In the past, staff and consultants compiled a larger economic impact report that could run more than 100 pages. The downside was by the time many datasets were gathered and published, they were either somewhat dated, and-or didn’t reflect current economic conditions.
This straightforward economic snapshot provides community members with nuts-and-bolts facts on key fronts, like payroll, purchasing, and property taxes.This one-pager is shared with local elected, appointed, non-profit and business leaders, along with Cornell colleagues in Albany and Washington.
