The economic history of Tillamook County is not much different from that of other areas heavily dependent on resource industry. Development pressures, declining natural resources, a shift to a lower wage service economy based on high income in-migrants and general economic uncertainty and instability have converged to present citizens of the county with challenging decisions. Their response has been to integrate local, outcome-focussed initiatives with the State's 'benchmarking' process. The result has been a new culture of inter-sector collaboration, and renewed conviction that local people can shape major changes to their communities' ways of life.
