Meeting Schedule

Economic Dev. Summit Polling Results:

Many of the questions were structured so participants had to identify their top two or three priorities.  The totals for questions that allowed multiple responses per question will exceed 100%.  For example, the total percentage for a question allowing “Top Two” responses would total 200%.  The percentage response for each option represents the percentage of participants that selected that option as one of their top two choices.
