PARTNERS IN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
The Economic Development Department develops, implements and promotes programs and activities that support economic growth and development in Union. This includes bringing new business and industry to Union, as well as supporting our existing businesses and industries.
Economic Development for the City of Union is coordinated by Wanda Parsons, who works closely with the City Administrator, Russell Rost. Wanda is available to provide information about incentives, available properties and further information on how we can assist you.
Additionally, the Union Development Corporation, a non-profit, volunteer corporation, was formed in 1955 to aid the City of Union in the recruitment of industrial development and to assist with economic development issues.
The Board of Directors consists of thirteen members, six members appointed by the City of Union and seven appointed by the Union Development Corporation. The Board is made up of individuals who want to move the City of Union forward and continue “smart growth” of the area.
