Economic Development
The economic and strategic benefits of Warrenton make it an ideal location for your business. Warrenton is the County Seat for Warren County and is established on a strong agricultural foundation with a light industrial sub-base. Warrenton is located off Interstate 70 within an hour drive of downtown St. Louis to the east, and the university town of Columbia, MO to the west. This central location makes it logistically ideal for transportation of goods. It also makes Warrenton a central refueling point for travelers headed to the large variety of area tourist attractions like the Lake of the Ozarks, the Missouri wine trails, and historical sites such as the Booneslick Trail and Daniel Boone home.

Whether a business is industrial or retail the Planning & Development Department works hard to create a pro-business environment to encourage businesses to pursue their economic ambitions in Warrenton.
