Invest With NEDC

Nevada Economic Development Council invites you to join in the partnership for progressive community growth

It is the purpose of the NEDC to assist in the development and implementation of a plan to encourage and promote the establishment, development and retention of industrial, manufacturing, housing and commercial interests in the City of Nevada. The effectiveness of the plan will be measured by how it diversifies the economic base by creating and retaining jobs, increasing or adding new businesses, adding tax base and broadening community betterment. As a result of the plan, the City and its citizens should enjoy better prosperity, higher standard of living and a better quality of life than is possible without such planning and development.

Want to play a role in Nevada’s Growth? Nevada needs your participation to continue moving the community forward.

Nevada Economic Development Council (NEDC) was incorporated as a non-profit 501 C6 corporation in the early 1990’s. Although the City of Nevada and the NEDC are separate entities, a partnership of nearly 20 years has existed to accomplish a shared vision for community growth. Typical players in this partnership have been NEDC, City officials and staff, Iowa Department of Economic Development and the community’s utility providers. Area businesses and citizens play an important role in supporting growth within the community.

Over the past decade, these partnerships have provided new projects that have added more than $53 Million in assessed valuation and provided more than $1,624,000 in additional tax revenues to the City of Nevada annually. Jobs created/retained as a result of these projects total more than 1000. A stagnate and “no growth” community is a dying community. At a time when many communities of Nevada’s size have experienced declining industrial and business growth, Nevada continues in a growth mode.
