- By 2020, Nederland’s economy is local, community based, self-sufficient and is characterized by diverse and essential products, services and jobs that both support the local community and are mindful of potential impacts on the environment.
- By 2020, Nederland’s economy encourages and welcomes new, non-traditional economic models, the responsible management of tourism and the stewardship of the environment.
