Small Business and Economic Development Committee

The Town of Glenville remains committed to enhancing economic vitality of small business and community interests. To that end the Town Board appointed a Small Business and Economic Development Committee (SBEDC) to the task. The SBEDC seeks to support businesses by:

  • Working with commercial interests to develop ways to attract small businesses to Glenville;

  • Creating a marketing plan designed to attract area and national businesses, new residents and funding sources;

  • Developing community-related events designed to increase business activity within the commercial corridor to encourage community participation in local business establishments;

  • Assist with the development of a “town center” that would provide residents an opportunity to come together in one place and enjoy a common experience that would benefit economic development;

  • Work with current small businesses on retention and recruitment of other small businesses into Glenville by creating a Small Business Mentoring Program.

  • Streamline the town’s economic development policies and practices to enhance a “business friendly” environment and simplify the economic development process;

  • Coordinate with Metroplex and other funding agencies to encourage more economic development investments into Glenville;

  • Explore the beautification of the commercial corridors and town/village gateways.

  • Market and attract new residents to Glenville and specifically those who are coming to the area for employment opportunities;

  • Work with the Town Board’s parks liaison and respective staff to integrate the parks master plan into our towns economic develop initiatives.
