ACDC was organized in the 1970s as a volunteer board.  Since 1995, ACDC has been supported by a 1/4 cent county sales tax that provides an office and staff fully devoted to economic development activities. ACDC works to improve the local business climate by assisting entrepreneurial companies, responding to leads and inquiries, and developing incentives for doing business in Atchison County. Additionally, ACDC supports community organizations and collaborates with county, regional and state groups to better the county. Over the years, ACDC has been involved in:

  • Water infrastructure programs-such as the lift station at Community Hospital-Fairfax
  • GIS mapping of water, sewer and utilities throughout the county
  • Business infrastructure improvements such as moving utilities for Dollar General
  • Community renewal and revitalization projects
  • Providing funding for a feasibility study to establish the Atchison County Wholesale Water Commission
  • Establishing incentives like the Enhanced Enterprise Zone (EEZ) and Tax Increment Financing (TIF).

The Mission of ACDC is to initiate, stimulate and facilitate opportunity in Atchison County through economic and community development.
