Economic development

Our objective for economic development is to become an increasingly successful, economically viable, and dynamic community where existing and potential employers and employees want to be.

Through the Official Community Plan, we are creating and enhancing economic opportunity through land use policies that encourage new investment, quality jobs, and growing the business tax base. Our Economic Development Strategy, currently under development, will become the blueprint for achieving our long-time economic vision.

We are a community that is open for business and provide a range of data, services, and supports to businesses looking to set up or grow in the District.
