Founded in 1914, the Sedro-Woolley Chamber of Commerce hosted social gatherings as well as working for a healthy business climate for its members. Today’s Chamber goals are much the same. The Sedro-Woolley Chamber of Commerce works hard to fulfill its Mission: “Partnering with the community to promote business,” and our Vision: “Establish partnerships and communication with the City, Businesses, and the Community.”
Membership includes retailers, wholesalers, service industries, manufacturers, industrial parks, banks, churches, nonprofit organizations and individuals.
Luncheon meetings are held the first Wednesday of every month and are generally held at the Sedro-Woolley Community Center from 11:30AM to 1:00PM. Any changes are announced in the monthly newsletter. The newsletter is the chamber’s source for current information; upcoming events and a watchful eye on current issues affecting our community and businesses. The newsletter is included with every Membership. Ifyou want more information about the Chamber, please call the number above or attend a chamber meeting – visitors are always welcome.
We have a rich history in Sedro-Woolley based on the can-do spirit brought by hard working men and women as they forged their way in the great forests of this valley called Skagit. This tradition of hard work and community was well documented by world renowned photographer Darius Kinsey who based his photography studio right here in S-W in the early part of the 20th Century. Many of his works are on display throughout town and also at the Sedro-Woolley Museum.
The current hottest news in Sedro-Woolley is about the Janicki Bio-Energy project.
The City of Sedro-Woolley, Port of Skagit County and Skagit County have been diligently working with the State of Washington to identify economic development opportunities for the redevelopment of the Northern State Hospital site located in Eastern Skagit County.
“At this time, Janicki BioEnergy proposes to locate a biotechnology center on the Northern State Hospital site to support development, manufacturing, and marketing of a new and innovative sewage treatment system designed for use in developing countries.
The Janicki BioEnergy proposal has the potential to create 1,000 living wage jobs in Skagit County in a manner that would complement the Northern State Hospital campus character, history and environment, and would preserve open space and enhance public access opportunities.
The proposed biotechnology center constitutes the most significant economic development project in recent Skagit County history.
Locating the proposed Janicki Manufacturing and Biotechnical Research Facility at the Northern State Hospital site has the potential to establish Skagit County as a world leader in public health technological research and development.
TheSedro-Woolley Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has endorsed the property transfer and the use of the property as the proposed location of Janicki BioEnergy. For more information
