Ulster County has a rich history. From our agrarian beginnings to our emergence as a regional powerhouse, the county has been an integral part of the economy of New York State. From the 1990s onward, the changing global economy requires that we adapt to a very different economic climate, including our leadership in the economic development field, the way we work together, how we plan and develop our communities, and how we prepare our workforce for the key industries that can grow and flourish in Ulster County.
The Ulster Tomorrow plan identifies 15 strategies with a large inventory of proposed actions. The Team Leaders are pursuing these strategies as part of the four key economic development goals.

4 key economic development goals
Ulster Tomorrow is a research-based, broadly participatory plan that clearly spells out its plan for action and measures its own performance. This plan isn’t sitting on a shelf. Implementation of the strategies is underway thanks to the Team Leaders and the many citizens who have volunteered to contribute their time and energy to its success.
