The Fresno County RMDZ works directly with the Fresno County Economic Development Corporation (EDC). Resources for the EDC can be found at: http://www.fresnoedc.com/ The cities of Fowler, Parlier, Reedley, Sanger, and Selma have formed a joint powers authority, the Five Cities Economic Development Authority on the east side of Fresno County. The purpose of the authority is to work collaboratively and cooperatively to expand each city's local economy through job creation and economic development, incorporating essential agencies. By pooling these resources, there are more opportunities for development with a variety of industrial sites and land available.
