Laughlin Economic Development Corporation


The Laughlin Economic Development Corporation is a 501(C)3 non-profit whose mission/vision is to attract -- and keep growing -- businesses, industries, and housing providers that Laughlin needs, and for which we know our existing residents and visitors can support, in our collaborative venture between civic and business leaders in Laughlin to promote the improvement of the health, welfare, and quality of life for our residents and visitors through steady, sustainable, economic growth as we add to our economic bases of retirement living and gambling-based tourism.


The LEDC utilizes information on community assets, gathering facts both internally and externally, in our assessment process. We conduct surveys and  business interviews, analyze tax records, and add decades of personal experiences in our assessment of projects that will promote development to improve the health, welfare, and quality of life for Laughlin residents and visitors.


Members of the LEDC have decades of consulting, business ownership, and operations/management experience in the town of Laughlin in southern Clark County. We utilize our experience and information gathered in the assessment process to understand community needs and the direction of our partners strategic investments. Thus we plan feasible goals in line with the mission/vision of LEDC and our partners, especially for businesses and industries not now available in Laughlin.


The LEDC can assist in getting your investment moving faster through utilizing our community network that spans well beyond the borders of the township. Our experienced members will make your development process fow efficiently with the lowest possible cost to your organization. At various stages, the process may require stakeholders from different financial institutions, other appropriate companies, government agencies and regulators.


Once the LEDC assesses and plans community opportunities, we oversee the implementation of the initiative or strategic investment  with consulting, connecting you to funding sources, and/or communicating with relevant stakeholders including property owners, business management, county, state, and federal agencies, and most importantly Laughlin residents.
