Business Council accepting Community Review applications

The Wyoming Business Council and the University of Wyoming Extension invite you to apply for a community review to benefit your community in 2020.

The Business Council is Wyoming’s community and economic development agency. The UW Extension Community Development Education team empowers organizations, enterprises and individuals by providing them with the skills they need to affect change in their communities. We are a collaborative team who share an interest in the success and prosperity of Wyoming communities.

A community review is a strategic planning process designed and conducted in coordination with leaders, business owners and residents in your community. The centerpiece of the program is a one- to three-day visit to your community by a team of community and economic development professionals. The members of this “visiting team” volunteer their time and talents to support your community in developing a plan to manage change and pursue your goals on your terms.

The process provides your community with increased clarity about its goals and opportunities, improved coordination among individuals and organizations, a substantial in-kind contribution to support future grant applications and increased awareness of available funding and other resources. Additional information about the review process and the benefits to your community are found in the application packet.

Opportunities to participate in the Community Review Program are limited. The goal of the Community Review Program is to provide two community reviews per year. Applications are due Oct. 30.

Please review the attached application packet, then contact your Wyoming Business Council regional director to express your interest in applying or to ask any questions you may have.
