Economic Development Committee

The Economic Development Committee (EDC) was established in 2013 by the Town Council (via Resolution 4023 and updated in 2015 with Resolution 4112). 

The Committee works with the Town’s business community to identify actions that can be taken to ensure that the business community is vibrant, successful and meets the needs of the Town residents.

The Committee ensures that the Town’s business community and residential community have a forum for giving the Town input on steps needed to attract and retain a range and variety of businesses. 

Goals and Objectives:
This is an active, working committee.
In accordance with the Town's General Plan, and bearing in mind the obligation to maintain the integrity and heritage of the Town, the Committee will develop and implement an Economic Development Action Plan consisting of agreed upon goals, objectives and action steps that will serve as the framework for the Committee's ongoing progress.  This plan will be reviewed, amended as needed and presented to the Town Council on an annual basis.

The Committee recently expanded to nine (9) members (up to 3 non-resident members) and one (1) alternate, representing the diversity of interests and points of view of our community (with a strong mix of business, marketing, technology, parking management, design, and/or finance expertise), and the local business community. 

The Committee will include at all times, one (1) representative from the San Anselmo Chamber of Commerce and three (3) representatives who have businesses in San Anselmo, including a retail business owner, restaurant/cafe owner, and property owner.

The Committee will also include up to two (2) Council member liaisons, and two (2) Town staff liaisons (Planning Director and Community Services Director with additional staff as needed).
