The Chatham Economic Development Corporation (EDC) is a private, non-profit organization working to make Chatham County the preferred location for emerging growth companies.

In 2013, the EDC spearheaded an effort to develop a conceptual land use plan for Chatham County. Our motivation was to position the county for sustainable and balanced growth for future generations. Working with County and Town staff, we developed several growth scenarios. We then sought public input, both through public meetings and an online survey tool.
