First State Insights – Targeting Distribution + Logistics for economic development in central Delaware

In this episode of First State Insights, Linda Parkowski, executive director of the Kent Economic Partnership, speaks with Troy Mix, associate director of the University of Delaware’s Institute for Public Administration (IPA), about encouraging economic development in Central Delaware.

The Kent Economic Partnership is a public-private organization that aims to spur economic development in Central Delaware. Under Linda’s leadership, the Partnership has identified distribution and logistics activity as an economic development opportunity. Topics covered include lessons learned from marketing Kent County in the freight and logistics space, recent successes in attracting small- to medium-sized manufacturers to Central Delaware, and the role of transportation infrastructure and planning for Kent County’s economic development efforts.

This episode is made possible by the Delmarva Freight Working Group—an ongoing transportation planning and economic development partnership coordinated by IPA, the Delaware Department of Transportation, and Delaware’s three Metropolitan Planning Organizations: the Dover/Kent County MPO, the Salisbury/Wicomico MPO, and WILMAPCO.
