To cultivate and foster the development of a vibrant city that has a strong, diverse and viable local economy for Fayetteville's residents, businesses and visitors. The City of Fayetteville recognized that Economic Development at its core is about building, enhancing and sustaining a community which values and invests in its human, physical, cultural, social and financial capital. The mission of Economic and Business Development is attracting and supporting private investments; increasing employment opportunities; wages and personal income and supporting existing as well as attracting new high quality retail, commercial and industrial enterprises throughout the City, with a particular emphasis on redeveloping under performing corridors and catalyst sites. To do so, we must further expand our local incentives portfolio, assist a diversity of business interests with a wide range of needs, and continue to work with our partners in order to bring about a higher level of prosperity, job growth and expanded economic and entrepreneurial development opportunities throughout the City of Fayetteville.
