Regional Economic Strategy

Amazing Place is the region's strategy to sustain economic vitality and global competitiveness.

Amazing Place: Growing jobs and opportunity in the central Puget Sound region

Amazing Place is a data driven regional economic strategy that identifies leading sectors and the ways the region intends to sustain economic development. 

The strategy has three big goals: open economic opportunities to everyone; compete globally; and sustain a high quality of life.  Each goal is supported by specific strategies and initiatives to sustain and grow jobs throughout the region, for all residents.

The strategy emphasizes traditional economic development priorities such as transportation, education, international trade and the region’s business climate. Newer emphasis areas include a specific rural strategy, initiatives to grow jobs throughout the region, advancing social equity and affordable housing.

PSRC’s Economic Development Board is leading the implementation of the new strategy.
