Economic Development Corporation

Overview

Bosch BuildingIn 1979, the Farmington Hills City Council established the Economic Development Corporation (EDC), a public entity encouraging the establishment of businesses beneficial to the community. Its board members represent leaders from both business and the City.

The Farmington Hills EDC is committed to supporting new and existing industries. Backed by City government and community leaders, the EDC aims to create an environment conducive to the growth of industry while maintaining the interests of the community as a whole.

Tax Exempt Revenue Bonds

The EDC encourages the establishment of businesses beneficial to the community through Tax Exempt Revenue Bonds. For more information, contact Nancy Cappola, Economic Development Director at (248) 871-2506.

Mentoring Program

The Farmington Hills Economic Development Corporation proudly collaborates with the Farmington Public School District to offer a mentoring program for middle school students (ages 11-14). Mentors are made up of local business and community leaders that volunteer to meet with the students 10 to 12 times during a school year. Students participating in the mentor program are selected based on recommendations from teachers, counselors and principals.

Meetings between the mentors and students take place at school and the worksite and usually last about two hours. Meetings include sharing information about careers, discussing career paths and employability skills, school performance and attitudes.

The 2007/08 school year is the eighth year of this worthwhile program. If you are interested in participating, please contact the Farmington Public School District at (248) 426-4876.
