About North Shore Economic Vitality Partnership

The North Shore Economic Vitality Partnership (North Shore EVP) was formed in 2015 as a result of a comprehensive, community-based economic analysis that included community outreach events where community members, business owners and government leaders helped identify regional opportunities for economic growth, especially in the areas of agriculture and tourism, the largest economic drivers in the region. North Shore EVP was formed to provide the leadership and organization needed to implement the community’s vision. As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, North Shore EVP is uniquely positioned to strengthen regional communication and collaboration, drive community engagement across Oahu’s North Shore while building new civic leadership with each project we undertake.
