Employment Areas

The employment areas were identified as a result of two major County plans: the 2013 Strategic Economic Development Plan and the 2014 Southern Green Line Station Area Plan. These designated employment areas have the highest concentrations of economic activity in our four targeted industry clusters:

  • Business Services
  • Federal Government
  • Healthcare and Life Sciences
  • Information, Communication, and Electronics (ICE)

Recommended Action

Plan 2035 recommends continuing to support business growth in these geographic areas - in particular in the targeted industry clusters - concentrating new business development near transit where possible, improving transportation access and connectivity, and creating opportunities for synergies.
