Thank you for choosing Perry as a place to do business!

Perry is growing rapidly and has more than 22,000 residents with an estimated 7% population growth rate since 2020. The City issues, on average, 40 single-family home building permits a month. The growth rate exceeds that of the State of Georgia and the U.S. Perry remains a place where people want to live and locate businesses and represents an increasingly significant consumer base.

The City continues to make sure Perry is a quality community in which to conduct business and an attractive community in which to grow or locate a new business. Always remember the City is here to serve you. I, and your Council Members, pride ourselves on our transparency and accessibility.

The City supports your success and we look forward to continuing to work with you. Businesses such as yours are the backbone of our local economy and we look forward to supporting you and your business.
