The city cannot make a business come to Crestview. The only thing the city can do to entice businesses is to make sure there is sufficient infrastructure in place to accommodate their requirements.
The land sale is between the business and the land owner. The business must use statistics such as average area income, traffic count and other information.
The Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Council have packets with much information about the area for interested parties. The mayor is available to meet with potential business owners.
The final responsibility of making the decision is the prospective business.
What the citizens can do is to write the businesses they would like to see come to town and encourage them to consider Crestview.
