To All Deltaville Business Owners:
As you may be aware, the business community of the immediate Deltaville area is hopeful of establishing Deltaville as the “Boating Capital of the Chesapeake” as a protected trademark to be utilized exclusively for the benefit of Deltaville and its businesses in promoting economic growth and prosperity. The marine industry, and all of the businesses and services supporting it and thriving because of it, has been recognized as generating a significant financial impact for Middlesex County and the immediate region. The business community of Deltaville is desirous of creating a strategic plan for continued economic development based on a mission statement that is currently being developed to guide the plan. In order to develop the most comprehensive plan possible, the steering committee of the newly formed Deltaville Business Initiative is seeking your immediate and thoughtful feedback concerning the proposed long-term mission of this initiative, as well as your “vision” for where you would like to see Deltaville evolve in the next ten years – economically, physically, environmentally and aesthetically. The committee is also interested in your ideas for improvement for Deltaville that can be accomplished in the short-term, i.e., within the next year.
For Deltaville to continue to grow and thrive, it is important that this is a comprehensive effort that includes feedback and ideas from the entire business community. With a thoughtful approach from our business community through a unified effort, we will be able to assure and guide our future as a thriving and prosperous community.

Deltaville Business Initiative Steering Committee
The Middlesex County Board of Supervisors approved a resolution on October 2, 2012 supporting the efforts of the Deltaville Community Association (DCA) to have Deltaville named the official “Boating Capital of the Chesapeake.” The DCA is planning and seeks to implement a sustainable economic development plan for Deltaville that includes the designation of Deltaville as the “Boating Capital of the Chesapeake.” The first step in planning a sustainable economic plan is to establish the precise goals and objectives, in as much detail as possible, of the effort. To that end, those involved or interested in developing an achievable, economic plan for Deltaville are asked to provide immediate feedback in order to develop an overall mission statement and establish long and short-range goals for the project. This economic development effort, called the Deltaville Business Initiative, is being developed by a small group of volunteers through a steering committee that is currently seeking your input concerning the future of Deltaville and its long-term economic viability. The Deltaville Business Initiative steering committee is interested in your thoughts, feedback, comments and questions concerning this proposed economic development plan for Deltaville. This plan needs your input to help determine how Deltaville should go forward in promoting itself as the “Boating Capital of the Chesapeake”, as well as enhancing the long term economic viability for the area and its businesses. Our local economy revolves around the water and all of its related activities. The Deltaville Business Initiative seeks to find the best and most appropriate ways to capitalize on our relationship with the water. Please take some time from your busy schedule to review the following draft of proposed goals, shortterm and long-term, that eventually will be utilized in the development of the Strategic Plan and the overall Mission (or Vision) of this endeavor. Please offer your opinion, as to practicality and overall viability, regarding the proposed goals by indicating whether you agree or disagree that it should be included as a goal to be achieved. Also, please offer your opinion concerning additional goals and/or visions that should be included in the discussion by responding to the attached questionnaire. Please respond electronically via email, or by hard copy if necessary, at your earliest convenience so the data can be compiled and used for development of the Strategic Plan and Mission Statement.
