Center for Economic Vitality at WWU to shut down

A longtime local business development organization is ceasing operations at the end of the year.

The Center for Economic Vitality, operated through Western Washington University, will cease operations on Dec. 31. The CEV is no longer financially feasible to operate after sustaining significant local and state funding cutbacks, said Brian Burton, dean to Western's College of Business and Economics.
