The City of North Port strongly supports a dynamic and healthy business climate.

While the city is starting to attract the larger-sized firms to join our growing community, the backbone of our local economy rests within the many small thriving businesses that call North Port home.

In addition, City Leadership recognizes the crucial role that government plays in facilitating building and development to provide additional space for even more businesses to operate within the City.

By providing an active and engaged business advocacy function to the business community, the continued health of the local economy is supported and ensured. Businesses – existing, expanding, and incoming – are encouraged to contact the Business Advocate whenever they require the attention of the City Manager’s Office to help them resolve specific issues that are impeding their regular operations.
