Municipal Planning and Financial Tools for Economic Development HandbookThis handbook focuses on preparing for 21st century economic challenges. It provides descriptions of planning and financial tools that can be used to support municipal goals for economic development, along with snapshots and case studies on how other jurisdictions are capitalizing on their assets. A municipal checklist for investment readiness is also presented, based on a sustainable economic and land-use planning perspective. To reflect today’s digital age, the checklist includes questions that acknowledge technology-driven changes to Ontario’s rural and urban communities – the way municipalities make their first impression, the way people and organizations connect to one another, and the way our choices are increasing on how and where we live, work, shop, study and invest.
