Development Advantages

Merced offers a strong command of its regional market, being clearly dominant in retail sales for the region between the Fresno and Modesto market areas. New retail and office tenants entering the market will be part of the undisputed center of the region.

The market is growing and improving, with Merced County projected to have rapidly rising income levels over the next decade. In addition, the City offers development incentives such as the Enterprise Zone, and Redevelopment in selected areas.
