Redding Chamber Relocates Downtown

December 8, 2016

The Redding Chamber of Commerce is moving to Downtown Redding in the first half of 2017. This decision was made in part due to the critical importance of what we have before us with the Downtown Redding Specific Plan Update and the Chamber wanting to have a role in giving the business community a “voice” in its revision. The Downtown Redding Specific Plan Update will become the new vision of our community’s downtown core. The Chamber is committed to Downtown Redding.

Our community, in both the public and private sectors, has been working for decades to make strides toward revitalization in its downtown core. How we as a community, and specifically a community of commerce, respond to our current short-term challenges will have long-term impact and shape our city for generations to come. It is our belief that any community with a vibrant, thriving downtown is also a healthy city. We know this district faces social challenges, and we must strike a balance that offers solutions for those experiencing homelessness and hopelessness in all its forms, while remembering that a healthy economy and a healthy community begins with a safe, pro-business climate.

The number one priority of the Redding Chamber of Commerce is to lead in the
creation of a vibrant economy downtown. A business-friendly environment in which people want to live, work, and play will have a significant impact in transforming Downtown Redding from a “9-hour intersection” into a “24-hour city”.
