  • Lakeland is "Open for Business"

    The City of Lakeland is committed to taking an active role in supporting and growing our business and development community.  There are many economic incentives for business and development interests through our Enterprise Zone and the Lakeland Community Redevelopment Agency, as well as through our partnerships with the Lakeland Economic Development Council , the Polk County Small Business Assistance Center and the Lakeland Downtown Development Authority.

    Our City staff is organized and willing to assist you in navigating the process of getting your business or project up and running.  Take a moment to look at the City of Lakeland's Small Business Development Guide on how to navigate through the permitting and licensing process.

    The City of Lakeland is open for business and we look forward to working with you!
