According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, small businesses represent 99.7% of all employers. Not only do small businesses contribute to our local economy, but they also provide employment opportunities. Since 1995, small businesses have generated 64% of new jobs.

- You celebrate the uniqueness of our community.
- You support local jobs.
- You help the environment.
- You encourage the community.
- You invest in entrepreneurship.
- You make our community a destination!
