Southern Torrance County Economic Development Strategy Community Meeting
205 S Ninth St, Estancia

6 – 7:30 pm
What is the purpose of the Southern Torrance County Economic Development Plan?
The purpose of this project is to create a vision for the economies of communities in southern Torrance County. The reason to focus on the southern part of the County is because the opportunities in this area are very different from the communities along I-40. The ideas in the plan have to be specific enough to give County leaders projects that can make a positive difference in the County.
What is economic development?
Economic development is the process of improving a region or community’s economic well-being and quality of life. This can include more and better job opportunities for residents, opportunities for your children to remain in the community to work and raise their families, success of local businesses and in some cases, recruiting new businesses. Successful economic development is different for every community.
Why does it matter?
A healthy local economy makes a community a great place to live and do business. The economies of Torrance County are based in your culture, history and place. The County is asking your help in identifying what success looks like in Torrance County because you will carry out and benefit from the ideas in the plan.
