Cattaraugus County is currently accepting proposals for Community Visioning Consultant that will develop and complete three area wide community assessments, (4 four areas that include seven municipalities) provide a two day intensive training for municipal leaders and follow-up assistance for municipalities in Cattaraugus County. The community assessments will be used to further economic development by providing baseline data or a foundation for the community development efforts.

Cattaraugus County has a clear vision for its future based upon prior planning efforts, supplemented with new research, and public outreach. Consistently, the message has been that residents of the county want to see existing cities, villages and downtowns thrive and prosper. These communities anchor the surrounding countryside, and create centers for jobs, services and community interaction. Cattaraugus County is investing in projects and programs that make this area attractive to private investment and support the redevelopment and investment in the traditional downtowns as destinations to attract visitors.
