JEDCO Updates The Jefferson EDGE 2020

AVONDALE, LA – Over the last two months, The Jefferson Parish Economic Development Commission (JEDCO) has been holding stakeholder meetings to update The Jefferson EDGE 2020, the parish's long-term strategic economic development plan to promote sustainability, job creation and investment.

         Over the course of its 15-year history, The EDGE has served as a road map for community development and a shared vision for the future.

         While the objectives of the current EDGE are largely fulfilled, JEDCO reps said the results of this plan are tangible and ongoing such as the development of the 500-acre Churchill Technology & Business Park and quality of life improvements related to the beautification of major corridors, education and Fat City redevelopment.

         JEDCO began spearheading a new strategic planning process to arrive at an updated, refocused Jefferson EDGE with a five-year scope addressing the parish’s most current impediments to growth as well as economic growth opportunities.

         JEDCO has retained GCR, Inc. to prepare the initial framework for the plan, facilitate the planning process and craft the ultimate strategy.      JEDCO based its first round of stakeholder discussions regarding industry priorities around the baseline assessment.

The updated plan will be released this summer.
