Parker Economic Playbook (P.E.P)

In early 2023, the Town of Parker began work crafting the Parker Economic Playbook (PEP): Moving Parker Towards a Thriving Economic Future. This economic development strategic plan will include recommendations to guide Town policies that will promote economic resiliency, expand employment opportunities and guide us forward for the next decade and beyond. 

Residents, business owners and community members were encouraged to provide input and opinions on what could make Parker an even better place to live, work and play through a short survey that was conducted in February and March 2023. The survey asked questions about Parker today, including changes to retail shopping needs, dining and entertainment, and more. It also looked at Parker in the future. We want to know your vision for Parker 10 years from now and what employment opportunities would be most valuable for community members. 

More information will be shared about the progress of the Town's strategic planning efforts as the process moves along. In the meantime, make sure to follow us on Facebook (@ParkerEDD)!
