Find a Location for Your Business

We can help you find a location for your business and introduce you to the resources available through our local community partners such as Available Funding. We work in collaboration with our Development Services Group (Building & Planning) to provide investors and the public, a one-window approach to access municipal services relating to economic and community development. We can help facilitate re-location and help determine if a property is a suitable use by introducing you to The County’s Planning Department.
