MONTROSE, Colo. (July 1, 2019) – “At Colorado Outdoors, we’re dedicated to promoting sustainable, economic development and employment in Colorado,” said Dragoo. “I’m honored to be appointed to the Colorado Economic Development Commission and thrilled to work with an incredible team that is committed to growing businesses across the state.”
David Dragoo has served as President of Colorado Outdoors since 2016 and has worked to transform Montrose into a compelling destination for families and businesses alike. The Colorado Outdoors development draws new expertise to the growing region and is a desirable home for business catering to the outdoor recreation industry. In June 2019, Mayfly Outdoors, the parent company of high-performance fly fishing tackle brands Abel and Ross Reels, completed construction and moved into a 41,000-square-foot facility. Mayfly was the first to break ground on the 164-acre Colorado Outdoors development and serves as its anchor tenant. Both Mayfly and Colorado Outdoors have made great progress in the revitalization of the Uncompahgre River corridor, including a three-year river restoration project and a property donation of over nearly 1.5 miles of riverfront land back to the community.
