Economic Development

Our Mission

The mission of Pittsburg’s economic development efforts is to encourage growth and prosperity in Pittsburg through:

  • Retaining and expanding existing businesses
  • Building a stronger workforce
  • Promoting local entrepreneurship and innovation
  • Attracting new businesses and investment

Economic development services are provided through contractual arrangements with the Pittsburg Area Chamber of Commerce and Pittsburg State University Enterprise PSU.
