The City of Essex Junction is pleased to announce that it will host online economic development conversations. These discussions will be led by Vermont economic development professionals and will provide residents with an opportunity to participate in a Q&A session.

The first conversation, scheduled for May 16th at 6:30 PM, will feature Heather Carrington, a principal consultant at Carrington Community Development Services. Heather, the former economic development director for the City of Winooski, is currently working with the Town of Hardwick on a variety of economic development plans and grants. She will share her invaluable insights from Hardwick's sequential economic development projects, which unlocked additional opportunities and funds while fulfilling the goals of their town plan. Heather's strategic planning expertise will provide realistic ideas about timelines, capacity, and goals.

These conversations will focus on turning ideas into reality and provide residents with tangible insights that can be applied in the community. The City of Essex Junction is hopeful that interested residents will participate and contribute to these discussions, helping to improve economic development in the City and further the strategic plan discussions.
