Economic Development Strategy & Implementation Plan

A vibrant downtown is the cornerstone of a healthy local economy. Keeping the downtown attractive and welcoming not only for visitors, but also local residents, requires a renewed focus on the key elements that make a downtown thriving: easy navigation, dynamic retail and a strong sense of place.

Econsult Solutions, Inc. (ESI), a Philadelphia-based economic consulting firm, helped the borough develop an Economic Development Strategy and Implementation Plan.  The plan provides Borough Council with a menu of economic development initiatives and investments that will help propel Media as a unique regional destination to be enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.

The Economic Development Strategy and Implementation Plan was funded by the borough and by a generous grant from the Transportation and Community Development Initiative of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission.
