Wayne County Economic Development Growth Engine (EDGE)

The Wayne County Economic Development Growth Engine (EDGE) was abolished as part of the newly adopted Executive Branch Reorganization Plan. Under the plan, the Community Development Department (formerly of EDGE) will join the new Department of Health, Veterans and Community Wellness.

Responsibilities of the former department will be transferred to the Wayne County Economic Development Corporation. The new structure will better enable the County to coordinate its economic development activity and support business and local community development needs, while reducing cost to the general fund.

The Executive Branch Reorganization Plan is available on the Wayne County Executive section of our website.
