Updates" Spotlights New Businesses
after the City of Largo took the progressive steps and adopted its
first ever Economic Development Plan, the Economic Development
Division quickly went to work. One of the first initiatives the
division undertook was the updating of the Economic Development
website. "We understand that the internet is one of the best ways
to get information out. We want our website to be one in which
businesses in Largo or those that wish to relocate to Largo can
quickly find desired information," says Amanda Montgomery, Economic
Development Program Planner.
of the newest features added to the website is a section called
"Largo Updates." This is where businesses that are making an
significant investment in Largo are highlighted. Such businesses
include Bovie Medical, the Largo Diagnostic Clinic, as well as
smaller businesses in downtown such as Sikorski's Deli and Gulf Coast

says Teresa Brydon Economic Development Manager. In the Economic
Development Plan one of the first goals outlined is the establishment
and maintenance of good working relationships with businesses in the
City through a coordinated business call and visitation program

expansion of growing firms.

achieving that goal" says Brydon.
the list is not a comprehensive list it is designed to show that even
in an economic slow down the City of Largo is still experiencing
growth. The businesses highlighted are companies that either
began in Largo, are headquartered here or chose to move to this area
due to the outstanding workforce, community and economy. Each one of
these businesses is an essential part of Largo's local economy not
only because they provide local jobs but also because of their
investments in the community.
Economic Development website also provides demographic information, a
list of available commercial properties, helpful economic development
links and information on federal, state and local economic
development incentives. To
