About the EDC
The purpose of the Economic Development Commission (EDC) is to plan and implement sustainable economic development in Woodstock, to:
Increase the number of visitors who are most likely to develop connections to the area and contribute to the economy
Grow and diversify the resident population to enrich the community and the quality of life.
To plan & implement sustainable economic development in Woodstock, we undertake the following activities:
Encouraging and helping existing and new businesses prosper, creating more job opportunities, becoming more environmentally conscious,
Making this a livable and welcoming community for a diverse, multi-generational population,
Promoting a welcoming, sustainable Woodstock area,
Improving and making the best use of land, buildings and other physical infrastructure, and
Developing tools to promote a sustainable economy.
The members of the EDC are Jon Spector (Chair), Joe DiNatale (Vice Chair), Julia Cooke, Courtney Lowe, Michael Malik, Larry Niles, Elizabeth Reaves and Mica Seely. (Note: there is one vacancy on the EDC currently. Application forms are available here and should be submitted to Town Hall.)
From 2016 to 2018 we supported 35 projects to improve the quality of life in Woodstock, support job creation, market the town to encourage visitors, plan for the future, and support the operations of the Commission:
