Desirable Location for Business, Family and Retirement
Continue to nurture its role as a desirable location for business, family, and retirement populations and to provide encouragement to the industries that support and serve these populations.
Sequim’s high percentage of retirees provides a valuable source of active community members who volunteer their time and expertise and help to make Sequim a better place to live. The senior population has a stable income base that is recession proof and helps to stabilize the overall financial health of the City. The unique make-up of Sequim’s population has encouraged the growth of specialized industries, such as the healthcare industry, that create more diverse employment opportunities and family wage jobs. The City of Sequim should continue to embrace diversity in population and provide services that make the City a business, family, and retirement friendly destination.
