New Look and New Name

Many changes are occurring within the organization! The Kandiyohi County and City of Willmar Economic Development Commission (EDC) will soon start using its new marketing name, Kandiyohi County Economic Development (KCED). Throughout the past year, the Marketing and Public Relations Committee has made recommendations to the Joint Operations and Joint Powers Boards. The new logo and name have both been approved, but daily use of them will wait until a new website is published in the spring of 2024! Stay tuned for more and read full news articles below for the latest updates.
