Economic Development Staff:

The Dalles Economic Development Division helps private developers, business and property owners primarily through two programs, Urban Renewal Property Rehabilitation and Enterprise Zone Tax Abatement. In addition, we promote commercial development of large commercial projects through identification of other incentive programs and negotiations on behalf of The City and Columbia Gateway Urban Renewal Agency where appropriate.
We serve as a resource connecting other stakeholders and to help streamline the process. We can also identify other tax incentives and development cost reduction incentives.

The City of The Dalles, Oregon, is situated in the north-central part of the state on the Columbia River, the nation's second largest river. It is the county seat and the largest community in Wasco County. The Dalles is one of Oregon's most historical cities and was known earlier in its history as the town at the end of the Oregon Trail. The city was first incorporated by the Oregon Territorial Government in 1857 as “Dalles City” and was made the county seat shortly thereafter.
