As part of our commitment to the Methow Valley, we launched a Comprehensive Economy Study in September 2019. Over the last year and a half, we have launched three community surveys, hosted five community events, and gathered data on every sector of the Methow Valley’s economy. This spring, we are excited to announce that the study is coming to a close. Overall, over 1,100 residents participated in the three surveys and events, generating hundreds of comments and data points on the main influences of our economy like tourism, second homeowners and remote workers, as well as the building industry and our business community.
The results of the study will be disseminated online as well as in a five-week series hosted by the Methow Conservancy and TwispWorks on the state of the Methow Valley in September 2021. Stay tuned for more information on the study!
