Recruitment, Retention and Redevelopment

The City of Forest Park operates a comprehensive economic development campaign designed to help companies find lasting success in our community. This award winning program has produced some impressive results. Over the past 20 years, local companies have invested almost $400 million on projects involving the creation or retention of nearly 4,000 jobs.

Our economic development team utilizes an impressive network of contacts from the public and private sectors to help companies considering expansion or relocation. Not only can we help your company find the right site, we can also connect you with the resources needed to complete your project. 

In addition to helping companies considering expansion or relocation, the City of Forest Park has created an innovative program to promote the revitalization of underdeveloped or underutilized properties. Our community redevelopment initiative has identified several areas of the community as targets for redevelopment. Companies considering properties in these areas may be eligible for special incentives and other forms of assistance. 

Companies considering expansion or relocation in Forest Park may be eligible for any of the following: tax abatement, earnings tax rebates, redevelopment grants or permit discounts. Our team can create a customized financial offer tailored to your company's unique needs. To learn more more about our business assistance and redevelopment programs, contact the development office by calling (513) 595-5207 or email to pbrehm@forestpark.org.
