City Council Passes Proclamation Recognizing National Economic Development Week
National Economic Development Week is May 8-13. The purpose of this designated week is to increase awareness of economic development in communities across the country. Economic development, by definition, is a program, group of policies, or set of activities that positively influence economic change in a community by or through:
- Wealth generation
- Economic diversification
- Job growth and preservation and/or
- Building the local tax base
In Commerce City, we focus most of our economic development resources on job growth and new investment through primary employers, which are the companies that produce goods and services sold outside the local community,
bringing new money into the economy. This is accomplished in part through the collaboration and support of a vast network of economic development partners. For Commerce City, these partners include:
- Adams County Economic Development;
- Metro Denver Economic Development Council;
- The Economic Development Council of Colorado;
- The State of Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade; and
- The International Economic Development Council
