Community & Economic Development 

 


Town of Angier implements Community and Economic Development programs and projects that will:


Attract new business and support new development.

Through our marketing initiatives, we spread the word that Angier has a lot to offer for new business and development. Our team works together with the community to generate ideas and create plans for continued development and sustainability of town businesses.


Market and promote Angier businesses.

A town thrives on the success of its local businesses. To ensure that Angier businesses succeed, we develop programs that support local business retention, and we assist business owners with promotions to help bring in more customers, increase sales, and spread awareness.


Promotion of town events and showcasing the downtown area.

Well-known events, such as the annual Crepe Myrtle Festival, bring people from all around to downtown Angier for a fun-filled day of entertainment. From live performances on the stage in Depot Square to parades, festivals, and street fairs along our charming streets, downtown Angier is host to many family-friendly events all year long, and we are always thinking of new ways to bring more fun and entertainment into our beautiful town.


Recommend activities and projects for both economic and community development.

The Community Development Coordinator is the staff liaison to the Angier Community Development Advisory Board, a board created by the Town Board of Commissioners to provide guidance and support to the Town Board for both economic and community development. The Community Development Advisory Board includes 9 appointed members, as well as volunteers, with representation from the local business community, area churches, and town residents. The Board recommends activities and projects that bring businesses and residents together to nurture pride in our town and sustain growth and economic well-being for years to come.
