About Economic Development

Encouraging community revitalization and promoting economic opportunity for all segments of the population are key components in ensuring a high quality of life. It is essential to retain, attract and maintain the types of businesses that contribute positively to the local economy. The City leverages public incentives and assistance to promote community revitalization, attract new businesses and induce investment in local businesses.

The City of San Diego not only assists individual businesses but also helps strengthen business organizations and improve business districts throughout San Diego. We have several programs designed and intent on improving San Diego's small business communities.
