Office of Economic Development

The City of Sherwood's Office of Economic Development works with the Mayor's Office and the Chamber of Commerce on ways to attract new commercial, industrial, and technical development for the City. The Office works closely with Federal, State, and Regional Economic Development programs to cultivate leads for prospective businesses.

Providing research and marketing of the City of Sherwood to prospective businesses is the main goal of this office.  Quality and accurate research can positively impact the marketing effort by providing persuasive decision-making information for a prospective business considering whether or not it is a prudent decision to locate or relocate their business in Sherwood. A brochure has been developed as part of our marketing efforts and you are invited to download it.

This office utilizes all of the community’s resources to prepare and make the “business case” for an industry or business to move or locate here. In the past two years alone, the City of Sherwood has attracted over 1200 direct jobs and over 2400 indirect jobs with the openings and expansions of TeleTech, ABC Financial, Galley Support Innovations, Cardinal Health, Custom Aircraft Cabinets, CHI St. Vincent North, Delta Dental and many other small businesses that we are happy to welcome to our City. With recent annexation, there are numerous excellent locations for future development.

The Sherwood Economic Development Office works closely with State and Regional Development Partners such as the  Metro Little Rock Alliance, CAPDD, the Arkansas Economic Development Commission, and UALR’s Arkansas Economic Development Institute to market the Central Arkansas Area.
