The Madison County Community Development (MCCD) office serves as an ombudsman to business and industry in order to provide one-stop data and referral services to firms seeking information on a wide range of economic development topics such as community profiles, zoning regulations, site availability, tax incentives, infrastructure financing assistance, demographics, training and education programs, and sources of alternative business financing.
Madison County Community Development continues to assist local governments applying for assistance under state and federal economic development programs. Additionally, Madison County is actively participating in ongoing regional marketing, prospecting and retention efforts to create and retain jobs for the residents of the county and works with local governments to prepare incentive proposals to encourage a particular business to locate or expand its operations within the local government's boundaries. Madison County Community Development does not provide assistance to a local government simply relocate a business from another Madison County local government's jurisdiction.
