Here in Fairfax City, we’ve been using a catchphrase the past couple of years: Live Life Connected.
What does it mean? It sums up how all of the pieces of our community are connected with each other—from our great neighborhoods to our exceptional schools.
The same applies to business in Fairfax City.
It’s truly a case of Business Connected. Every company, large or small, is connected to the community in ways that help it grow and thrive. And because of Fairfax City’s exceptional location, your company is connected to the Washington, D.C. market, as well as George Mason University (literally in our back yard), Metro and Dulles and Reagan National airports.
We work tirelessly to help businesses launch and grow in the City, which creates a strong and sustainable community.
A core component of the EDA’s responsibilities involves attracting quality businesses to the City by making it easier to relocate and establish a company here.
The EDA is comprised of seven commissioners, independently appointed by the City Council for four-year terms.
Though a separate from the local government, the EDA works closely with Fairfax City Hall through the Director of Economic Development.
Above all, the EDA believes in its daily mission of …
- Empowering local businesses
- Creating sustainable business growth
- Promoting community involvement through economic development
- Promoting honesty and integrity in the community
- Fostering close ties between people, business and government
The EDA supports new, existing, and prospective Fairfax City small business owners in professional services and retail. The EDA’s target audience seeks marketing support to achieve sustainable business growth.
