The Douglas County Economic Development Authority is an independent agency charged with Economic Development for Douglas County including the City of Douglasville and the sections of the cities of Austell and Villa Rica within Douglas County.
Our goals are:
Our mission is to bring quality jobs and opportunities for the citizens of Douglasville and Douglas County through continued growth in new and existing industry and the redevelopment of obsolete retail centers. Over $1 billion in new investments have been made in Douglas County in the past five years through the efforts of the Development Authority.
We work toward our mission using the philosophy of “if we Can’t, Don’t or Won’t, someone else Can, Do or Will.” Using this as our guide, we strive to meet the needs of business at the speed of business. No project has left Douglas County because the Development Authority could not respond to their needs.
