Opinion: Tallahassee’s growing economy

Signs of progress can be seen all over town. Private development, a driving force strengthening and diversifying our local economy, is thriving in our city and signals a positive outlook for the next couple of years. Scattered throughout Tallahassee, there are close to 100 development projects in various phases.

With a focus on the future, you can count on City government to continue working to foster a healthy business environment, while keeping a close eye on key economic indicators. The Tallahassee-Leon County Office of Economic Vitality is monitoring and reporting job growth, which is currently trending in the right direction. Compared to last year, employment, labor, and wages are all up, while office vacancies and mortgage foreclosures are down.  

Efforts to support development projects include investing in infrastructure improvements and proactive permitting processes, which are contributing to the rapid growth of our community.
