"Mike Bordogna and the Lake County EDC proved to be a valuable resource to me during the process of re-locating my shop on Harrison Ave.  Mike’s knowledge of the business climate in Lake County, Leadville, and on Harrison Ave was critical in finding a new space and negotiating new lease terms.  I would encourage anyone to tap into this beneficial resource and support the Lake County EDC!"
