Easton EDC Launches Market Opportunities Assessment 

Easton, MD – The Easton EDC, in partnership with the Town of Easton Department of Planning and Zoning, is launching a survey that is open to anyone that lives in Easton or Talbot County. The purpose of the survey is to provide input on a broader market assessment to identify opportunities and strategies for business retention and attraction. The assessment will also identify specific niches to create new business opportunities, especially in the areas of retail and entertainment. 

The Town of Easton has served as a hub of commerce for the eastern shore for over 300 years. As we look to the future, we want to be sure that Easton is identifying the business opportunities in the most optimal locations to serve the current and future households of the town, the county, and beyond. The assessment will also guide land use decisions, objectives, and strategies for the Town’s on-going East End Small Area Plan and the Dover Road Corridor as well as the update to the Comprehensive Plan.  

The survey is completely anonymous and we encourage everyone to participate. Please share the survey with your friends, family, co-workers and neighbors.  Anyone who lives in Easton or Talbot County and is willing to participate in the survey is welcome to do so as the more input received, the better and more likely the outcomes will represent the needs of our community.  The online survey can be accessed via this link: https://discovereaston.com/retail-market-survey/.
