TCPEP seeking community input as it develops regional economic development strategy for Colchester

The Truro & Colchester Partnership for Economic Prosperity (TCPEP) is looking for community input as it develops a regional economic development strategy.

The Partnership, formed in late 2017 to improve economic development in the Colchester region, will be hosting eight community focus groups over the coming weeks, as well as accepting feedback through the TCPEP website.

The two-hour focus groups will be held in various communities, including Truro, Millbrook, Stewiacke, Bass River, and Tatamagouche.
