Flowood is a unique city with a lot to offer, and we're proud to share it with you.
Many things combine to create a "quality life" in a city, and we've always believed that our local city government should work closely with our civic and business communities to create a climate that is favorable to all.
Flowood is fortunate to be positioned on a major state highway, near the Interstate Highway System, and adjacent to the Jackson-Evers International Airport. Our community and those nearby enjoy prosperity and excellent educational opportunities.
The Board of Aldermen have been dedicated to working with the Mayor's office to demonstrate a pro-business, pro-family philosophy. We believe that what is good for families is good for businesses, and what is good for businesses can benefit families as well.
Looking ahead, we're happy to see a lot of good things happening in Flowood. In spite of national economic difficulties, we anticipate continued growth. And every opportunity for growth is viewed as an opportunity to improve the quality of life for our residents, and for our corporate citizens.
Please come and visit our City - we're looking forward to having you.
Welcome to Flowood!
The Flowood Chamber and Visitors Center celebrated its tenth anniversary in April 2015. The Chamber is very active in both the business and social segments of Flowood life. Our Chamber is creative and energetic. It plays important roles in both supporting our local businesses and in marketing Flowood to potential businesses, residents and shoppers.
Flowood has a unique sense of community, and the Chamber is a vital part of that. We are a small city, so we wear a lot of hats - meeting and visitor assistance, business development, hospitality services, included. The Chamber of Flowood is simply an organization of business men and women who work in partnership with private, public and community sectors to promote the civic and commercial progress of the city. The economic well-being of Flowood is directly related to the caliber of work that is produced by the volunteers serving through the Chamber.
The Chamber of Flowood renders services to benefit its members as well as the community as a whole - so if you're visiting and have a question, we'll be happy to help you.
The city of Flowood Police Department is a service-oriented department that is committed to providing the quality of service that the citizens, merchants, shoppers and visitors deserve. This is done by utilizing both time-tested methods and new innovative approaches to crime prevention and enforcement.
The city of Flowood enjoys a low crime rate that is directly attributed to professional, dedicated employees and state of the art equipment. In addition a strong support of city leaders and a great community partnership, allow the department the resources needed to serve the city.
We will continue to strive in our efforts to keep the City of Flowood the best place to live, work, shop, and raise our children.

The mission of the Flowood Fire Department is to provide excellent fire protection and emergency medical services to our customers, the residents and visitors of the City of Flowood. In addition to providing fire protection and medical assistance to our community, the department also offers a full spectrum of services such as Fire Inspections, Fire Code Enforcement and Fire Safety Education programs designed to meet the need of an ever growing community.
We believe that education and information sharing is the foundation to having a safe and productive community. We are committed to our mission by way of internal and external development initiatives for our fire department personnel. Indeed it is an investment in our future! This goal is accomplished through intensive hands-on training and continuing education. Our firefighters are some of the brightest individuals with a strong commitment to helping our neighbors regardless of the need. Every member considers it an honor and privilege to be a part of the Flowood Fire Department because it allows us the opportunity to serve our fellow man. For many firefighters, this is more than a job, it is a dream come true.

The City of Flowood has made its public parks and outdoor facilities a priority in its long-term planning, and the efforts have really paid off. Our public amenities have made the City a showcase for excellence - in fact, elected officials from all across the south travel here to see what Flowood has done, and take our ideas and achievements back home to their communities.
Public spaces like Winner's Circle Park, the Flowood Nature Park, the ballfields at Liberty Park, and our widespread bike trails allow everyone in Flowood to experience all the natural beauty Central Mississippi has to offer!

MyFlowood.com's editorial mission is to exchange good news about our community. Beneath the layers of headlines and sensationalism of the established media, we find people making a real difference in the quality of life for us all - good citizens working to make good things happen
They do things that make a town a genuine "home". They volunteer their time to help the disadvantaged, they serve in our local government, and build businesses that create jobs and prosperity. At the home-town level, these individuals often make a bigger difference in our daily lives than the big headline stories, but rarely get exposure for their work. It's our mission to bring these good works to the forefront, with the hopes of gaining support for their efforts, and thereby building a stronger community spirit through awareness of each other.
Our business mission is to provide a web and social media presence dedicated to "Connecting Commerce and Consumers" in our local areas. The concept is unique in that it focuses on the exchange of information between the municipality, local commercial interests and the local consumer population.
