A Greater Applegate
The mission of A Greater Applegate is to build community by sustaining and enhancing local connections that promote the environmental, economic, and social vitality of the Applegate Valley. The non-profit organization formerly known as Greater Applegate Community Development Corporation (GACDC) is now doing business as A Greater Applegate.
A Greater Applegate’s new, broader focus builds upon the community engagement work GACDC initiated from fall 2016 to summer 2017 through the Applegate Economic Vitality Roadmap in collaboration with Rural Development Initiatives, which aligns with the original vision for GACDC more than two decades ago.
The Applegate Valley is defined by the Applegate River, which flows from its headwaters in the Siskiyou Mountains of Jackson County to its confluence with the Rogue River in Josephine County.
