Custer Community Engages in Conversation on Economic Development

December 11, 2016

Custer, SD – The Custer Economic Development Corporation, Custer Chamber of Commerce and the City of Custer invited area citizenry to participate in a conversation to energize a stagnant local economy in the Pine Room at the Custer County Annex December 9, 2016.

Kristi Wagner, a professional connector and senior community coach for Dakota Resources did a masterful job getting the meeting into high gear after a brief Powerpoint presentation by The Custer Economic Development Corporation.

A standing room only crowd became fully engaged with the process. Breaking into groups at tables, suggesting solutions to issues and having possible solutions posted from each group to prioritize later group conversations.

There will be a follow-up public meeting the second week in January 2017 with particulars to be announced.
