Seeking Development Opportunities
The City of La Porte has a solid, diverse economy that:
Attracts billions of dollars in industrial trade and investment,
Maintains a daytime employment of 154,000
Boasts a high average household income of $72,000
Provides access to over 6 million tourists
Even with this solid foundation, the City of La Porte suffers from a lack of new retail, restaurant, and/or mixed use development.
The City of La Porte is seeking opportunities to discuss new retail and restaurant developments with prospective retailers and developers. A variety of financial incentives are available to encourage new retail development in La Porte.
