Through collaborative leadership we supplied a pipeline of $812 million in new capital investment projects to strengthen and diversify the assets in Iowa. But beyond big number private-sector prospects we also work with the progressive small businesses, nonprofits, civic leaders, workforce, education institutions, utilities, transportation, housing, etc to maximize productivity and long-term prosperity in our evolving economic landscape.

Thank you for making Tama County a Great Place, Pat

It is with a heavy heart that we share with you that Patricia L. Veit, Chelsea, died on September 29, 2010 after battling cancer.
In February 2010 we celebrated a decade of contributions Pat made to Tama County’s economic vitality as a Chelsea representative on the Tama County Economic Development Commission. A founding Commissioner, she was one of the three longest-serving leaders seeing the organization through its evolution in serving the greater good. She was furthermore a founding board member of the Tama County Community Foundation, supporting in making over half a million dollars available to our small towns to enhance the quality of our lives.
Her accomplishments in historic preservation were also recognized on a national level. When Chelsea’s Otter Creek Bridge on the Lincoln Highway was widened and strengthened, she advocated for maintaining the historic integrity through light fixtures and railings. The National Lincoln Highway Association noticed and praised the completed project:
[The] bridge will continue to reflect not just the charm of the old Lincoln Highway, but bring a new measure of safety for travelers as well.
This is the very essence of wise historical preservation”
