KCDC relaunches website, solicits feedback

Residents can have projects evaluated

Express Staff Writer

The Ketchum Community Development Corp. has a new website and with it, a new initiative.

The enhanced site features a section for the public to suggest what projects the entity should pursue.

"There's an online forum where people can send in their ideas for projects," said public relations consultant Whitney Werth, who is working with the organization. "We'll be evaluating those ideas to see what we should do next."

The Community Development Corp. is looking for input from residents, both full- and part-time, and is hoping their ideas will prompt their further involvement.

To have a project evaluated and potentially executed, log on to and click on the light bulb labeled "idea." Submit a description of the project, the benefits it would provide to the community and how it would fit with the organization's mission of enhancing the community and quality of life to foster economic, cultural and environmental sustainability.


Other required information is the estimated duration of the project, the resources needed, such as volunteers, professional services and funding, and how much experience in project management participants have.

"We're looking at this as a way to not only keep Ketchum informed about what we're doing, but to continue expanding community-wide involvement and participation in our projects and those that are generated by residents and part-time homeowners," Executive Director Jon Duval said.
