The Olathe Economic Development Program is based on a cooperative relationship between the Olathe Chamber of Commerce and the City of Olathe maintaining strong ties with the Kansas Department of Commerce and the Kansas City Area Development Council to attract new and retain our existing companies.
The goal of the City is to sustain long-term economic health and vitality of the City through the retention, expansion and attraction of businesses and development that enhance property values, increase personal income, and make a positive contribution to the quality of life of the citizens of Olathe.
In partnership with the City, the Olathe Chamber of Commerce works closely with commercial property owners, business owners and developers to assure that all of our businesses are functioning at their highest and best use, contributing to the City’s tax base and helping us achieve the City’s economic development goals. In addition, the Olathe Chamber of Commerce works to actively market the City, recruit new businesses, and help existing businesses thrive.
The City of Olathe has a number of economic development programs available to eligible businesses and/or property owners. Many of the programs offer specific incentives and funding. Some of the incentives are available only in specific areas, while others are available throughout the City.
