The success of the Wayne Economic Development Council did not come by accident, but by establishing a vision, following a strategic plan, making tough decisions, engaging the public and private sectors and doing the work.

To keep the momentum moving in a positive direction, the organization embarked on a third Growing a Quality Future Campaign with the aim of raising $2.3 million to tackle five strategic areas:

Growth through existing businesses; attracting new companies; connect business leaders with one another; promote workforce development and address infrastructure needs; and continue to provide economic development services at a high level through its public and private partnerships.

WEDC is on its way to the $2.3 million goal. So far, it has received pledges for $1.275 million.
