EDASC this week is celebrating Economic Development Week, a chance to shine a spotlight on our work. Let’s start off by answering a seemingly simple yet broad question: What is economic development? It is the intentional practice of improving a community's economic well-being and quality of life. It includes a broad range of activities to attract, create, and retain jobs, and to foster a resilient, pro-growth tax base and an inclusive economy. The practice of economic development is a collaborative effort involving industry, government and a myriad of community stakeholders.

Creating this awareness is important because many people aren’t aware of economic development or what EDASC does.

Our initiatives include:

EDASC is involved in all areas of economic development because we understand that a vibrant community is one that makes it possible for everyone to thrive. We invite you to learn more about our work and how you can become involved. 

Thank you to our investors, partners and everyone who supports EADSC’s work in Skagit County.
