The City of Hickory is committed to promoting business and economic development and offers a range of incentives to new and expanding businesses.
Economic Development Incentives Policy
Economic Development Incentives Application
The City of Hickory's Operation: No Vacancy initiative aims to redevelop distressed commercial and industrial areas. The changing nature of industrial and commercial development has led to disinvestment in certain areas of the city. This initiative provides infrastructure investments and targeted development incentives to encourage redevelopment and reinvestment in the city's urban core.
