Salina Community Economic Development Organization
The new Salina Community Economic Development Organization officially formed in January 2016. Four organizations, the City of Salina, Saline County, Salina Airport Authority and the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce, worked together to create this new organization with the goals of increasing efficiencies in marketing and attracting new business and industry to Saline County, Kansas. The SCEDO is a private and public, collaboratively-funded organization and provides services in the areas of new business attraction, retail development, organizational capacity, research and planning and facility development. A nine-member economic development board made up of individuals representing the four partner organizations serves as the governing body for the SCEDO and helps determine the direction of the organization.
The Salina Community Economic Development Organization firmly supports the principle and philosophy of equal opportunity for all individuals, regardless of age, race, gender, creed, national origin, disability, veteran status or any other protected category pursuant to applicable federal, state or local law.
