The Bent County Development Foundation, in cooperation with the Southern Colorado Economic Development District invites the community to give input regarding economic development priorities and job creation at a meeting to be held at 5:30 p.m. Monday, June 6, at the John W. Rawlings Heritage Center, 560 Bent Avenue.

The meeting is a key component of the development of the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS), which addresses development needs and priorities for Bent County and other counties in the southeast region. The CEDS is updated every five years, and is required in order for our community to access funds for major projects from the U.S. Economic Development Administration.

Light refreshments will be served. For additional information or to confirm your attendance, contact Kim MacDonnell at the Bent County Development Foundation, 456-0452.
