Woodinville Economic Development Strategic Action Plan

Woodinville Economic Development Technical Annex (201 pages)

North King County Economic Survey

The phrase "economic development" holds multiple individual meanings to a citizen, property owner, and/or business manager. Quality of life, business recruitment and retention, tourism, family wage jobs, retail, manufacturing, and international trade may be some of the thoughts people have about economic development. Defining and understanding what the local economy and economic development truly mean for the City of Woodinville is a high priority. This effort can lead to development strategies, public policy decisions and public infrastructure investments that play a key role in shaping the type and quality of commercial development in Woodinville. The City has several economic development initiatives to keep Woodinville a vital and vibrant city.

Economic Development Plan
In 2005, a Task Force comprised of Planning Commissioners, Chamber of Commerce members and citizens looked at ways to best leverage Woodinville's identity as a premier tourist district destination. Their efforts, with assistance from Berk & Associates, a consulting firm, resulted in a draft Economic Development Strategic Action Plan.

In 2007, the Planning Commission completed a final review of the Economic Development Strategic Action Plan and recommended the Plan to the City Council for adoption. On February 5th, 2008, the Woodinville City Council approved Resolution No. 347 adopting the City's Economic Development Strategic Action Plan and authorized the formation of an advisory group to help prioritize recommendations contained in the Plan.

The goal of the Plan is to maintain and develop a viable, stable, healthy and diversified economy for Woodinville. The Plan sets other Economic Development goals and identifies "action items" to implement the Plan. A community advisory committee has been formed and will work with staff to refine costs and prioritize the action items.

Also in 2007, Woodinville and other cities participated in an economic growth study called the North King County Economic Report. The Study polled area businesses on areas such as; government services, current business climate, transportation/freight mobility-shipping logistics, workforce supply/education/development, area livability, and overall sustainability.
