Grow the County & Manage its Growth
Chautauqua County has been losing jobs and population since 1980. It is time to turn that around. We need more vibrant businesses. We need successful farms. We need successful tourism. We need to be welcoming to new investment, new businesses, and new populations. We need more taxpayers—companies and people. Businesses, Farms, tourism: it’s all people. In response to the conditions of the current pandemic, many urban dwellers are open to considering the benefits of small town and rural living. We can market the assets of Chautauqua to those who are looking for a different lifestyle.
