In a nutshell we facilitate job growth by:
  • Helping our current businesses find the resources and money they need to succeed and grow
  • Guiding new entrepreneurs toward helpful resources, business loans and site locations
  • Attracting new businesses to grow an industry cluster or fill a local product or service void
Location: The Economic Development office is in the lower level of the historic 1889 Florence County Courthouse on 501 Lake Ave one block south of US Hwy 2 in downtown Florence.

Office Hours: It's best to call or email for an appointment because meetings
and appointments take me away from my office at times.
