The Economic Sustainability Department fosters sound economic growth and quality of life in the City of Coral Gables. The Department has a three pronged focus: 1) economic development, including marketing, enhancement of quality of life, creation of public/private partnerships, supporting existing businesses and bringing new businesses to the City; 2) cultural development; and 3) negotiation and administration of certain City property agreements.
We are dedicated to positioning Coral Gables for sustainable, long-term economic vitality that enhances the quality of life of residents and strengthens the business environment.
The Department helps to establish, maintain, and fund exceptional economic development services that help reinforce and grow the City’s image and meet the needs of the business community. This involves promoting programs to businesses, City development initiatives and engaging in various marketing efforts.
The Department helps to support and grow the cultural base and offerings of the City for the benefit of residents, businesses, and visitors. This involves grant administration, administration of the Art in Public Places program, as well as cultural or community initiatives.
The Department assists with finding, negotiating (including public/private ventures), and administrating agreements with others with regard to City Property in order to obtain value for the City.
