Economic Development in Highlands County
Highlands offers an advantageous business climate and streamlined services. With only three municipalities – Avon Park, Lake Placid, and Sebring - county and city staff work collaboratively to expedite permitting processes. New and expanding businesses within the county, if they qualify, have the opportunity for development incentives, like the local Economic Development Ad Valorem Tax Abatement, Rural Job Tax Credit Program, Community Development Block Grants, and many more.
