Economic Development

Lake City Rotary Clock on a pole


With a downtown reinvention and many other initiatives in the works, Lake City is bringing promise to our town and to the Pee Dee. For more than a century and a half, Lake City has undergone a Renaissance every few decades - a period when the city has bounced back from economic depression and found a way to thrive once again.

It's this resilience and positive spirit that is driving Lake City's new period of renewal - a communal spirit that promises to mark the beginning of Lake City's success for decades to come. Representatives from the city's various not-for-profit organizations have come together in a show of collaboration to create and build out a plan to bring many new economic opportunities to Lake City. Their goal: to create a place that's not only fun to visit, but that's an attractive place to grow a business, manage a successful career, raise a family, and make a life.

New in Lake City

There's nothing like an outdoor concert on a bright spring day or starry summer night - and now that our 36,372-square-foot Village Green featuring a 750-square-foot performance stage is complete, Lake City has so much music to look forward to! Located just behind Main Street, the Village Green is even more exciting because of what lies beneath it: a geothermal energy field that will power the town's surrounding buildings through modern sustainable design.
