SCOR EDC was incorporated in 2010 to provide planning and coordination for regional issues, implement regional economic development priorities, identify funding sources, partner with other levels of government, and act as a regional catalyst for investment.
A strategic plan was created in response to the decline of the tobacco industry and the losses in manufacturing and related jobs between 2006 and 2009. The Councils and Mayors of the 5 counties agreed to jointly focus on the transition in the local economies to take advantage of new opportunities. With the extensive support of volunteers and stakeholders from across the region, SCOR EDC implemented its long-range strategic management plan.
