Make our Community a better place for everyone.


Organized in 2014 by a small number of volunteer business owners and community minded residents, Choose Local First today welcomes locally owned and independent business partners, including citizens and government organizations to join in supporting the message of Choosing Local First. Choose Local First is open to all businesses that are at least 51% locally-owned and make their business decisions independently.

When residents and businesses contract, hire and purchase locally, they invest in the strength and success of our local community. Choose Local First brings neighbors together, encourages entrepreneurship and innovation, and puts the money we spend back into the vitality of our local communities.
