Economic Development Strategy

The city's Economic Development Strategy outlines a work plan that the city can undertake to strengthen and diversify its economy. The first strategy, approved in 1999, was very successful with the city achieving many of the goals set forth in that plan. The updated strategy, completed in 2011, provides a multifaceted approach to business retention and attraction by:

  • Adding more diversity to the economy
  • Assisting the existing retail base to adapt to the current marketplace
  • Marketing Citrus Heights' desirable residential and business qualities
  • Nurturing local small-businesses especially home-based businesses
