About the JECDB

The Joint Economic & Community Development Board of Wilson County, Tennessee is a governmental economic development agency. The communities of Mt. Juliet, Lebanon, Watertown and Wilson County comprise the JECDB and participate in funding of the organization. The JECDB is focused on industrial, office, retail and business recruiting. The recruiting efforts are part of a strategic plan to increase and diversify the overall tax base of Wilson County.

In addition, the JECDB serves the existing business base for all of Wilson County through business retention efforts and expansion efforts. Much of these efforts are accomplished through the Industry Alliance Partnership and serving as an information source for local businesses.
