Economic Development Discovery Sessions
Recently Job Service and Park County Extension conducted discovery sessions to gain a better understanding of local priorities and gather feedback from community members. Nearly eighty people came together to explore Park County’s strengths and weaknesses, the meaning of economic and workforce development, the importance of infrastructure to the economy, and to answer, “where are we and where do we want to go?”
You can see the top five priorities and a summary of the process in the infographic below. Both Job Service and Park Co. Extension gained important perspective on areas to focus economic development efforts. Participants in the discovery sessions have also gained valuable connections to individuals and groups that are working on some of the needs identified throughout the process.
