A Message From Your Economic Development Team
Dear Citrus Heights Businesses/Business Owners,
 
As we begin a new calendar year and officially close the book on 2020, your City Hall leaders, staff, and officials are focused on planning for the future. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to devastate our business community.

Since the end of March, our Economic Development staff have consistently shared resources to keep you informed and connected through this Focus on Business newsletter.

Our hope for this New Year is that we stay more connected than ever with our businesses and business owners, building on the strength and resilience Citrus Heights has shown this year while tackling upcoming decisions for our future. There are a number of ways you can connect with your City to stay involved: follow our social media pages, watch Council and Commission meetings, subscribe to newsletters, sign up for FlashVote, and more.

Visit CitrusHeights.net/StayConnected for our list of ways to connect. 

We are here for you, and we want to hear from you. It is our continued goal to keep you up to date with available resources and share your business through our Love Local campaign. 
 
Please reach out to me personally at MHuber@CitrusHeights.net if you need help navigating through potential resources or problem solving during this period. We are all in this together, and Citrus Heights’ strong roots can weather even the toughest storms.
 
Sincerely,
 
Meghan Huber
Economic Development & Communications Manager
