Article from the SLV REC Newsboy
One by one businesses began to leave local towns, while stories of criminal activity began to emerge. What would become of our beautiful Valley and the small towns the dot the Rio Grande?
Would this be our future? No jobs, no commerce and no place to raise family?
From these bleak times, the URGEDC has emerged as a bright spark. Initially, formed over 10 years ago as a pro-business voice for the Village at Wolf Creek project, their influence has been much
greater. It’s 7 a.m. in the remodeled dining room of the Windsor Hotel in Del Norte,
Colorado . While most people haven’t had their first cup of coffee, the URGEDC are energetically making plans for Valley change. The energy of the group is surprising and dynamic. This isn’t just another business meeting. “We’re infectious, and we know we have the right people to make changes” said Tom Slade, HOA President of South Fork Ranches. “We love his area and want to see it succeed”. The URGEDC Board members believe that if it’s not them, then who?
Under this mission, the group created a Public Private Partnership (PPP). To date 24 Valley businesses have contributed to funding a team to oversee Economic Development. Marty and Bonnie Asplin enthusiastically have taken on this role. Mike Hurst, President of Del Norte Federal Bank and President of URGEDC explains that the goal of this PPP is to “create a one-stop shop for businesses or people moving to the area”.
“What is the red tape, what are the obstacles, and how can we help?”
One cannot help but be inspired by the picture they paint. Full retail shops, year round tourism and e-commerce. “A place where families stay, live and thrive,” says Cheryl Jones-Seneff, Secretary for URGEDC and Key Accounts Executive with SLVREC. We are watching a Renaissance occur in the small town of Del Norte that will hopefully expand to other surrounding communities. The Windsor, Three Barrel, and various main street shops have begun drawing people to the town.
SLVREC selected URGEDC as this months Whatever It Takes organization because they are bucking the status quo in the face of adversity. They are passionate and relentless in their mission in creating new outlets for businesses and families.
