Reports and Strategies

Butte County Regional Economic Development Strategy

Recognizing the importance of economic development, in 2011 the Butte County Board of Supervisors adopted the 2011-2014 Butte County Regional Economic Development Strategy. The 2014-2017 and 2017-2020 revisions of the Strategy built on the success of the action items contained in the original strategy and incorporated expanded opportunities for special projects, while maintaining the original goals of:

  • growing existing businesses,
  • ensuring Butte County is a competitive location for new investment,
  • creating a sustainable, business friendly reputation for the County, and
  • improving the coordination of regional economic development resources and efforts.

The Strategy details the three initiatives that will continue to guide economic development process and program decisions through the year 2020. Under each initiative are listed projects or programs to be accomplished in support of that initiative.
