Community Economic Review Work Sessions

May 26 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

The Talbot County Department of Economic Development and Tourism is hosting Community Economic Review Work Sessions to share the economic resiliency toolkit developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Talbot County officials were part of a group of economic and workforce development professionals led by the Mid-Shore Regional Council and the Tri-County Council of the Lower Eastern Shore who worked with Salisbury University’s Eastern Shore Regional GIS Cooperative (ESRGC) to develop the tools in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The resiliency toolkit will be discussed along with other information from the ESRGC’s Delmarva Index.

These tools are available to help officials identify challenges facing the region and assist in long-term planning and the development of public policy. While the tools created for the Eastern Shore Economic Recovery Project will have many uses, they give decision makers information to understand long-term trends and anticipate challenges. The U.S. Economic Development Administration, a bureau of the Department of Commerce, funded the project.

“I am excited to share this information with the leaders in our communities,” says Cassandra Vanhooser, director of Talbot County Economic Development and Tourism. “These dashboards hold a wealth of information that can help us better understand our communities and the current economic climate.”

The sessions, free and open to the public, begin at 8 a.m. The remaining meetings will be held on May 26 at the Oxford Community Center and on June 23 at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum Van Lennup Auditorium in St. Michaels. For more information, call 410-770-8000. For a preview of the Delmarva Index, visit the delmarvaindex.org.
