The Redevelopment Agency realizes the importance of supporting local businesses, because, essentially, they are the backbone of communities. As such, Rockledge strives to provide a welcoming, business-friendly atmosphere to merchants and service providers seeking to locate, or expand their operations, within the City. Each month, a list of new businesses and service providers, complete with their contact information, is posted on the Agency website and City and Agency Facebook pages, encouraging residents and visitors to patronize them as often as possible.
The Agency also offers a number of services to new and existing businesses, at no cost, such as assistance with marketing efforts and coordinating grand opening and ribbon cutting events, which are not just for new businesses! Any business seeking to reinvent itself or that has recently had a change in management is a prime candidate for an event of this nature.
