Welcome to the City of Benton’s economic development department page! The new economic development department is dedicated to creating and sustaining a vibrant and diverse business environment in our community. Our goal is to attract good, high-paying jobs to our area and help our current businesses prosper and expand.
Creating economic opportunity for all, with a progressive outlook on our future, is the fundamental idea behind the Benton Business Development Initiative [BBDI], which is an assemblage of community and business leaders focused on the common goal of increasing an already robust quality of life in the city.
Together we can build a better Benton!
