The Economic Development Office meets with existing businesses in the City to identify challenges and opportunities and to provide connections to resources within the city, region and state. Staff also assists businesses interested in relocating to the city including site selection and demographic research
Once the COVID-19 crisis began to unfold, retention visits moved to a Zoom or Teams platform. As essential and nonessential businesses began to be impacted by Executive Orders, the EDO activated the Business Assistance Hotline and has fielded hundreds of calls.
Project Technetium is on hold.
EDO staff has sent out over 24 emails to local businesses regarding COVID-19. We also formed an Economic Recovery Task Force to address the impact of COVID-19 on the business community. The Coral Springs Back in Business Grant Program was approved at the June 3 Commission meeting and to date 300 businesses have applied. Of those, 222 were approved and checks have been distributed/processed.
