The Business Development Department was created in 2012 to direct the City’s economic development strategy. The Department also supports the Main Street Program and the Downtown Development Authority. 

Business Development is tasked with retaining and recruiting successful businesses that are compatible with the local economy.  The Main Street Program is charged with promoting and enhancing economic activity in McDonough Square. The Downtown Development Authority will manage redevelopment activities within the central business district.

The mission of this Department is to increase economic activity and wealth in the community by fostering an environment that promotes business creation, leverages historic resources, and actively engages in targeted redevelopment. The Department works to encourage open communication between private enterprise and local government so that quality, sustainable, and profitable development can flourish. The Department, through the Main Street Program, partners with stakeholder groups to plan and promote unique, special events that highlight the historic nature of McDonough Square.
