Greater St. Joe Development Foundation, Inc.
The Greater St. Joe Development Foundation was formed I n1989 to assist the communities of Benewah County in their efforts to promote the growth and retention of business and industry, and to enhance the quality of life for our residents. We accomplish this mission through aggressive marketing of our assets and facilitating cooperation between state agencies and the communities.
The St. Joe River Valley area is a recreation and tourism wonderland. We are the gateway for the St. Joe National forest, where recreational opportunities abound in hiking, biking, blue ribbon trout streams and home to the St. Joe River Scenic Byway.
With the cheap Pacific Northwest electrical rates and an abundant supply of water for recreation, home and industry expansion, the valley has what it takes to continue to grow for many years to come.
Transportation continues to improve with highway 95 completing its 3rd phase this year which reduces the travel time to Spokane and the Coeur d Alene area.
You are invited to explore and learn more about Benewah County and see why the St. Joe Valley is an outstanding location for you, your family, and your business.
