 Team Approach to Economic Development

Our Team approach is based on the principles of retention, expansion, attraction and leadership.  The City of Westland wants you to succeed and we share your priorities of completing a project on time and on budget. The Team collaborates with you to provide one point of contact, a fast response to your needs, and the flexibility required to achieve your goals.

Fast Track

For new, expanding or relocating businesses, we recognize the need to offer a business friendly environment.  The city is committed to streamlining and simplifying, where possible, its permitting processes.

One example of our commitment is the Fast-Track to Business Team, which consists of the Mayor, City Council President, Planning Director, Building Director, Chief Business Development Officer, Planning Commission Chairman and Zoning Board of Appeals Chairman can be assembled quickly to craft a development plan that will help "cut the red tape" and expedite the approval process.


There are many creative and exciting ways to promote your local business while also supporting one or more of the wildly popular City events or venues. Reaction Direct administers this program for the City and can expertly develop a custom sponsorship program to reach your goals and fit your budget.
