Economic Development consists of business attraction, retention and expansion. Economic Development staff act as ombudsmen for local business owners to identify and resolve barriers that their businesses face. The Economic Development Office maintains strong relationships with state and county economic development organizations to market the City of Deerfield Beach to prospective new companies.

Economic Development Strategy 

The Economic Development Strategy evolved from a Economic and Competitive Advantage Analysis and subsequent SWOT Analysis that assessed the existing conditions that drive the economy in Deerfield Beach. 

The strategies and recommendations emanated from a recurring theme that emerged from the strategic planning process of Deerfield Beach aspiring to be a Vibrant Coastal City. This compelling theme provides a challenge and an opportunity to connect the overarching strategies that capitalize on the City’s economic strengths and opportunities while addressing existing weaknesses and threats.

It lays the groundwork for targeted business attraction and retention, workforce development, branding & marketing activities, and the development of key areas throughout the city.
