In response to the business closures due to COVID-19, the City of New Brighton will keep an updated list of resources that can assist local businesses through the closures and re-openings.

Resources for Businesses

The Department of Community Assets and Development (DCAD) oversees economic development issues and concerns in New Brighton. Some development occurs on its own and some through the encouragement and assistance of City staff and financing strategies. DCAD staff works with elected officials, advisory commissions, citizens, and businesses to develop plans designed to build and maintain a healthy residential and business environment.

For more information, call 651-638-2059 or email Ben Gozola, Assistant Director of the Department of Community Assets and Development.

Part of the City's responsibilities include connecting businesses to other resources including the following.
