REDMOND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- The city of Redmond is currently conducting an update to its Economic Opportunities Analysis, which analyzes community economic patterns, potentialities, strengths and deficiencies as they related to state and national economic trends.
The EOA is a state requirement, which will be incorporated into the city’s Comprehensive Plan 2040, helps identify avenues to better plan for industrial and commercial development.
The city of Redmond is seeking citizen comment on the EOA through an online public survey. The feedback will help update the EOA to determine how to best prepare for and manage the community’s economic development needs.
