History

The Washington County Economic Development Council (WCEDC) was created in 2009 as a means to unite all of the separate economic development efforts that were going on in Washington County, Johnson City, and Jonesborough. The creation of the WCEDC brought the efforts of the Economic Development Board which focused primarily on industrial development, the Johnson City Development Authority (JCDA) which focused primarily on downtown Johnson City redevelopment, and the Public Building Authority (PBA) which focused on the development of Millennium Park, all under one roof and one set of staff. In January 2014, the WCEDC received official designation as the recognized economic development arm of the area under Tennessee’s 1101 Statue, a designation previously held by the Economic Development Board.
