Welcome to Salt Lake City Economic Development

Enterprise SLC Effort Results in 3-Point Economic Development Pledge

An intensive policy and strategic planning process around the economic development framework for Salt Lake City, entitled Enterprise SLC, was undertaken over the past 18 months. The process involved extensive outreach and meetings with business and community leaders. The Enterprise SLC process resulted in a Vision and Strategy Memorandum, which can be viewed here
In response to the Vision and Strategy Memorandum, a 3-Point Economic Development Pledge was adopted which will; 1) address existing barriers within the organization; 2) support businesses with tools; and 3) foster and reaffirm partnerships with organizations who share our goal to create a Great American City.
