Building a resilient economy

Economic Development Liaison

In May 2022 West Center was named as the Economic Development Liaison for Mendocino County. West Center is contracted to provide services in three strategic areas:

  • Economic development capacity
  • Business recruitment and retention
  • Workforce development

The scope of work includes key actions that support implementation of the County’s strategic plan by collaborating with economic development partners to identify areas where the County can support business attraction, development, and expansion and implementing policies and practices to make it easier for businesses to start up and expand.
