Economic Development

The continued economic development of St. Joseph is a top priority of our elected officials, our management team and staff, and our economic development partners in the community.

City staff, including representatives from Administrative Services, Public Works, Legal and Planning, as well as the involvement of the St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce, work closely to achieve a comprehensive approach to economic development efforts. Working in a collaborative manner on economic development issues helps to address company concerns as well as community issues.

About the Team

The goal of the team is to review projects in a comprehensive manner and to ensure project time lines are met. The team meets regularly at the staff level and with companies and developers on an individual basis as needed. View more information by visiting Choose St. Joseph - An Economic Development Website.
