Spurring investment to create a stronger South Bend is the mission of our department. We do this by attracting and retaining growing businesses, planning for vibrant neighborhoods, and connecting residents to economic opportunities. To better assist the citizens and businesses of South Bend with variety of tasks, we’re organized into four teams that work collaboratively with each other.
The Engagement and Economic Empowerment team is here to empower all residents with access to economic opportunities and meaningful civic participation. Our team will strive to improve the quality of life for residents in neighborhoods and help facilitate community partnerships.
We’ve redesigned the website with an emphasis on better connecting you with services, facilities, and information pertaining to everyday life in South Bend. Click on the left and right arrows to navigate these quick tips to make the most of your first experience.
