Service Area and Focus

Eclogiselle aims to serve the Pacific Coastal Region of Washington State as its core focus, followed by the Pacific Northwest and the Western United States.

Eclogiselle provides digital, technical and informational resources for community planning and economic development work for small communities. It is aimed at incorporated small towns, unincorporated areas, local business people and other concerned parties in small communities and rural areas.

Small communities typically have very limited resources. One of their biggest limiters is a lack of local talent. There may be no one locally with solid skills in areas like map work and website work.

This creates a digital divide between big cities and small communities. This deepens the problems faced by small communities trying to do planning and economic development.

Eclogiselle aims to help close the digital divide for people in small communities trying to do development work. It is intended to be a compendium of technical, planning and economic development resources and services that fit certain parameters, including:
  • Free or cheap.
  • Professional quality.
  • User friendly.
