I am the new Bates County Economic Developer and was hired November 2, 2015. Bates County is located in western Missouri, about an hour south of Kansas City. With the addition of Interstate 49 running north to south through the county, we have already seen growth and are expecting continued growth in the future. I am hoping this blog will keep everybody updated on what is happening throughout Bates County and specifically what exciting projects are in the works!
I hope you enjoy!
