Notes from the Board
Increasing the opportunities for investment and development of businesses is critical to improving Vallejo’s economy. The City of Vallejo’s Economic Development Division (Division) supports economic growth in Vallejo. The Division's services include new business recruitment; referrals to technical assistance for existing Vallejo businesses; business retention; facilitating and negotiating large development projects, such as the Waterfront Project; managing the Mare Island conversion; asset management of City of Vallejo property; and staffing the Successor Agency to the former Vallejo Redevelopment Agency. The primary goals of the Division are to increase the tax base and employment opportunities in Vallejo.
On April 25, 2015 come to the VHNA General Meeting to hear guest speaker, Kathleen Diohep, Economic Development Manager, explain the planning actions being undertaken on Mare Island, Vallejo’s Waterfront, and other projects. The meeting will be held at the Mira Cultural Community Center, 51 Daniels Avenue in Vallejo from 10 am to Noon. Refreshments and Moschetti Coffee will be provided by the VHNA and its members. We hope you will attend because Vallejo’s economic development is vital for everyone.
