Economic Profile

Businesses are thriving in Windsor.


Since its incorporation in 1992, the Town of Windsor has grown in a series of healthy spurts.  We expect another growth spurt soon with Windsor as a major stop along stage one of the SmartTrain route that will stretch from Cloverdale to San Rafael. From tourism to technology to the artisan food movement, Windsor is a center of activity in a thriving North Bay County that still makes living affordable with housing and good schools.

Are you thinking of relocating to Windsor? Or expanding your existing operation in Windsor? We can help you find the information you need to be successful.

In order to provide business with key data about economic and demographic trends, the Town contracts with HdL Companies to track the performance of our local businesses and provide quarterly sales tax updates. (See downloadable reports below.)

Business Sector highlights:

Windsor is home to a thriving and growing business community.

A wide variety of retail thrives in Windsor. From Old Downtown tenants that benefit from the walkable Town Green neighborhood to shopping centers anchored by stores such as Home Depot and Wal Mart. Bell Village shopping center is our newest addition coming online spring of 2016 and will be anchored by a flagship Oliver’s Market.

An up-and-coming beverage manufacturing sector is hitting the scene in a cluster along Bell Road with exciting young businesses such as Sonoma Brothers Distillery and Two Shepherds Wine.

A handful of technology firms have made their homes in Windsor and with the availability of affordable office/industrial space, more businesses are taking a look at Windsor for relocation.

Redevelopment Efforts: Today the Town of Windsor, in partnership with a private developer, has revitalized the downtown core. Over $15 million has been invested on roadway improvements, utility undergrounding, public facilities and a train depot that will link Windsor to points north and south as a future stop on the SMART Train route.
