Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is LEDA?
LEDA stands for the Lander Economic Development Association and is composed of 13 community members from diverse backgrounds and encompassing a broad spectrum of expertise. Our mission is to spur economic development and we try to achieve this goal by facilitating a business friendly environment primarily through infrastructure projects and thereby enhancing business opportunities in our community.
We are all committed community members who support our local businesses, and welcome new businesses because we love living here and want Lander to grow sustainably into the future.
We are looking to the future to promote new under-represented businesses and innovative clean industries that will create the jobs of tomorrow and give critical support to currently existing industries, which are driving Lander today.
LEDA focuses on community relevant projects, which will build 21st century infrastructure for sustainable future growth. For example, we are leading the task force to bring twice daily jet service to Riverton Regional Airport to increase air service capacity and have worked with national telecommunication companies to install redundant fiberoptic lines, which will provide the necessary infrastructure for tech company relocation as well as promote competitive pricing for internet services for pre-existing businesses.
