Business Retention and Expansion Program
With phenomenal growth in recent years ranking Georgetown among the top fastest growing cities in the nation with a population over 50,000 (according to the U.S. Census Bureau), the Business Retention and Expansion Program (BR&E) was initiated by the Economic Development Department to work with the local business community to strengthen and grow our economy.
While an increasing population and new business development contribute to our recent economic growth, BR&E believes it is the success of existing businesses that boosts the local economy. By maintaining open lines of communication and building enduring relationships, BR&E seeks to aid our existing job creators as they hire more employees, add locations, invest in facilities and continue to give back to the community.
Point of Contact
Your BR&E team may serve as a point of contact for assistance with workforce training and hiring, permitting for expansions, business issues and general information about city policies and processes impacting your business.
We are committed to helping our long-time business owners expand with our growing community. Let us help you explore the options and resources and gain insight into planning and permitting.
Our current business community is an excellent resource for those considering the move to Georgetown. Let BR&E introduce you to business and community leaders who are happy to share their experiences and welcome you to the Georgetown family.
A Helping Hand
In Georgetown, you’re never alone with any issues and concerns you may have. For help accessing our expansive labor shed or learning more about the resources available to your business, contact BR&E and the Economic Development Department.
