GARDEN VALLEY JOB CREATION/RETENTION COUNCIL
STRATEGIC “GAME PLAN” MEETING

While the Chamber and its council will implement the plan when
it is complete, input from all citizens is requested. The council needs
to be sure all interests are included in the plan. A second meeting
reviewing the results of the plan will be held in February in time to
complete it. The plan will then become the foundation for inclusion
in the updated Southwestern Idaho Comprehensive Economic
Development Strategy update necessary for grant applications.
All are invited. Please RSVP to the Garden Valley Chamber at
208-462-5003. We need your name, phone number and email
address so we can plan properly and contact everyone regarding
