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.
There were over 80 in person retention visits made in FY2020.
The EDO received inquiries from two different business interested in relocating to the Commerce Park. The two relocations could result in 265 new jobs to the City.
