Monroe County, NY Executive Maggie Brooks announced today a new collaborative initiative to create more jobs, better align resources and make it easier for businesses to locate and grow in Monroe County and the Greater Rochester area.
The plan, the Partnership for Economic Growth, would streamline economic development in the community by centrally locating public and private resources under one roof.
Brooks said this one-stop shopping office would be located in downtown Rochester at street level. A location for the office has not been selected.
Representatives from various city, county and private groups would work in this office providing assistance to companies already here and those considering coming to the area.
The partners in the initiative are Greater Rochester Enterprise, Rochester Business Alliance, RochesterWorks!, Rochester Downtown Development Corp., Infotonics Technology Center, Excell Partners, Trillium Group, High Tech Rochester and Rochester Gas & Electric.
