Latest News – April 2
Economic Assessment Meetings Scheduled Next Week
Do you want to be a part of making the economy in Leadville and Lake County grow? Then mark your calendar for next week for two meetings regarding the Leadville and Lake County Professional Economic Development Assessment and Plan.
Sponsored locally by the Leadville/Lake County Economic Development Corporation (EDC), the assessment is offered by the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) and the Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) at no cost to you.
So what exactly is an Economic Development Assessment? Well, it’s an analysis of what really drives the local economy focusing on what’s known as a SWOT* (Strengths, Weakness, Opportunities, Threats).
The meetings will be conducted by a team of rural economic development professionals who share information and listen to your good input and ideas, and help you plan for economic growth.
Next Tuesday, April 7 the EDC will host a meeting from 6 – 7:30 p.m. up at the college in the Climax Building, Room 401. Then on Thursday, April 9 the Economic Development Assessment SWOT Analysis will report their findings from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. Meals will be provided at both meeting, so RSVP is appreciated to the EDC at 719-427-0118.
According to the the flyer, “A strong local economy is important to everyone – it supports good schools, roads, public infrastructure and services and helps create jobs and prosperity, concludes the flyer regarding the upcoming meetings. The assessment will result in a basic roadmap to how Leadville and Lake County can keep its economy growing and strong. “
