Jacksonville Business Park
The Jacksonville Business Park was created by the City of Jacksonville to have as an area of development for back-office businesses and incubation of businesses. Miller Mott College is a tenant of the park located off Williamsburg Parkway. Inquires about the park should be directed to the JOED. View a business park map (PDF).
Jacksonville also works with the Jacksonville-Onslow Chamber of Commerce to ensure that the voice of the business community is heard. The chamber works well to advocate for the business community.
City Government Roles
The Mayor and City Council have taken a proactive stance to advance new business development in the community and is particularly working to advance the downtown area.
For new business and economic opportunities, the City Manager’s Office acts as a “dragonslayer” to assist in fairly navigating the process of setting up a business.
