The City of Sanford Economic Development Department promotes Sanford as a great place to locate businesses through marketing and outreach efforts. Business growth from both new business relocation and existing business expansion has been a key factor to the health of our local economy.
The Economic Development team develops, implements, and manages citywide policies and procedures for encouraging and attracting growth to make Sanford even more of the livable city that it is.
The Economic Development Department is dedicated to promoting City initiatives and economic tools to business owners interested in relocating or expanding their companies in the City of Sanford. This department coordinates economic development incentives with businesses wanting to relocate. We seek to help qualified companies grow their business through expansion in our City. Our strategy involves building on the City's strengths to promote existing businesses and retain jobs, to facilitate business expansion, and recruit new businesses and related employment to the City. Business recruitment is very competitive, and as such, we partner with the State of Florida Office of Economic Development, Orlando Partnership, and a multitude of other economic development organizations to ensure your company utilizes the appropriate incentives to help grow your business in Sanford.
