Economic Development Planning

Information
BPS’s Economic Development Planning Program supports economic equity, land use planning for business districts, economic development policy, and economic research for bureau projects. 

A healthy economy provides opportunities for people to achieve their full potential and is the foundation of a livable city. A healthy economy supports the creation of living wage jobs for our growing and increasingly diverse population; supports a growing tax base for public services; and, improves health and educational outcomes.
