Economic Development

Business Resources, Job Creation and New Business Growth

Over the past years, our communities have invested in efforts to enhance economic development in our area. These efforts are partnered with efforts from Grand County, such as the Grand Profile and efforts from the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT). Recently, the towns of Fraser and Winter Park, along with the Grand County Office of Economic Development, the Fraser Valley Metropolitan Recreation District and the Winter Park Chamber developed a Strategic Economic Development Plan to continue these efforts.

Economic Development Resources

  • Systemic collection and dissemination of community econometrics
  • Business development including recruitment, expansion and retention
  • Infrastructure and capacity building through participation in planning and community representation
