Here We Grow in Flagler County!

(Published on - 9/5/2017 2:44:41 PM)

 

 

It seems as though Flagler County continues to grow!  We can credit much of our growth to the Department of Economic Opportunity (FCDEO), founded by the Flagler County Board of County Commissioners in 2011 when our unemployment rate was over 12% - the highest in the State of Florida.  

 

Flagler County Milennial & GenZ populations, have the highest growth rate in the area - 11.4%.  The county has a high percentage of the 20 to 65 year old age group as well - 51% 

 

 

US News and World Report named Palm Coast 9th in the nation for home ownership. Flagler boasts a 2.7% population growth year after year, with a 9% population growth over the last 5 years!

 

 

 

As you can see the unemployment rate in Flagler continues to drop as the Flagler County Department of Economic Opportunity works to create jobs.

 

The FCDEO employs three methods to facilitate the creation of jobs and foster capital investments:

 

Attraction of new companies to the area (business recruitment)

Growth/Expansion of existing firms within the area (business retention & expansion)

Creation of new entities (entrepeneurial development)

 

 

Where does Flagler County work? Our top employers are a mix of public and private sector jobs: Flagler County Schools, Florida Hospital Flagler & Searay Boats.  The top growing industries in Flagler are construction, business & financial services and leisure & hospitality services.

 

 

In addition to our steadily growing employment rate and top-ranked schools and businesses, Flagler County is home to many entrepeneurs. These entrepeneurs can now have their own office space at the beach, thanks to a new company, Ripple Coworking. This 19 office coworking space provides shared common areas, high-speed internet and a front desk reception area.
