HEDC History

HEDC was born from the Havenwoods Business Council in 2000.   Led by business owners with the common goal of strengthening our business community and the surrounding neighborhood.

Since 2000 HEDC has been a leader in the movement to revitalize Havenwoods. In January, 2002, we  adopted an new economic development mission, and new name, Havenwoods Economic Development Corporation.

Our evolution continued as we formed a nonprofit economic development corporation whose mission is to bring new investment into the Havenwoods community. In 2004 we established Business Improvement District #31 resulting in increased capacity to serve the Havenwoods community.
