The Economic Development division assists the City Manager’s Office and the City Council in defining opportunities, in partnership with others in the community to expand the City’s tax base, support job growth, and revitalize downtown.

The City’s primary economic development responsibility is to ensure that the community is a competitive location for businesses and talent. This involves offering predictable, efficient processes for growing businesses; adopting competitive business policies; encouraging economic development through productive relationships with other organizations; and providing infrastructure and quality of life amenities that make the community a desirable place.
