Spectator News article on Gregory as chairman Annapolis County Economic Development Committee and Municipal Councillor 2014

The Municipality of the County of Annapolis is embarking on a different kind of development plan it hopes will address some of the economic challenges facing the rural area. County council has approved an initiative that sets out a list of economic and development goals. Now it wants input from local residents. The county chose not to join a regional enterprise network made up of other municipalities in the Annapolis Valley.

“We decided that we would draft our own economic development strategy,” Gregory Heming, chairman of the county’s economic development committee, said Monday.

The committee has been working to ensure the economic strategy reflects a diversity of views on job creation and long-term prosperity.
