Jill Seyfarth, a former planner with La Plata County and Durango, is joining the Region 9 Economic Development District as a part-time economic development planner.
Through her business Cultural Resource Planning, Seyfarth has worked on community development related projects for public and private sectors in Southwestern Colorado. She recently completed two terms on the Colorado State Historic Preservation Board, which reviews nominations to the State and National Registers of Historic Places, and she currently sits on the Technical Advisory Committee for the Colorado State Historic Fund.
Laura Lewis Marchino, executive director of Region 9, said, “We think Jill will be able to walk in and get to work. She is already familiar with Region 9 and the CEDS process and I am thrilled to have someone of her experience.”
Seyfarth will manage projects, data reports, publications, including District’s Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy as well as grant applications.
“I’m excited to be working on projects throughout the Region 9 area. Southwest Colorado is such a dynamic place and there are so many opportunities here,” said Seyfarth.
Region 9 works to improve economic conditions in La Plata, Archuleta, Montezuma, Dolores and San Juan counties. Seyfarth can be reached at email@example.com or by calling Region 9 at 970-247-9621.
