Bringing the future to our communities today
Prowers County Development, Inc. (PCDI) represents business and economic development interests within Prowers County. PCDI board members and staff work with City, County, State, and private industry leaders to foster new business and support expansion of businesses that contribute to economic growth. PCDI provides assistance to new and existing businesses with retention, relocation, and expansion needs. We assist in finding appropriate sites or suitable buildings based on the clients’ needs. We provide assistance with any necessary permitting and help new developers walk through the process of planning, zoning, incentive negotiations, and other business development issues.
PCDI will be hosting a series of Business Seminars throughout the year with an emphasis on providing information and services to assist our existing businesses. Our first two Seminars have been scheduled in May. We have outstanding speakers coming in for each of these seminars. On May 7th, we hosted an Ag Succession Seminar, which focused on planning the transition of the family farm and ranch from one generation to the next, and also on intra-family communications. Jeffrey Tranel from CSU Extension was our featured speaker. We had members of five area family-owned farm & ranch operations attend and their response was very favorable on the information presented.
We hosted two Customer Service Seminars on May 22nd and 23rd. These seminars were for both employers and employees in any business that deals with the public. Katherine Correll, Executive Director at Downtown Colorado Inc. gave a presentation on unique customer experience. Beth Parish talked about the idea of understanding (and making it about) your customer. The training program was designed to provide ideas and discussion about how to identify the key needs of customers, engage with locals and visitors, and help businesses develop a stronger customer base. We had ten participants for each session from retail and service businesses. Participants were engaged in group discussions in both presentations.
Our next Business Seminar will focus on Safety Training. More information will be coming soon.
The PCDI office is located in Suite 103 in the Rodeway Inn Cow Palace, 1301 North Main, just as you enter Lamar from the north on Highways 50 and 287. Stop in and visit us at our new location.
