Our Vision

Summit Prosperity Initiative


The overarching vision of this Summit County collective effort is to “considerably improve the overall livability for the residents of Summit County” through economic prosperity + resiliency.

The Goals of the initiative are to:

  1. Develop a long term framework to support county-wide collaboration to become a strong community prepared for the future.
  2. Engage local businesses, non-profits, residents, and governmental agencies to support economic prosperity.
  3. Identify and support community projects that have regional economic significance.

Based on information gathered from the Department of Local Affairs (DOLA), the CU Leeds School of Business, the State Demographer’s Office, the Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT), plus statistics gathered within the county — it became evident that many residents in Summit County are not prospering.

Our mission is to work collaboratively with the entire community to develop plans enabling all Summit county residents to thrive.
