Business & Economic Development

The OECD works to create a climate in Taunton that is conducive to growing and attracting businesses in order to strengthen and revitalize the City's neighborhoods and communities and to stabilize and transform our physical, social, and economic environment.  The Department promotes the City as an attractive location for new businesses, retaining and expanding our valued existing businesses, and increasing our tax base.  We provide planning support, technical assistance, coordination and advisory services to city officials, boards, and committees on issues involving economic development and community development.
