Economic Development

As the Capital City and Crossroads of the West, Salt Lake City has a responsibility to lead our State’s economy. When Mayor Biskupski called for the creation of the Department of Economic Development two years ago, her goal was to align City resources to create jobs for all people, drive investment, and to develop a green economy for the future. 

Since then, our teams, led by Director Lara Fritts, have created more than 6,000 jobs and attracted companies resulting in nearly a billion dollars in capital investment. The DOED team continues streamline processes, provide excellent customer service, and show how business is done and won in Salt Lake City.
