Through a partnership with the Appalachian Regional Commission, UACED began collaboration with various economic development entities in western Alabama made up of the following counties: Bibb, Fayette, Greene, Hale, Lamar, Pickens and Tuscaloosa. Through this project, strategic assets for local economies will be developed and strengthened with a goal to increase the level of domestic and international visitation to west Alabama. We create economic impact in the region by promoting the value of the region’s assets from within. This will not only improve the local economy, but also foster opportunities for expanding economic development throughout the region.
UACED provided the framework needed to connect the regional partners to work on tourism projects on a multi-county level while providing a strong core for future growth. With continued development in organization and planning, the region will build a sustainable economic initiative that will attract travelers and build economic expansion and support for the region.
