Preparation of New Economic Development Strategy Kicks Off

On January 19, the Roseville City Council directed staff to begin preparation of a new Economic Development Strategy. Development of the strategy will be a collaborative effort guided by the Economic Development Advisory Committee, with outreach to the business community, non-profits, residents and other business-serving organizations. Input collected through this outreach will help shape the vision for Roseville’s economy. This vision will not be about continuing what is already here, but rather will be a bold new direction to take Roseville’s economy to the next level.

Input from the community will also help to develop the goals, strategies and specific tasks to achieve that vision. The process will take several months, and a draft strategy will be taken to Council for their review in June.

The Economic Development Strategy is the City’s road map for growing Roseville’s economy. The Strategy will include specific tasks that address increasing job opportunities, filling vacant commercial space, strengthening existing businesses, ensuring Roseville is known as a community that is “open for business” and bringing amenities such as higher education to Roseville to further bolster the City’s economy. Key to the success of the strategy will be partnerships. By developing new partnerships and strengthening existing ones, the Roseville community will have more resources and momentum to achieve the new bold vision for Roseville’s economy.

If you are interested in participating in the development of the Economic Development Strategy and being part of Roseville’s new economic vision, check the City’s ED Strategy web page for meeting times and other information. Survey opportunities will be available soon, but input is always welcome. For more information, contact Economic Development at 916-774-5362.
