Commissioners express concern about lack of a focused effort for economic development.
Members of the San Juan Regional Planning Commission are expressing concern about the dire need for economic development and the lack of coordinated efforts to lure new businesses and new jobs to the county.
In a wide-ranging discussion Tuesday night, Feb. 22, at the county courthouse, the commissioners reviewed several reports on local economic conditions and provided input for drafting an economic development plan to be submitted to Gov. John Hickenlooper’s “Bottom-Up Economic Development Plan Initiative.”

Ken Safranski, who sits on the 7-member planning commission, said the town and county need to put more effort into helping the local economy.
