A Message From AEDF

Dear Members of the Community:

On behalf of Algiers Economic Development Foundation, we would like to take a moment to say thank you for your ongoing support.  Our work is critical to the economic vitality of the community.  Albeit our focus is business retention, expansion and attraction, we are pivoting to focus more on blight remediation.  Blight does more than minimize the attraction of new businesses… its a deterrent to home owners and it also attracts crime.

Albeit change is imminent, the crux of the AEDF mission will always remain, “To build a sustainable, business friendly environment that grows investments and jobs on the Westbank”.

As maneuver through 2019, we welcome your thoughts and look forward to seeing you around the community.  Collectively through partnerships and collaborations we can and will make Algiers the best community to live, work and play in the metro region.

In Service,
D. O’Brien Martin, Executive Director
