Economic Development

As part of the City Planning Department, the City Economic Development Program sets forth to grow local businesses, facilitate expansion, and recruit outside businesses to locate in the City of La Crosse in order to increase the quality of living, add well-paying jobs and grow tax base.

City staff not only provides conventional economic development services, but also staff the City's Arts Board in an effort to promote downtown economic development through the arts and tourism.
