It's a new tool for attracting business to Central Oregon. Economic Development for Central Oregon (EDCO) is announcing the release of four annual business publications. They are “The Central Oregon Profile" which covers the tri-county area, the "Redmond Profile", "Crook County Profile" and "Jefferson County Profile." EDCO Executive Director Roger Lee says they provide a good statistical snapshot of our region and are important to local non-profits, businesses and government agencies. EDCO changed the profiles this year to include expanded business information, additional narrative to explain business dynamics, and more easy-to-read charts and graphs. Profile publications are available as free .pdf downloads on EDCO’s website.
