Economic Development

About Us

The Economic Development Department is committed to the expansion of Fontana’s sales tax base and improving the number of quality jobs in the City through office, retail, and industrial development. We are dedicated to the removal of blight through the reinvestment of sales tax revenue gained from the many high-quality retail developments in the Fontana community.

The Economic Development staff envisions, attracts, and facilitates projects that improve the business environment of the City of Fontana. The Division researches, identifies, and markets opportunities for retail, manufacturing, and point of sales activity through the creation of specific project strategies.
