Potential Projects

The following projects have been identified as being relevant and viable in JCC. They are also consistent with other County attributes or missions of existing organizations. Those organizations could serve as partners with other public or private entities, or could take the lead on implementation. It is not the intention that the County or REDC necessarily fund or be entirely responsible for action on these projects, but rather the REDC will encourage private, public, not for profit or a combination of entities that could merge these projects into their individual strategies.
