Opportunity Abounds

The target that you establish guides your decision making process and your every action. The better you see your target, the more successful you will be. 


Wyoming's positive business climate, low taxation and progressive attitude are powerful tools which your business can use to their advantage. Cody's reputation as a hospitality community will make you feel even more welcome.      

This site will provide you a snapshot of our community on the topics we know are important to you. But this is where the discussion begins. The east half of Cody is eligible for special funding programs including the federal Opportunity Zones, New Market Tax Credits, and the Economic Development Administration in addition to our generous State programs. These programs can really accelerate project growth!


It's a simple formula - when you succeed, we succeed.
