How can City economic
development help you?
Every two years, the
community's top budget priorities are identified through a
robust public participation process. After hearing from the
public at the Community Forum, via the Community Budget Bulletin
Survey, and through its advisory bodies, the City Council
identifies the Major City Goals for the upcoming two-year
financial planning period, beginning July 1, 2011.
Many business owners participated
in the January 11th Community Forum. Representatives of the
business community emphasized a desire for the City to expand
economic development efforts. With this input in mind, Council
Economic Development as one of the highest priority goals
for the 2011-13 Financial Plan.
Now we are in
the process of developing a work program for the Economic
Development Major City Goal, and your input is welcome.

the City can help companies grow and produce jobs, please
