A Tradition of Innovation


Development Commission

The Marion County Development Commission promotes the county’s economic development, tourism and recreation opportunities. The commission, formed in the late ‘80s, is a department of county government whose 11 commissioners are appointed for three-year terms on a rotating basis by the Marion County Board of Supervisors.

The Marion County Development Commission leads and is active in a number of programs that promote and develop Marion County as a quality destination to live, work and visit. From Leadership Red Rock and other business programs to our Iowa State Fair Booth and extensive travel guide, the Marion County Development Commission actively supports the county’s success.
