Economic Development

The seven-member Tipton Development Commission was established to facilitate a partnership between the Tipton Chamber of Commerce, Tipton Economic Development Corporation and the City of Tipton. The commission is comprised of two delegates from each entity and one at-large member. Tipton's first Economic Development Director came on board in August of 2006 to carry out the priorities and initiatives of the Tipton Development Commission, as well as facilitate further community minded programs and further progress Tipton as a thriving business community with a high quality of life.

The Economic Development Director is responsible for the promotion of Tipton as a great place to live and do business, working towards downtown revitalization and researching grants and other funding sources to aid in Tipton's community development efforts.

Tipton’s economic development leaders are working hard to bring continued prosperity to the community.
