As businesses need governmental policies that unleash the strength of the private sector, the Jefferson Business Council assists parish leaders in developing strategies for economic development and growth. Through advocacy and leadership, we foster open, frequent communication between community and government officials.
The JBC has made great strides to ensure the prosperity of the region's largest parish. Recently the JBC has been a principal advocate for the Jefferson Edge 2020 Quality of Life Initiative to address the parish's most critical issues. These include flood protection, crime, public education, healthcare, beautification, insurance, economic development and the redevelopment of Fat City.
