Klickitat County Economic Development Plan Approved

Klickitat County’s ten-year economic development plan was approved by the County’s Economic Development Association.  A consultant, TIP Strategies, had been working on the plan for past eight months.  County Commission Chair Jim Sizemore, who is a part of the economic development group’s board, says the plan is robust and ambitious, and will require “a lot of work” from everyone involved in putting it together.  The plan divides the County into three areas.  It focuses on supporting and expanding the high-tech industry in the western part of the County, with an emphasis on developing affordable housing options.  The central part of the County targets clean technology, while the east end continues a move from dry-land to irrigated agriculture, in large part with the growth of vineyards in that area.
