Economic Development & Initiatives

Elgin EDC's highest priority is recruiting quality retail, manufacturing, and warehouse distribution businesses to our community. From large tracts of land to pad sites, every real estate need can be met. A portion of Elgin is in Travis County and also in Bastrop County, one of the fastest growing counties in Texas.

Located 19 miles east of Austin & 9 miles east of SH 130 on Hwy 290, Elgin is:

  • 30 minutes from the center of downtown Austin
  • 30 minutes from Austin Bergstrom International Airport
  • 2 hours from Houston
  • 1.5 hours from San Antonio

The Elgin EDC, the City of Elgin and the Elgin Chamber of Commerce work together to ensure successful business expansion or relocation with:

  • Cash Incentives
  • Discounted Property
  • Property Tax Assistance
  • Small Business Assistance 

In addition to the City and Elgin Chamber, the EDC has local and regional partners that enhance our economic development through planning, marketing, tourism and shared resources. Contact us to find out more about these partnerships.
