Working with La Plata County’s local, independent business community to create an economy that values people, planet, & prosperity for everyone!
Thank you to our Founding Members!
As a small business owner you may feel like you’re on this journey alone. Competing with online retailers, big box stores, and high rent prices can be overwhelming.
WE STAND WITH YOU.
Meet our membership of local, independent business owners and learn more about the work & dedication of Local First.
LOCAL STARTS WITH YOU!

LET US BE YOUR VOICE
As a nonprofit business alliance, we serve as the voice of the local, independent business community.
We advocate for you on the issues that you care about, whether that’s having a greater choice in local energy generation, informing you on increased sales taxes, or creating events around shopping and eating local. We show up for the meetings you can’t so that you can spend more time running your business.
