Incentivized Capital Investment and Job Creation
The City of Temple actively engages in a comprehensive business retention and recruitment effort to improve the economic wellbeing and quality of life of a community by creating and retaining jobs, diversifying the economy, and building the local tax base.
The tax base that is created through this growth and investment is used by the City of Temple to provide services such as police, fire & rescue, parks & recreation, and library services. The increased tax revenue also funds community projects and local infrastructure.
Better infrastructure, services, and more jobs improve the economy of our region and enhances the quality of life for our residents.
