The EDC

The mission of the Kandiyohi County and City of Willmar Economic Development Commission is to be a catalyst for economic growth of the greater Kandiyohi County Area.

2021 Strategic Priority Areas

EDC boards and committee members and other participants explored and considered several potential priority areas for the EDC for 2021. A key to success is collaboration, which the group feels is a strength of the EDC. Following small group discussion and various voting methods, the group narrowed the focus to three major areas:

  1. Workforce Development: Help build a skilled workforce that meets the needs of the local economy in order to grow and support businesses.
  2. Business Support: Supporting existing businesses and new business opportunities by providing awareness of and offering the EDC’s services.
  3. Broadband: Educate, lobby and collaborate to secure future-proof broadband services throughout Kandiyohi County.
