It’s been full steam ahead for the Camas-Washougal Economic Development Association, a partnership between the cities of Camas and Washougal, and the Port of Camas-Washougal that was organized earlier this year.
CWEDA Director Paul Dennis gave a report to the elected leadership of the three entities last night, giving a fast and furious recount of where his efforts have been focused.
The foundation for the organization is being set, which includes bylaws ready for adoption, pursuit of 501(c)(6) status, and building branding and marketing tools.
Based on Dennis’ statements, it is also clear that legitimate contacts with small and medium-sized companies that want to relocate or expand operations in the Camas-Washougal area are being made and developed.
“Leads are being generated, contacts are being made,” said Camas Mayor Scott Higgins. “There are companies that want to locate to the area.”
