The St. Mary’s County Department of Economic Development (DED) welcomes you to St. Mary’s County, Maryland.

The Department's three divisions include Tourism, Agriculture & Seafood, and Business Development. DED works with citizen-led boards and commissions to identify and meet challenges. The staff also coordinates with other county, regional, state, and federal agencies to promote and expand markets and encourage investment. The Department produces an annual Technology Handbook, a listing of available office/building/land sites, tourism brochures written for many audiences, and participates in several key events throughout the year.
