Community Development Committee

The WKREDA Community Development Committee focuses on issues that effect the economic vitality of communities but may not be considered “traditional” economic development issues.  Things like housing, healthcare, childcare, and other issues which impact the daily living in our communities are issues our committee may work on.  We focus on issues facing many communities and the issues most on the minds of WKREDA members.
