The Waller County Economic Development Partnership was incorporated in February of 2002, the result of several years of hard work by various community leaders. We are a Texas non-profit corporation. The primary purpose of the WCEDP is to facilitate positive growth within the Waller County area. This is expressed in our mission statement:
Specifically, the WCEDP works with existing business and those wanting to move into the county. Our services range from helping to create business plans to working with prospects moving into the area. As we continue to grow our services will also include support for economic development through GIS, web, and marketing collateral.
The organization is comprised of an appointed board of directors with members representing the county commissioners and county judge, each chamber of commerce, each local economic development group within the county, and Prairie View A&M University.
As a Texas non-profit corporation, our services are free. The WCEDP contracts with Waller County to provide economic development services to the community. We foster cooperation within the county by including all communities with an economic development program or that are interested in providing economic development services to their community.
In addition, private enterprise can join the WCEDP through Associate Memberships. Membership includes free access to all of our nonproprietary GIS information, project information, partner networking meetings, and annual public events. Trustee Memberships are also available. In addition to the associate level benefits, Trustee Members are featured on our web site and are given the option to serve on the board with the availability to serve on the executive board. We believe that effective economic development is a partnership between the public and private sectors. Contact us for details.
