The City of Kenmore is in the process of updating the Economic Development Strategy.

The City of Kenmore’s first Economic Development Strategy was adopted in 2009.

In the years since, progress has been made using strategies centered around promoting Kenmore’s image, downtown redevelopment, connecting to the waterfront and business retention and expansion.

Kenmore intends to update the strategy with new market information and a new work program to help foster economic growth.

The City of Kenmore is updating the Economic Development Strategy and is working with Community Attributes Inc., a Seattle-based land use and economic development consulting firm, to lead the effort. The updated economic development strategy will be rooted in current market and industry dynamics to understand business and commercial growth capacities.

Community Attributes Inc. and the City of Kenmore are encouraging locals to share their ideas regarding Kenmore’s future economic development and ways to bolster business investment. The comments collected through the website below, along with other outreach, will be used to identify project goals and strategies for future economic development initiatives.
