Regional Economic Strategy

PSRC is developing a new Regional Economic Strategy to sustain the region’s economic vitality and global competitiveness.

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

The new economic strategy for the central Puget Sound region is being developed during a time of surging job and population growth. There’s no end in sight, just history to remind the region that it can’t take prosperity for granted. And there’s drive to better ensure more equitable access to opportunity – throughout the region – for all who reside in the region.

The strategy establishes a fresh framework for civic leadership to improve economic development, enhance innovation, and nurture a high quality of life throughout the region. Advancing educational opportunity, improving transportation, making the region more affordable and continuing to sustain a healthy environment are among the draft strategy’s key initiatives.

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