Private Industry Creates Jobs
At MCEDD, we believe that the private sector creates jobs and our role as a public-private partnership is to support the sustainable growth of industry to create meaningful employment. We focus on the area’s core assets to support six target industry areas:
- High Tech: Unmanned Systems
- Manufacturing: Fermentation Science, Value-Added Agriculture
- Forest/Wood Products
- Renewable Energy

Setting the Stage for Development
In order to support private industry to create jobs, the physical infrastructure (roads, bridges, water systems, etc) must be able to accommodate industry and residents needs. As such, we prioritize and pursue regionally significant infrastructure projects that will make the region more competitive and a better place to live and work.
Our goal: Plan for, maintain and re-invest in infrastructure, including attainable housing, to provide for current population demands and support future economic development opportunities.
