Economic Development

Welcome to Sheldon Economic Development!

Sheldon is a growing community with an emphasis on family, manufacturing/ industrial, education and communications. Sheldon is a community on the rise with a lot to offer. From unique businesses for shopping, to outstanding recreation facilities, top-notch education (public, private K-12 & our Community College) to our wide base of industrial opportunities, Sheldon has it all. We are adding new additions to our growing need of housing, and adding on a major wing to Northwest Iowa Health Center. This is just barely touching on all the new and exciting projects that make Sheldon a community like no other.
