The Williamsburg Economic Development Authority (EDA) was chartered by Williamsburg City Council in 1975.  Although the EDA's seven Directors are appointed by City Council, it is a political subdivision, independent of the City.  The EDA works to assist existing businesses, attract new businesses, and market the City as a premier business location. 

The EDA strives to be aware of the needs and concerns of City businesses and to identify, encourage and assist in the implementation of programs and activities that will contribute to the City's economy. 

Read the EDA's Economic Development Plan and/or a two-page Summary of the Economic Development Plan

The EDA’s regular monthly meeting is held on the second Wednesday of each month at 3:00 p.m. in room 127 at the Williamsburg Stryker Center, 412 N. Boundary Street, Williamsburg, Virginia 23185. Meeting agendas and minutes are posted here.
