Economic Development

The White Oak Economic Development Corporation (EDC) is a Type B economic development corporation that was formed in 1995 when the citizens voted to approve a ½ cent sales tax to boost the economic development effort in the community. The city coordinator is also the White Oak EDC executive director and organizes all economic development activities. Over the past several years White Oak EDC has continued its efforts in maintaining the quality of life in White Oak as well as increasing the tax base. The White Oak EDC has been involved in many relocation projects, business retention projects, and development projects.

The White Oak EDC Board is dedicated to a successful economic development program that will protect our economic interests, increase our revenues, and promote the recruitment and retention of businesses and industries that share our values as a community, as well as our commitment to success.
The White Oak EDC Board of Directors meet on an as needed basis. Board agendas and minutes are located on the Minutes & Agendas page.
