The Levelland Economic Development Corporation received a Gold Excellence in Economic Development Award for its 2014 project, Levelland Industrial Rail Park Development, in the category of Multi-Year Economic Development for communities with populations of less than 25,000 from the International Economic Development Council.
The honor was presented at an awards ceremony Oct. 20 during the IEDC’s Annual Conference in Fort Worth.
‘Economic development efforts have long been a keystone in the quest to bolster the economy and improve quality of life in every locality across the country,’ said Bill Sproull, IEDC chair. ‘As the nation continues to tackle challenges in the midst of global uncertainty, these efforts have taken on an even greater significance. With this award, we laud trendsetting organizations like Levelland Economic Development Corporation for leading the charge.’
