JEDCO Releases 2014 Annual Report, Touts Fairfield Vision

AVONDALE, LA – JEDCO has released its 2014 Annual Report, “Investing in Innovation.”

         The report shows JEDCO worked with unique and creative businesses spanning a diverse range of industries moving Jefferson Parish forward.

         Greg Jordan, 2014 JEDCO Chairman, said JEDCO focused its efforts on the Fairfield Vision, a strategic plan to develop over 8,000 acres of green space on the West Bank of Jefferson Parish. Stakeholders want to cultivate the area, which is bounded by U.S. 90 to the north, Bayou Segnette to the east, and the hurricane protection levees on the south and west, into a mixed-use community with a range of housing and commercial opportunities. Jordan said the Fairfield plan will ensure the development of a distinctive community, which will be attractive to businesses and residents alike, and tie into the overall revival of the West Bank. Community and business leaders identified a need to enhance the strategic offerings available on the west side of the Mississippi River while also reshaping the perceptions of the area, he said. JEDCO will work with stakeholders to confront the challenges that face the West Bank while also developing ways to build upon the strengths of this part of the region.

With strong community partners, like the Jefferson Chamber, we are able to effect change in our community and develop a stronger, more creative action plan to help Jefferson Parish become the preferred destination for all businesses. We are grateful to work with so many wonderful men and women who have helped shape this area for the better.”

         Jordan said JEDCO will remain dedicated to area businesses and the community that supports them, their team will continue to better the economy through the retention and creation of quality jobs, entrepreneurship, and investment and JEDCO will focus on furthering the future of Jefferson Parish and the businesses that call it home.
