The town of Silverton was selected in August as one of four Colorado communities to be designated as a Blueprint 2.0 Certified Small Business Community.
The recognition will be used to, in partnership with the Small Business Development Center at Fort Lewis College, develop a shared work space in the Grand Imperial Hotel. The location will provide business consulting, training and education.
Melanie Russek, coordinator for the San Juan Development Association, will oversee the grant, which is renewable for up to three years.
