The Economic Development Commission provides recommendations to the City Council on how to support and encourage: the retention and expansion of existing business that align with Talent’s other community development goals; a favorable environment to attract and maintain new businesses; and the development of commercial and industrial land, with preference in all cases for businesses that improve livability and/or bring jobs with wages above the Jackson County average to Talent. In support of these goals, the Commission will maintain active communication with Talent's business community to stay informed of opportunities to be responsive to the business community's current and future needs.

Meetings are held the 2nd Thursday of the month at 6:30 PM.
