  • City of Dearborn enhances web tools available for prospective businesses

    Business webpages Tom PaisonWith an economy on the rise, there is renewed interest in doing business in Dearborn

    The City of Dearborn economic development experts are happy to welcome business professionals hoping to establish, expand or relocate a business in Dearborn.

    In an effort to make sure prospective owners have information and access to important tools, the business portion of the city website has been expanded at www.cityofdearborn.org/business.

    “Since businesses and entrepreneurs now do much of their research for site selection and planning online, the City wanted to provide convenient access to the information they need to make informed planning decisions when looking to locate in our community,” said Tom Paison, assistant director of the Economic and Community Development Department.

    Tools available on the new webpages are:

    • Available commercial sites
    • Access to business intelligence and site selection data tools provided by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation
    • Business district information, maps and property information packets
    • A guide to development in Dearborn
    • A resource guide for Dearborn businesses and entrepreneurs
    • Zoning and ordinance information
    • Economic development marketing and business plans
    • A Redevelopment Ready Community Certification webpage with links to resources
    • Banquet and meeting spaces operated by the City of Dearborn

    The City of Dearborn serves a critical role in helping entrepreneurs through the process of opening a new business, working with existing businesses, ensuring a good relationship with the community, complying with local ordinances, and advocating for programs supporting Dearborn's business sector.
