St. Cloud's newly created Economic Development Authority is holding meetings this week to develop a strategic plan for its future. EDA Director Cathy Mehelich says this is a new organization and they need a clear set of goals and initiatives.
The leader of a new economic development corporation for the St. Cloud Area starts tomorrow and John Kramer has some work to do. He'll head up the Greater St. Cloud Development Corporation which will be responsible for bringing new businesses to the area but also retaining existing businesses.
The St. Cloud Area Economic Development Partnership is being dissolved and in its wake is a new organization. The Greater St. Cloud Development Corporation has been created to handle economic development duties formerly done by The Partnership.
