The BLUEPRINT is a dynamic, new, economic development initiative – led by the private sector –to revitalize Westchester’s economy and make Westchester competitive with other regions in the nation. It is a multi-year, multi-million dollar campaign.
The BLUEPRINT is the brainchild of the Westchester County Association, Westchester’s preeminent business membership organization. It was launched in 2011, when a declining economy, loss of jobs, and six million square feet of empty commercial space in the county spurred the need for change.
In just twelve months, the BLUEPRINT has created an unprecedented level of collaboration with various stakeholders including the real estate, legal, finance, and general business communities, as well as Westchester’s young professionals, higher education institutions, and all of its cities. Great progress has been made!
