About Us

The Economic Development Office (EDO) was established within the Economic Development and Planning Branch of the Resource Management Agency (RMA) in 2012.  Since its inception, the EDO has achieved measurable growth in the following industry sectors: agribusiness, renewable energy, healthcare, retail, commercial, and industrial—additionally, an increase in tourism and filming activities.

The Tulare County Economic Development Office was created to provide rapid and substantive assistance to developers, existing businesses, and prospective new development opportunities. The EDO’s mission is to foster business creation, expansion, and attraction by providing quick reviews and feedback on development prospects and proposals.
