BERK's Economic Development Practice
BERK has led community-based economic development planning efforts, market analyses, feasibility studies, and cluster studies for dozens of Washington jurisdictions. We leverage our expertise in economic analysis and municipal finance to produce strategies that are informed by a rigorous understanding of the regional market and the fiscal implications of alternative development scenarios. Our strengths in facilitation, community outreach, and communication ensure that the final strategies are broadly supported and result in tangible actions and results.
Representative projects include the City of Bellevue's Economic Development Plan, the Economic Vitality Element of Bonney Lake's Comprehensive Plan, and an analysis of the space sector for the Puget Sound Regional Council.
