In addition to traditional business ventures and financial expansion opportunities, the PCEDA works to bolster the economic resilience of our communities. We help to grow Perry County’s arts and cultural programs, historical sites, such as our quilt barn and covered bridge trails. Our recreational activities are plentiful due to our state parks and forests, game lands and the Appalachian Trail. We also boast two gorgeous rivers that offer great canoeing, kayaking, fishing and adventure opportunities.
In Perry County, we are spoiled by the high quality of local goods and produce with small and large family farms that offer fresh produce, wines, beers, ciders, small-batch ice cream, cured meats and cheeses.
Our goal is to improve the local economy by facilitating a business-ready climate in our county supported by a strong quality of life. Preemptively finding solutions to potential issues in our economy is what makes us a strong resource for local businesses.
We are always cultivating new answers to the following questions:
- What do our agricultural businesses need to succeed in an increasingly difficult industry?
- How do we cultivate the next generation of business leaders?
- What do we need to do today to excel in the future?
