Economic growth is the goal of all cities. A strong local economy and thriving job market help support the quality of life in a community. Through collaboration between city officials and the Greater Prescott Regional Economic Partnership (GPREP), the area is hoping to attract new industries and promote capital investments that will be beneficial to the communities of Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley, and Dewey-Humboldt.

 

The Prescott Area has already seen some initial movement on this plan for economic development. California company Vinyl Visions will have their new 50,000 square foot manufacturing facility operational by the end of the year in Prescott and are planning to hire 20 to 25 local employees to their team.

 

GPREP is hoping to attract more such companies to the region. Their goal is to diversify the economy in the Quad Cities to ensure economic stability far into the future. The involved parties looked at many different factors when determining what sort of companies they would seek out for the region. Water conservation was a major concern. In addition, due to the available resources in the area and population size, companies looking to hire 25 to 100 workers are of particular focus. Since the Quad Cities are located within an easy commuting distance of one another, competition between the cities for the actual sites of the new businesses has not been an issue. Such partnerships ensure that the residents of the greater Prescott area will benefit as the industrial sector continues to grow.
