The new leadership assumed their posts at the CLDC’s  January organizational meeting. In addition, the CLDC is set to commence with goal setting in what is anticipated to be an active fiscal year. The board will begin discussions on goal setting and strategic planning at its February meeting.

The CLDC was chartered in late 2019 to serve as the primary economic development organization for the Town and City of Canandaigua. City and Town leadership are joined by representatives of the Canandaigua Area Chamber of Commerce to round out the organization’s membership. In fiscal year 2020, the board created its operational framework, established overarching economic development strategies, and began work on multiple projects.
