Community Involvement

(603) 569-4216

Over the years WEDCO has partnered with many local groups and committees to help further their mission by acting as their fiscal agent, provide technical assistance, providing meeting space, etc.

Supporting these groups furthers WEDCO’s efforts of promoting economic growth in the region while protecting and enhancing its intrinsic benefits.

Cotton Valley Trail – Efforts to build the Cotton Valley Trail began in 1992. This recreational multi-use trail was completely in 2017. The trail extends 12 miles, linking the towns of Wolfeboro, Brookfield and Wakefield, via a former railroad right-of-way. An active committee of volunteers continues to make enhancements to the trail for its users.

Explore Moose Mountains is a grassroots, non-profit initiative to promote the  Moose Mountains Region of New Hampshire. It began in 2014 when a group of engaged citizens contacted Strafford Regional Planning Commission (SRPC) for technical assistance related to regional tourism. To date Explore Moose Mountains (EMM), has made significant strides, building upon the original ideas and goals from the initial visioning sessions and meetings. In 2016 EMM received a New Hampshire Charitable Foundations (NHCF) grant, which has supported recent operations, including the launching of its own website and the EMM Facebook page, @TheMooseNH and creation of marketing and promotional materials.

Eastern Lakes Region Housing Coalition (ELRHC) – The Eastern Lakes Region Housing Coalition Inc. was established as a non-profit corporation in 2005. The Board of Directors is composed of individuals representing community, business, health, construction, and education entities from the rural towns east of Lake Winnipesaukee. The mission of the Coalition is to improve access to affordable housing for everyone in our community.

The relationship between Eastern Lakes Region Housing Coalition, Inc., (ELRHC) and WEDCO has been a key component to ELRHC’s ability to successfully help develop affordable housing units in the Lakes Region area.

Since the relationship began in 2004, WEDCO has been instrumental in providing expert guidance, professional counsel, administrative support and facility space throughout the years and challenges faced by the Coalition. WEDCO’s extensive knowledge of the area which both organizations serve and WEDCO’s longstanding experience supporting local businesses are significant resources made readily available to ELRHC in support of our common goals.

The Coalition is very appreciative of access to WEDCO’s professional staff and ELRHC looks forward to future benefits from this critical partnership with WEDCO as our organizations strive to support the wellbeing of the local towns and residents we serve.
