To enable quality business retention, expansion and recruitment in the Fort Scott area by coordination of the community assets.

Our goal is to facilitate business retention and the growth of employment and wage levels. We accomplish this by working with current employers as well as the recruitment of businesses that improve the quality of life for the citizens of Fort Scott.  

Fort Scott is an exceptionally good place to work, raise a family and enjoy your friends.

Our Historic Downtown is nationally recognized for its remarkable buildings and character.  It offers great opportunities for business and residential development at extremely affordable rates. It is on the National Register of Historic Places which provides both recognition as well as major tax credit incentives to encourage building rehabilitation.
