Economic Development Goals & Strategies

Major Strategies - Summary
Apple Valley has five major strategies to increase economic opportunities for our residents:
  • Act as a partner to guide vitality through new development, redevelopment, and offer support to existing commercial properties.
  • Attract businesses focused on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), and provide opportunities for a well-educated and fairly compensated workforce.
  • Attract large employers primarily in the designated Mixed Business Campus area. 
  • Connect Apple Valley to the region in new ways by using advances in communication, technology, and transit.
  • Unify and encourage redevelopment in the downtown area using the Cedar Avenue and County Road 42 road and transit system improvements as a trigger.
