Stafford County Economic Development (EcoDevo) strives to achieve local economic growth by supporting businesses & industry, fostering employment opportunities, improving housing, and cultivating amenities that improve quality of life and encourage population growth. EcoDevo is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and this designation has allowed the organization to pursue grant funding, leverage resources, and invest in our communities.

Affordable housing is available for $250/month; this is a private room in a house or apartment that is fully furnished shared by other VISTAs or interns. St. John has a new grocery store, a coworking space, and a lovely town square among other things. Additionally, Stafford County boasts a movie theater, roller skating rink, a dozen restaurants, workout facilities, outdoor pools, an indoor pool, community festivals, Quivira National Wildlife Refuge, and more.
