The City of Anacortes is dedicated to enhancing and expanding the economic and business climate of the City.  Our goal is to preserve Anacortes as an attractive place to live and work.

Downtown Anacortes
Every great city has a strong, healthy downtown.  It is important for Anacortes to have a vibrant downtown where people throughout the region can gather to live, work, shop and enjoy entertainment options.

Business Development
The City works to enhance our economic base through business creation, expansion and retention efforts in partnership.

We are committed to promoting healthy economic development and providing jobs in our community through the City's streamlined development review process.  This is a more efficient process that does not compromise our ability to ensure that development projects are consistent with codes and policies that affect the livability of our community.
