ABOUT MCEDA

Since January 2007, interested citizens, with the involvement of the five governmental entities have worked to create a sustainable, community economic development effort that can represent the needs and values of the entire Montezuma County geographic region. The five government entities set economic development priorities and a Stakeholders Group, led by a Steering Team, met monthly to draft a mission, illustrated vision, guiding principles, By-laws, and funding plan.

MCEDA is a public/private partnership that promotes and coordinates development efforts in Montezuma County. The MCEDA Board of Directors is open to all members and is comprised of 5 government, 7 business and 3 at-large seats. For more information on MCEDA meeting and activities visit us at our next MCEDA Meeting, the second Tuesday of each month, 3:00PM at Axis Health. Economic knowledge and information are keys to better business and personal decision making. MCEDA endeavors to provide economic information and assistance that is informative and valuable for businesses, non-profit organizations, government agencies or personal enterprise. Scroll through our site and then give us a call.

Let us help you, we are dedicated to strengthening our regional economy.
