The Amherst IDA is the lead Economic Development Organization in the Town of Amherst and Village of Williamsville while also maintaining a large role in regional economic development. Economic Development efforts resulted in close to $3 billion of investment and 10's of 1000's of new jobs providing a tremendous return on the public's investment.
The Town of Amherst Comprehensive Master Plan is the basis for the Amherst IDA Mission Statement/Purpose. As the community continues to grow, traditional economic development focused on technology and industrial park development has been supplemented by redevelopment activities in older neighborhoods.
The results speak for themselves, as 80% of all new jobs created in the region since 1980 have been in the Town of Amherst. If you are seeking to locate your business in Western New York, there is no better choice than Amherst.
