The office of Economic Development seeks to improve the quality of life for residents of the City of Leesville by creating and/or retaining jobs and supporting the growth of local economy. We provide resources to existing local businesses and act as a liaison with business and industry seeking to locate here.

Join the Mayor and the City Council in celebrating Leesville’s many successes. There are a number of restaurant expansions and new business startups ongoing in the city. The industrial park is alive again and attracting interest from manufacturers and oil and gas supply companies.

The City's goal is to make business needs accessible, from zoning and land development to licensing requirements. Check out the web page to find out the resources made available for potential business and developers to transition into the Leesville/Fort Polk community.
