The Fulton County Economic Development Division is pleased to announce the launch of http://fultoncountyga.gov/fced-home. This new webpage provides businesses with useful information on Fulton County, tax incentives, and resources for doing business in the County.
This webpage is the first component of the Economic Development Divisionâ€™s online information-sharing and connectivity strategies, and it will be enhanced using a generational approach. The first generation uses a design that complements the Fulton County Government website. As a newly formed division, the goal is to connect the two entities and show the direct relationship between the Economic Development Division and the departments, agencies and services available in Fulton County.
The second generation of the site will offer more robust, interactive functionality. The broader vision includes allowing visitors to research County statistics, explore available real estate inventories, view GIS maps, view webinars, and peruse articles and whitepapers. The site will also evolve to provide an online forum for discussions with like-minded business leaders.
â€śWe understand that organizations would like multiple paths to explore the County with the ability to manage how they interact with the Divisionâ€ť, states Kenneth Dobson, Economic Development Division Administrator. â€śWe want to provide dynamic content that moves potential business and real estate investors from being generally interested in Fulton County to locating their offices or manufacturing facilities here.â€ť
Another goal for the Economic Division is directed toward business retention. â€śThere are local businesses who have invested in this community, and we would like to keep them hereâ€ť, maintains Dobson. â€śThis means, we will offer insights, advice, and a platform for businesses to grow and expand with the help of our development specialists and online service delivery.â€ť
Mr. Dobson believes that in order for Fulton County to grow, there must be an increase in the Countyâ€™s connectivity, engagement, collaboration, strategic alliances and partnerships with the entire public, private and education sectors of Fultonâ€™s economy.
