Fast-track your development in the City of Logan
The City of Logan has launched a $1.5m Investment Attraction Incentives Fund to entice new business to the city.
The Investment Attraction Incentives Fund is available to businesses to attract future investments in key strategic industries, where the nature and scale of the proposed investment will stimulate significant economic and community benefits, diversity and value-add to the wider regional economy beyond the growth of the business itself.
The Investment Attraction Incentives Fund was launched at a special forum held this month, at Logan Metro Sports & Events Centre.
Business leaders, commercial enablers and industry representatives attended the forum, which gave an overview of the Fund and other Council initiatives designed to maximise the city’s booming economic potential.
“The City of Logan is booming in terms of population and business opportunities,” Mayor Luke Smith said.
“Jobs are growing, major businesses such as Zarraffa’s Coffee have moved their headquarters here and our population has grown almost nine per cent in the last five years.
“But we can’t rest on our laurels, that’s why the Investment Attraction Incentives Fund has been launched to make sure Logan is a city of choice for businesses looking to start-up, expand or relocate.
“You only need to look around our city to see the growth of big business, while our location in the centre of major transport corridors enables businesses to serve domestic and international markets.”
City Planning and Economic Development Committee chairman Councillor Russell Lutton said the fund is designed to give Logan an edge when it comes to expanding its economic base.
“Council is already well regarded by the business community for supporting enterprises from the ground up through a range of services,” Cr Lutton said.
“And by inviting eligible businesses to access our Investment Attraction Incentives Fund we are ensuring that Logan doesn’t miss out on the sort of opportunities that create jobs and add value to our community.”
