Mission: Silver Valley Economic Development Corporation (SVEDC) is operated
exclusively for the promotion of economic development in the scenic north Idaho
region situated along the Coeur d’Alene River system. The region includes the
communities of Mullan, Wallace, Osburn, Kellogg, Wardner, Smelterville and
Our priority and focus is to
create living wage job opportunities and growing the tax base by helping our
local primary industry employers grow, assisting relocating businesses, and
start-ups; improving the quality of life and standard of living for the people
of the Silver Valley.
The mission of the
Silver Valley Economic Development Corporation (SVEDC) is to promote economic
development in the SilverValley. Our goal is to improve the economic quality
of life and the standard of living for the people of the SilverValley. At present, our major focus is to grow job
opportunities from within our geographical region and local primary industry
employers, but at the same time pursue potential external recruitment
opportunities that might emerge. As
adequate road and utility Infrastructure, housing, and workforce development
are mandatory for growth in primary industry businesses, we have taken a lead
in providing solutions to shortfalls in those areas of Community Development. For the business owners that we cannot help by
any of these means, our focus is to increase the standard of living thereby
providing more disposable income, which we believe will ultimately help any
employer or business in the Silver Valley.
We believe that with
the effort of a united SilverValley, we can and will
have increased prosperity. The SVEDC
Board of Directors, our membership, and I are inviting you to invest in the
probability of a better day for all Valley residents. This investment will be utilized in meeting
expenses that arise out of our endeavors to build jobs in the SilverValley. The enclosed Partnership Agreement sets forth
suggested investment amounts. These are
only suggestions. Please feel free to
pledge as you see fit, but by all means invest in the future of our SilverValley.
Please fill out the
enclosed Partnership Agreement and mail or deliver the investment to
SVEDC. If you have any questions
concerning this request for your membership, feel free to contact me, or any
Board member. Thank you for caring about
the future of the Silver Valley.
We are looking forward
to working with you on building a better future for all of us!
