Economic development lies at the heart of the Big Horn Mountain Coalition’s purpose. This objective underpins our other focus areas, and as an Economic Development District designated by the US Economic Development Administration, the Coalition facilitates economic opportunities for the communities within its four counties.
Our focus on Quality Education stems from the importance of education to supporting economic development. Boundless Recreation is important to our quality of life, but it also drives much of our regional tourism industry – one of the leading industries in our economy. Finally, the desire for strong economic opportunity boils down to wanting our communities to thrive – hence our focus on Community Spirit.
We believe that each of our focus areas are linked with one another, and as such any of our initiatives come with a strong consideration of how such an initiative might best create economic opportunity through the various focus areas.
