Creating Economic Opportunity

Economic opportunity was another extremely popular topic in the community forums held during the Flagstaff 2020 process. Citizens often emphasized the importance of small businesses that would enrich the local economy and develop a new sense of community for the greater Flagstaff area. The Action Team hoped that residents would have a diverse choice of opportunities to earn a livable wage while also enjoying the work that they do.
