Peterson Pulaski Business & Industrial Council
The Peterson Pulaski Business and Industrial Council (PPBIC) is a not-for-profit economic development organization that assists in the retention and development of companies in the Peterson Pulaski Industrial Park and the Elston Armstrong Industrial Corridor. We serve as a liaison between the City and local industrial firms that may benefit from city services, programs and special projects.
We determine needs and provide information on resources that contribute to economic development and address the industrial park objectives — that it is safe, functional and accessible, marketable and competitive, attractive, and manageable.
We aid in the expansion of firms and seek new industrial businesses for our area, and we encourage connections between the businesses and the adjacent community.

TIFWorks 50/50 is designed to offset the cost of training both existing and newly hired employees by rebating 50% of pre-approved training up to roughly $10,000.
