An emergent community providing a wealth of resources for business development and expansion.  With local access to interstate transportation and a short drive to Boise, Payette offers the urban-rural balance sought by business and family to work, live and play. 


The Office of Business Development provides tools and guidance to help small businesses and aspiring entrepreneurs succeed. We will work with you, one-on-one, to identify resources for starting, expanding, or moving your business to the City of Payette.

The City of Payette is located in an Opportunity Zone! Opportunity Zones are a community development program established by Congress in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 to encourage long-term investments in low-income urban and rural communities. Private investment vehicles that place 90% or more of their funds into an Opportunity Zone can earn tax relief on the capital gains generated through those investments. Tax benefits increase the longer investments are in place. Click here for more information.


Our office addresses the needs of both new and existing businesses, including job retention and growth, expansion needs, financial incentives, permitting and regulatory guidance. We engage the entire spectrum of the business community to keep informed of real conditions affecting stability and growth, and provide ongoing customized assistance to our businesses.
