Economic Development Authority
The City's Economic Development Authority (EDA) promotes the retention and expansion of existing businesses while attracting new businesses to the community in order to promote a diversified tax base, job opportunities, and convenient shopping for residents. The EDA is comprised of two City Council members and three residents who meet monthly on the fourth Monday at 6:30 p.m., in the City Hall Council Chambers.
Farmington is commerce friendly, responsive, and innovative in the realm of economic development. The Economic Development Authority’s mission is to market Farmington as one of Minnesota’s most desirable cities to open a business.
