Appendix A Glossary
The economic development element links land use and development to economic growth, jobs and income, and municipal revenues and expenditures.
The primary issue that the economic development element addresses is balancing residential growth with economic growth to ensure a fiscally sustainable city. The goals and policies provide specific guidance for expanding the number and quality of jobs and for attracting private sector investment. Finally, the element’s policies seek to increase municipal revenues, especially sales and transient-occupancy taxes.
