The Summit will spotlight ways the counties are positioning properties for development, offer actionable information on grants, tax incentives and funding and facilitate connections to public and private sector resources. An estimated $2 billion investment in the Valley’s semiconductors and the innovation economy is creating a need for industrial, commercial, residential, and infill development. The expected surge in infrastructure and brownfield funding, coupled with the Valley’s economic renaissance is providing developers an unparalleled opportunity for investment.
