Let us be your one stop for your big start!
CWEDA is your business “concierge,” providing assistance in whatever area is necessary for you to flourish here. We will put to use our partnerships and understanding of the area to move your business plans forward.
The Camas-Washougal area has a diverse and plentiful inventory ready for you. We have relationships with local developers, realtors and the Port of Camas-Washougal to reduce your search time. Based on your specifications we can find the perfect size, location and infrastructure to fit your needs.
We are a resource to help work through the permitting process. We use our understanding of permit requirements, regulations, storm water mitigation and fees, plus our relationships with area agencies to help you get everything you need in place to get your business up and running.
We will identify the state and local business tax incentives that are right for you, and help you apply.
This program allows investors to defer paying taxes on capital gains that are invested in qualified Opportunity Funds, which will be invested in distressed communities designated as Opportunity Zones. Washougal has two of the seven Clark County tracts with this distinction. The goal is to drive long-term capital into rural and low-income urban communities. (See map.)
We know that Camas-Washougal is a great place for business. But don’t just take our word for it. We will do a Competitive Analysis to show you just how we stack up to other cities, states and regions.
