HEDC was born from the Havenwoods Business Council in 2000, a group of business owners with the common goal of strengthening our business community and the surrounding neighborhood.
Since 2000 our group continued to grow to become leaders in the movement to revitalize Havenwoods. In January, 2002, we had evolved to have a more economic mission, and adopted a 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.
After fulfilling our strategic plan goals of 2003, we launched a new strategic plan in 2009 to identify objectives to continue to improve the Havenwoods community.
