Our Mission

Mission Statement

Expand and diversify the economic base of Lee County through comprehensive economic development by supporting existing businesses and encouraging new business recruitment.

​Vision Statement

The Sanford Area Growth Alliance is a leading advocate of an attractive, prosperous and engaged community.

Our History

The Sanford Area Growth Alliance is a public-private partnership and merger of the Lee County Economic Development Corporation (EDC) and Sanford Area Chamber of Commerce. This merger of these two organizations was a result of the need to broaden the economic development program of Lee County and capitalize on the synergies and strengths of each organization. The EDC historically has always focused on industrial recruitment, jobs and tax base. The Chamber has focused on small business development, advocacy and networking. Both organizations saw a need to form a comprehensive approach to economic development in order to better support long-term, sustainable growth.
