The city of Blanchard has created an environment where public/private partnerships expedite both the timing and profitability of investments in the community. A main street beautification project has been completed and infrastructure is being improved to handle the rise in population. The newly widened and renovated US-62 highway ensures convenience and quick access for patrons of new and existing businesses. The city of Blanchard is actively seeking additional retail development to fill identified product and service gaps and offers retail incentives. The city administration understands the necessity for public-private partnerships to facilitate retail development and works to make the development process as streamlined as possible. A new TIF District creation is underway for commercial development.
