Pro-Business Leadership

Terrell America is Ready When You’re Ready

Terrell has a creative and focused business climate where community leadership embraces development without the big-city red tape that can choke the energy out of any enterprise. Terrell has everything your company needs to grow and prosper. We have taken all of the necessary steps to ensure that we are prepared for future retail, industrial and housing growth.

Our accomplishments include:

  • Enterprise Zones
  • New Business Parks
  • Shovel Ready Sites From 5-40 Acres
  • Tax Abatement/Triple Freeport
  • Airport Renovation and New Construction
  • Major Road Improvements at Interstate 20/Spur 557 Interchange
  • Major Infrastructure Improvements
  • Largest Rural TIF District in Texas
  • Creation of a New Power Center For Retail Development

In May of 1990, the citizens of Terrell voted a $.005 cent increase in sales tax to fund economic development. December of 1990 saw the first deposits to the fund that generates approximately $550,000 per year for construction of roads, water and sewer lines, grants and low interest loans. The key factors in the expenditure of funds are new jobs created and total project investments. The sales tax deposits have continued to grow each year with the 2014 revenues expected to top $2 million.

During the past several years, Terrell has seen the addition of 3,673 new jobs created, 30 new industries, 11 expansions of existing companies and 3 existing buildings purchased along with $421 million added to the tax roles.
