Economic Development Staff: 

Matthew Klebes, Assistant to City Manager       Gary Rains, Business Development Director

The Dalles Economic Development Team 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.
