Your Foundation board and membership convened April 20 for an in-person quarterly meeting.  It was great to see everyone gathered, and to do so safely.  Our particular thanks to Texas Economic Development Council President and Comal County native son Carlton Schwab for providing the keynote.

With the pandemic waning, we are seeing ever increasing activity, and it is exciting to see some projects --- previously delayed --- that are now moving ahead full steam.  One such example is the new Continental Automotive plant now underway off Kohlenberg Road near the Wal Mart DC.  An official groundbreaking is planned in mid-June now that German officials can travel to the event. This is a great win for this wonderful community of ours, and you can learn more about this high-tech facility in today’s e-newsletter.

Other exciting news is TaskUs relocating their corporate headquarters to New Braunfels from Santa Monica, California.  More information on that company is part of our e-newsletter today, as well as the regional economic development strategy recently released by our friends at the San Antonio EDF.  And so critically important in this digital age of ours, faster internet speed and better affordability is coming our way thanks too recent action by the city council and NBEDC!

All that, as well as a projects update and activities report, are included inside this issue.  It’s going to be a great summer in New Braunfels and around the state of Texas!
