The EDC measures performance using recognized quantitative metrics, including:
- employment growth
- increased assessed property values (commercial)
- vacancy rates
- number of businesses/non-profits directly supported
- number of businesses and projects for which EDC provided technical assistance
- value and square footage of projects for which EDC provided technical assistance
These are well-established metrics upon which economic development organizations (EDOs) measure performance. A number of qualitative measures are also compiled, including testimonials, adherence to the Economic Development Recommendations within the Town's Master Plan, and improving organized efforts to promote local businesses.
