The Economic Development Council of South Miami-Dade (EDC), originally called the Perrine-Cutler Ridge Council was formed in 1993 soon after Hurricane Andrew devastated the southern portion of our county. Community leaders and local business owners began working together to bring a loud voice to our area in an effort to bring back its vital economy.
Today, the EDC’s purpose is to identify the economic needs of the communities we serve for improved quality of life. The Council works with Private, Municipal, County, State and Federal agencies to assist in acquiring timely funding for the economic development efforts in the community. Further, the EDC is relied upon by its communities as a vital link to our government officials and their offices to voice critical needs, quality of life issues and future economic development opportunities in our communities.
South Dade is an ideal locale for business interests with available land zoned for commercial development, affordably-priced housing, excellent healthcare facilities, good public/private schools and numerous institutions of higher learning.Read More
