It’s official! We’ve declared Economic Development Week in Flagstaff County. Thanks to our elected officials for recognizing the value of the profession.

Economic Development Week was created by the International Economic Development Council (IEDC) in 2016 to increase awareness of local programs that create jobs, advance career development opportunities, and improve communities' quality of life.

Our Economic Development department focuses on regional priorities and tactics to stabilize the population with investment attraction, business retention, entrepreneurship, and signature tourism development. Strategic priorities identified in our five-year economic and community development strategic plan are:

1. Business Retention and Expansion

2. Attraction and Retention of Citizens

3. New Business Start-ups

4. New Business Investment

5. Economic Development as a Supportive Team Member
