Businesses are the lifeblood of our economy in Heber City. I have been a small business owner in this valley for over 30 years and this experience helps me to better understand what businesses need in order to thrive.
Companies like to vet out cities like Heber; we are being vetted out all the time to see if coming to Heber is a viable option. Companies spend a lot of money collecting data and information to aid them in the decision-making process. These data miners not only know how the residents are spending their money, but what credit cards they use.
Companies interested in moving to Heber or expanding a business that is here currently will look for land that is prepared. They will also evaluate building availability, city amenities, services, culture of the city, and how quickly they can move through the city’s planning and permitting process.
To make our city more business-friendly and attractive to new and existing businesses, I asked the city to develop 38 acres of land at the airport industrial park. This development will not only provide more space for larger businesses, but it will also provide an incubator building for small businesses that are just starting out.
