2016 Membership Letter and Agreement

Silver Valley Economic Development Corporation 
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.
