Economic Development Commission
In 2009 the Sustainable Woodstock Economic Development Action Group drafted a town economic development plan which proposed the formation of a Town/Village Economic Development Commission (EDC). The EDC was appointed in December 2009 and continues to work for the betterment of the Town and Village of Woodstock.
Local First Alliance
Local First Alliance, a program of Vital Communities, is a coalition of independent businesses, nonprofits, farms, community leaders and citizens committed to thinking local first. Members are encouraged to buy local, give local, and minimize what can’t easily be localized, in order to build stronger, more self-reliant community economies. As a founding member, Sustainable Woodstock commissioned and produced the distinctive “buy local” posters seen around the Upper Valley.
