The Grand Valley Economic Development Committee

Mission:

THe GVEDC is dedicated to the support, retention and promotion of a healthy and prosperous business environment in Battlement Mesa and Parachute.  In cooperation with the Rifle Regional Economic Development Corportation, the GVEDC will strive to maximize our community's business opportunities and resources.  The GVEDC is a group of local business men and women who joined together in early 2012 to create a local economic development committee that is affiliated with the Rifle Regional Economic Development Corporation.  Our committee, consisting of volunteers from the community which we serve, recognizes that a combined effort among our dedicated volunteers will be more successful than individual efforts.  The collective knowlege base of the GVEDC volunteers combined with the comprhensive economic development strategies and resources available to us through the RREDC provide a variety of helpful services and resources.  Our services are free to our members and we encourage your participation in our effort to build and maintain a healthy and prosperous business enviroment.
