In 2001, the City of Washburn engaged in a community planning process to develop a strategic plan. The Strategic Plan called for more active economic development of the Washburn Area. The Washburn Economic Development Organization was recreated as the Washburn Area Economic Development Association (WAEDA), which currently conducts economic development activities. This includes, but is not limited to the following:

  • Growing and retaining existing businesses
  • Identifying new business opportunities
  • Supporting residential and commercial development
  • Promoting community quality of life
