Mission Statement:
To identify needs and opportunities, and develop plans of action to cause an improved quality of life for the residents of Bonham.

The Bonham Economic Development Corporation, BEDCO is a Type B (formerly 4B) Corporation, that works to foster the creation of a favorable climate for new and improved job opportunities by encouraging the development of business, industry and commerce. BEDCO is committed to offering new businesses a foundation of economic growth with small town charm which, along with its quality of life, makes this a community of opportunity.

The City of Bonham is in the midst of an exciting time of growth and of reclaiming our history. We were designated a Texas Main Street community in 1995 by the State of Texas. The results can be seen in the numerous restored building downtown.
