Citrus County S.T.E.P.
(Strategy Toward Economic Progress)
The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners’ Economic Development Department with citizen input and technical assistance from the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council, worked to complete the following report forming an economic development strategic plan with target industry recommendations. An overarching purpose of the strategic planning process was to develop consensus among the community for identifying the highest priority industries (“target industries”) that the County should pursue in developing its economy. The Board of County Commissioners adopted this economic development strategic plan (STEP) on June 25, 2018. Building upon the work of the STEP plan, the Citrus County Economic Development Business Plan, was presented for BOCC and public consideration and unanimously adopted by the Board on September 11, 2018. The Business Plan outlines the activities and work plan now in place for implementing the STEP Strategic Plan to achieve a stronger local economy in Citrus County.
