The Wall Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) has made significant progress in the past seven months and is looking forward to the future of economic development.
The WEDC received an official Certificate of Incorporation from the South Dakota Secretary of State, Shantel Krebs, on Monday, April 11. Becoming officially incorporated is not the only step the WEDC has taken recently. WEDC received $2,500 from a South Dakota Housing Development Authority cost-sharing incentive program to conduct a housing needs study. The City of Wall will provide the additional $2,500 matching funding. WEDC will work with Community Partners Research, Inc. of Faribault, Minn., who will conduct the study. WEDC hopes to begin the study in early June.
If you would like to learn more about the goals of WEDC, have questions or comments, you can contact WEDC Executive Director Cheyenne McGriff at 605-279-2658 or [email protected].
