Strategic Plan Session



March 29, 2018

Dear Community Partner,

The Truro & Colchester Partnership for Economic Prosperity (TCPEP) is a new organization dedicated to increasing business opportunities, attracting talent and increasing investment in the Colchester region.

We are reaching out to the community to seek assistance and input with the creation of our Regional Economic Development Strategy. The Partnership has engaged Frank Gallant with Peak Experiences Consulting to facilitate our strategic planning process, and we are asking you, a valued community stakeholder, to provide input into the plan’s development.

There are two key ways you can provide input:
• Provide input online via the Peak Experience portal
• Attend one of our upcoming focus group meetings

Details on the online portal and information about the focus group meeting are listed below.

We look forward to hearing about your ideas and inspirations. If you have any questions or if you would like to discuss aspects of this process with us, please do not hesitate to contact us directly.
