The City of Amarillo and the Amarillo Economic Development Corporation (Amarillo EDC) believe that a comprehensive economic development strategy, supported and shared by both entities, can organize community goals into actionable steps, delineate responsibilities among stakeholders and provide a clear timeline for the execution of efforts.
For this reason, in November of 2016, the City of Amarillo and the Amarillo EDC agreed to co-fund a contract awarded to Avalanche Consulting, in cooperation with CDS, to develop an Economic Development Strategic Plan for the community. This process was completed in August 2017 with adoption of the plan by the City Council and AEDC Board.
During this in depth process there were be multiple trips to the Amarillo region, various stakeholder engagement events such as interviews, focus groups and public forums where we asked the citizens of Amarillo to participate in discussions about Amarillo’s economic future.
