Message from the Chair

Tim ZippBy the time this quarterly e-newsletter of your Greater New Braunfels Economic Development Foundation is received, it will be May and the year will already be one-third over. Hard to believe! 

Our Quarterly Board and All-Member Luncheon held April 23 was well attended and featured two presentations on the May 4 City Bond Election. Read more about the four propositions in this edition of the e-newsletter.

Comal County once again ranked second fastest growing county in the nation (percentage basis) for 2017-18. Only Williams County, North Dakota was higher.  Since 2010,  Comal County has consistently ranked in the top six. Read more about this population growth and the impacts to our economic development efforts in this issue of the GNBEDF e-newsletter.

With growth comes the need to stay in front via spec buildings, and Titan Industrial Park is underway with another such property off FM 1101 next to CGT. Did you know the Stream-USAA property along I-35 is now all leased up? Read more about industrial buildings locally in our e-newsletter today.
A healthy economy is multi-faceted and New Braunfels is  running on all cylinders. The Quarterly Activities Report is included in this e-newsletter. We also feature an article on upcoming marketing missions by our staff and partners. 

My thanks to our member investors in the Foundation. For those reading this that are not yet members, now would be a great time to join our successful team!

2019 Chairman
