To this end, the OEDC actively promotes the Route 16 Corridor as a prime location for commercial and industrial endeavors.

Additionally, the OEDC is committed to bolstering and enriching the central business districts in Center Ossipee, Ossipee Village, and West Ossipee. Through these initiatives, the OEDC strives to enhance the economic vitality and prosperity of Ossipee.
