Through our business retention and expansion program we have identified numerous businesses who need to expand to keep up with market demand. Our main goal is to see them grow in Davis County. In terms of business recruitment, we have spent the last few years working closely with our cities and developers to create strategic sites for retail, commercial, professional office, and industrial development throughout the County. We welcome all businesses to Davis County, but are primarily focused on key industries including aerospace, manufacturing, composites, distribution, financial services, medical technology, IT and digital media industries.

Working in conjunction with Davis County cities, we have helped overlay incentives on the majority of the land sites in the County. We also work hand in hand with the State of Utah, Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity, Northern Utah Economic Alliance, and the Economic Development Corporation of Utah (EDCUtah). EDCUtah serves as the marketing arm for the state to streamline business development processes and coordination of all other needed entities. These relationships create a seamless transition for a prospective company and a one stop shop for information and direction.

  • Continue with recovery and position Davis County to be more resilient to future major economic disruptions
  • Position Davis County to compete with any county in the nation for high-quality investment and jobs

Cities of Davis County

In all, there are 15 cities that make up Davis County.  Whether they are small or large it takes all of them to be successful.  Davis County has a great working relationship with all the cities administration, mayor’s and councils.  We work hand in hand to retain, expand and recruit businesses to our area.  All the cities have taken the slowdown in the economy as time to review building and zoning ordinances, general plans and business park plats.  This has prepared everyone for a fast track to future growth and development.  Davis County is where you will find connections.

The State Income Tax Rate is 4.65%.  The State of Utah, Counties and Cities all pride themselves on having one of the lowest tax structures in the United States.  The tax structure splits sales tax, personal and real property taxes between all taxing entities.  In some communities there are special service districts and Recreation/Arts/Parks/Zoo taxes.  These are usually sales tax or special levies for a given area.  As a whole, Davis County is a little lower in local taxes than surrounding communities.  This shows a stable and fiscally responsible local government.  

Governor Herbert said it best, “Governments role is to stay off of businesses backs and out of their wallets.”  We at Davis County agree with his statement.

Sites & Facilities



Davis County works closely and communicates frequently with its 15 cities to create shovel ready land sites. Numerous sites are currently under construction and needed infrastructure development is helping these projects gain traction and start years earlier than expected. As the cities have developed land sites, business parks and mixed use areas, they have defined certain industry clusters or sectors they are targeting. These clusters or sectors include composites, aerospace, defense, pharmaceutical, information technology, digital media, manufacturing, distribution, and financial services are among the many they have identified to target.

Additionally, Davis County and Weber County have a partnership under the Northern Utah Economic Alliance (NUEA) that coordinates with existing businesses looking to expand, businesses outside of the county looking to relocate, and site selectors working with businesses around the globe. NUEA keeps an updated list of listed and unlisted commercial property in Weber and Davis County. Below is a link to their database of properties.
