Strategic Economic Development Plan

The City of Roswell is committed to maintaining a vibrant and healthy economy. In 2012, the Mayor and City Council accepted a Strategic Economic Development Plan to guide the City's economic development efforts. Redevelopment plays a large role in the City's plan, and the plan provides strategies tailored to Roswell's unique opportunities and challenges. Roswell Inc has been tasked with implementing this plan. Information on their activities can be found on the Roswell Inc website.

Urban Redevelopment Plans/Areas

The City of Roswell adopted its first Urban Redevelopment Plan in 2010 as a precursor to applying for an Opportunity Zone, and a second in 2013 for another Opportunity Zone.
