This article describes a city-level economic development policymaking network. To do this, we identify the key participants in the network, derived both from the scholarly literature and experience. We then outline the network's structure. We refer to that structure as the All-Channel Star Network. An examination of this network structure will involve a consideration of interactions between network participants and leadership within the larger city economic development network.
