Economic Development

Evansville has a seven-member Economic Development Committee (EDC).  All the committee members are selected for their recognized experience, possessing an ability to lend unique perspective or insight to the economic development of the City of Evansville.  Members are officially appointed by the Mayor; two members of the EDC are simultaneously City Council members.  The remaining five EDC members are City alderpersons and citizen members.  

The Economic Development Committee takes on tasks including business promotion, retention and expansion of the City’s existing businesses, attraction of new businesses to the community, developing ordinances and programs as needed, evaluating sites for potential industrial and business development, and making site development recommendations.  The Committee is also responsible to keep the public, the local business community, and City Council informed on the EDC’s activities.

The Committee typically meets the 3rd Monday of the month at 6:00 pm in City Hall; 31 S. Madison Street, Evansville WI.
