Economic Development Programs

The City of Mansfield is excited to announce that we have approved a Restaurant Recruitment Program that is specific to key commercial corridors in our Historic Downtown core. We realize the need to promote and continue to support the redevelopment and revitalization of Historic Downtown Mansfield. After adopting 32 Downtown Development Strategies in June 2020, the City has been working diligently to implement these techniques and promote continued public and private investment in your hometown.
