Directing and prioritizing action and investment to promote business growth, job creation & retention, and enhanced well-being for the residents and communities of Yamhill County, Oregon.
A word about how we got here
GROW was launched in 2012 with the goal of creating a strategic plan for economic development in Yamhill County. Home to many successful businesses, a thriving entrepreneurial spirit, and robust sense of community, Yamhill County has enjoyed strong, organic economic development at the city and local levels, but has been without a strategic county-wide approach for several decades.
GROW Yamhill County brought together 65 local leaders from across the county to discuss the future of this economically fertile corner of Oregon, blending dual interests in supporting existing efforts and expanding them with an eye toward future business growth, prosperity, and local resiliency. Uniting various parties and sectors is a deep concern for the well-being of local residents, businesses, and communities and a collaborative spirit that recognizes that we are stronger together. Together we can GROW Yamhill County.
