San Juan County Utah, also known as Utah’s Canyon Country, is located in the southeast corner of the state. We are home to 4 National Monuments, 2 State Parks, Canyonlands National Park, Monument Valley Tribal Park, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, and endless year-round recreational opportunities.
Regionally situated and accessible within the four corners, San Juan County truly is the place to work, with unparalleled quality of life for true work-life balance. The economic future for the county is bright, and we are continuously working to improve and expand resources and opportunities in the region.
If we've left you wondering who we are, we invite you to watch our video This is San Juan.
Hózhó, a Diné (Navajo) word that describes finding balance. A part of the San Juan County Economic Development and Visitor Services mission is to develop interagency collaboration. We strive to grow economic opportunities with the communities and our partners.
San Juan County Economic Development works with businesses investing in San Juan County providing training, resources, contacts, and programs; with the purpose to support businesses, improve operations, and employment opportunities.
Collaborative partners with San Juan County include Local governments, Chapters, Utah State University, Economic Development Administration (EDA), Southeast Utah Association of Local Governments (SEUALG), USU Blanding Small Business Development Center (SBDC), Utah's Governor's Office of Economic Development (GOED), Economic Development Corporation of Utah (EDCUtah), and additional development partners.
We are always looking to the future. The future of San Juan County is bright, and as a county, we are dedicated to planning for our future development and growth. In 2017/2018 we compiled a Strategic Plan for Economic Development, in this plan we identified five key areas of focus for the next ten years. These key areas include broadband, transportation, diversification of the economy and workforce, business expansion and retention, as well as a celebration of culture and heritage. We believe this is a living and working document, it is our commitment to work with our community partners and annually re-visit and fine-tune our plan.
We invite you to take a minute and review our plan here.
