Cocoa Ready to Launch
The City of Cocoa is working with local business owners to gather ideas and information on how they plan to safely re-open their businesses. Cocoa City Council approved a resolution to allow for the expansion of outdoor dining options and signage options to aid the economic recovery efforts of Cocoa Businesses and market the safe re-opening efforts of our local small businesses. In accordance with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ Florida Economic Recovery Plan, the City of Cocoa will work with local business owners to promote the safe re-opening of Cocoa businesses. As the State and City prepare to reopen and with guidance from the CDC and the Governor, this page will be updated with resources and tools to help our local business owners. Contact Angela Essing, Economic Development Manager at 321-433-8522 for more information.
