  • Economic Development

  • The City of Central’s Economic Development Initiative strives to foster leadership in strategic planning, support our family-friendly, business community, prioritize education and encourage workforce development, and invite others to share our unique quality of life.     Created to serve as a resource for all our business endeavors, the City of Central Economic Development initiative will strive to lead our city in strategic planning.  In effort to promote self-sustenance and wealth, we will work to implement and better business recruitment, business retention and expansion, entrepreneurial and start-up support, workforce development, lobbying for public policy changes, and community development.  The City of Central is an up-and-coming, family-friendly community located approximately ten miles north east of Baton Rouge.  With our close proximity to the fast growing communities of Zachary and Livingston Parish and our accessibility through roadway infrastructure, Central has blossomed into a desirable area for business.  Companies located within Central can take advantage of the competitive state and regional tax, workforce, and industry applicable business incentives, as well as developing local incentives to drive down operation costs.  Existing businesses can take advantage of support for expansion, including assistance from our office of Economic Development as challenges arise.  Developing a first class workforce is top priority for the Office of Economic Development.  We strive to develop relationships with universities, colleges, training courses, and Central's top rated school system to offer high quality education opportunities.  Central offers a unique quality of life as a community dedicated to providing a family friendly environment.  With a highly ranked school system, an emphasis on peewee sport leagues, beautiful housing developments, quality healthcare services, and many local community events, Central is an attractive environment for businesses and residents of all ages and background.
