The five-year Economic Development Strategy delivers on the Mayor’s promise to provide the District with a bold, comprehensive strategy to guide such work throughout the government. The strategy seeks to provide city leaders and residents with three deliverables – an economic-impact model, a public-sector strategy and private-sector commitments. A Strategy Advisory Group will aid the District government and university researchers with the plan’s development.
