Strategic Economic Initiative

Blaine City Council initiated the Strategic Economic Initiative to develop a detailed action plan for improving economic development prospects in Blaine based on work that has been done by numerous City task forces and committees. The Strategic Economic Initiate will refine and resolve projects, costs, and financing strategies for improving economic development initiatives, parks, trails, downtown beautification, sidewalks, traffic signals, roads, and public facilities. Included below is the link to Visitor survey, audio recordings, presentations, and other material that are relevant towards the Initiative.
