  • Manitou wants to better promote biz interests.

A study recommending the consolidation of the Manitou Springs Chamber of Commerce and the Manitou Springs Economic Development Council was presented to the Manitou Springs City Council last night.

The study recommends the merger for the economic reasons, as well as for accountability and efficiency. Council gave an initial nod to the merger; a taskforce will be formed to iron out the details. It remains to be seen whether the boards of the independent Chamber and EDC will agree to the next phase, though it looks promising.

"This is a very promising new direction for these organizations to better serve the business and economic development interests of Manitou Springs, and that benefits all of us," says Manitou Mayor Pro Tem Aimee Cox. "This will provide a consistent vision and plan for future decision-making."
