Community Economic Development

The Community and Economic Development Unit serves as a resource and assistance center for limited resource families and individuals in pursuit of increasing their standard of living through entrepreneurship, community program participation, home ownership, and government assistance programs. Primarily the Community & Economic Development (CED) staff offers professional consultation and technical assistance for entrepreneurs and community organizations looking to start or expand their operations.

CED staff provides insight on the local business climate and feasibility of the proposed business idea or expansion and provide local government and community analysis of critical economic development issues.
