Economic Development Initiative

The world of economic development is very dynamic and often seemingly very secret. While we will endeavor to share as many successes and exciting developments as we can, confidentiality is crucial in every project up until the time when the business owner is ready to release details.

For more information on the opportunities La Porte has to offer a prospective business please visit the Greater La Porte Economic Development Corporation (GLEDC) website.
