Economic Development

Grand County is open for business and is excited to provide the business resources and information needed to make your business successful.

Over the past years, our communities have invested in efforts to enhance economic development in our area. These efforts are partnered with efforts from from Grand County such as the Grand Profile and efforts from the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT). Recently, the towns of Fraser and Winter Park along with the Grand County Office of Economic Development, Fraser Valley Metropolitan Recreation District and Winter Park & Fraser Chamber developed a Strategic Economic Development Plan to continue these efforts.

Economic Development provides resources in the fashion of;

  • Systemic collection and dissemination of community econometrics
  • Business Development including recruitment, expansion and retention
  • Infrastructure and Capacity building through participation in planning and community representation
