The City of Denton and the Denton Chamber of Commerce established a joint Economic Development Partnership (EDP) in 1987. This collaboration is led by the EDP Board whose members are appointed by the Denton City Council.

The Denton EDP is an Accredited Economic Development Organization by the International Economic Development Council. The Chamber's staff coordinates marketing and recruitment efforts. City staff serves as liaison to the Board, manages incentives, and oversees business retention and Downtown programs. Working together, we create business opportunities and address the needs of our expanding community.
