Economic & Community Development

Lake at SunsetThe Planning Department of the City of Hendersonville is extremely active in the recruitment and retention of retail, office, and industrial clients. The City is currently experiencing unprecedented growth in retail and office development and has over $1 billion in new development approved for construction throughout the City.

With an affluent and well-educated community that has continued to grow at a steady rate, many local, regional, and national developers are realizing success in Hendersonville.

Research

In early 2023, the Middle Tennessee Industrial Development Association conducted its fourth bi-annual Wage and Benefits Survey. This survey is geared towards industrial and manufacturing job creators and survey participants are asked to participate by filling out the completely confidential survey and returning it to the MTSU Business and Economic Research Center. The data gathered helps the City and State in our ongoing Economic Development efforts to retain, redevelop, and recruit industry throughout Hendersonville, Sumner County, and Middle Tennessee.
