What We Do

  1. Recruit
  2. Retain
  3. Encourage Expansion

The Metro District Board of Directors understands that as Pueblo West grows it is critical that new businesses are recruited to the area. Economic Development falls under the purview of the Community Development Department but is truly a collaborative effort between most all departments in the District as well as the elected Board of Directors. The Metro District Board created an Economic Development Committee comprised of staff, board members, and local residents to spearhead marketing and promotion, proposal reviews, and other economic development activities and then provide recommendations to the Board. The Metro District is actively looking to recruit new retail and other commercial businesses to the area. New retail businesses will enrich the quality of life for residents and visitors, while new commercial businesses will create more primary jobs. Both are vital as Pueblo West continues to be one of the fastest growing communities in southern Colorado. rawpixel-652547-unsplash
