Economic Development

The Economic Development Division promotes investments in the City and helps secure quality goods and services for local residents and businesses. Specific goals are to provide retail opportunities to meet the needs of our citizens, promote research activities, create diverse job opportunities, and to assist in the fiscal stability of the city.

Business Outreach and Support
Maintaining a healthy business environment for the City of Soledad is our priority. We recognize that a healthy business sector provides the resources necessary to sustain jobs and services for our citizens. Business retention and expansion programs are successfully being implemented to improve the City's revenue base, create jobs for residents, and provide for the overall well being of the Soledad business community.

Encouraging an ongoing dialogue with businesses and building relationships with business leaders are critical factors for business retention. To that end, the City's Economic Development Division sponsors or conducts a number of business outreach programs that offer new and established businesses alike, education and emerging business trends and opportunities.

What is Economic Development?
Economic Development refers to policies and programs to help increase the community's economic activity in order to create more and better jobs, and to provide greater choice and competitive prices for goods and services. A healthy economy also increases revenues to the local government through more property tax and through additional sales tax, which equates to financial re-investment in city services and our business community.
