Encouraging an ongoing dialogue with businesses and building relationships with business leaders are critical factors for business retention. To that end, the City's Economic Development Division sponsors or conducts a number of business outreach programs that offer new and established businesses alike, education and emerging business trends and opportunities.
What is Economic Development?
Economic Development refers to policies and programs to help increase the community's economic activity in order to create more and better jobs, and to provide greater choice and competitive prices for goods and services. A healthy economy also increases revenues to the local government through more property tax and through additional sales tax, which equates to financial re-investment in city services and our business community.
