Emerging/Developmental Target Industries

Emerging or Developmental sectors represent those sectors for which Eagle does not have a high concentration of existing industry clusters, but have the potential to align with desired attributes of the community and its residents as identified through the City's Target Industry Analysis and during the City's Comprehensive Planning process.  Such desired attributes include greater economic diversification, creation of more local jobs for residents that commute out for work, and the development of an economic identity outside of a "bedroom community"
