PUEBLO — The Pueblo Business Economic Recovery Team, or BERT, has started the One Pueblo Project, a project aimed at helping Pueblo rebound from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Some of the goals for the project include attracting and keeping skilled workers and helping existing businesses grow.

"Part of that is in recognition of the COVID crisis and what happened in some of the bigger markets. People started saying, 'I want to get our of those bigger markets I want to go where there is quality of life'," Jeff Shaw with the Pueblo Economic Development Corporation said.

BERT is made up of different entities in Pueblo, including local government, different Chamber of Commerce groups, and businesses.
