NoCO's Unique Approach to
Economic Development

What’s unique about it? Our collaborative approach to business retention and attraction activity.  

The NoCO Business Retention and Expansion Partnership (NoCO BRE) and the Regional Economic Development Initiative (REDI) are a consortium of economic and workforce development professionals working together to support primary employers in northern Colorado.

        “We recognize that economic benefits in one community
        benefit all due to the interconnected nature of the
        regional economy. Working together allows for greater
        impact in the region.” -- Jacob Castillo, Larimer County
        Economic Development Manager 

The objective of this collaboration is to increase the region’s economic resilience and improve the business ecosystem. Not only has Larimer and Weld County approved the Northern Colorado Regional Economic Development Partnership MOU but the communities and chambers are meeting and collaborating on a regular basis to develop and implement business retention and attraction activity.

For more information about each of the consortium's, contact the Berthoud Business Development Department.

Is Your Business Taking Advantage of the Enterprise Zone Tax Credits?

Just about all of Berthoud has been designated as an Enterprise Zone (EZ), which means your company is most likely located in the Berthoud EZ.  So, if you are expanding, adding employees or equipment, buying commercial vehicles, providing employer sponsored health insurance, or conducting R&D then you should take advantage of the Colorado EZ tax credits.
