August 02, 2018

The Region 9 Economic Development District of Southwest Colorado (Region 9) is moving to the Durango Tech Center after successfully purchasing office space.

“Region 9 has been renting office space since our inception almost 30 years ago”, said Laura Lewis Marchino, Region 9’s Executive Director. “Since we work hard to help area businesses attain sustainability, it seemed important to look to our future as well.”

Region 9 will be closed Friday, August 17th through Tuesday, August 22nd to move and will have no phone or computer service during that time.

Region 9 is a nonprofit corporation led by a 26-member board of directors that provides lending capital for start-up businesses, businesses needing smaller amounts or those that have a funding gap with their local Bank. Region 9 also administers the Enterprise Zone Tax credit program, provides socio-economic data, and provides a variety of technical assistance to support economic development goals and priorities.

Office hours will be Mondays through Fridays from 8am to 5pm and the new address will be 135 Burnett Drive, Unit 1, Durango, CO 81301. Their phone number, emails remain the same. You can learn more about Region 9 programs on their website
