Economic development efforts in Schertz, TX are focused on taking advantage of the rapid growth within the region, along with the pro-business mindset toward business retention and attraction efforts.

Titan Development, Investment and Development Ventures (IDV), Core 5, Boomerang Interests, and Lovett Commercial are currently planning for more than 7 million square feet of distribution space at ideal locations.

The forward-thinking Schertz City Council and Schertz Economic Development Corporation (Schertz EDC) Board are working to align their goals to benefit residents. Infrastructure improvements to a large-scale retail development promises shopping and dining opportunities that will allow sales taxes to be collected by the city and the corporation for years to come.

The Schertz EDC also has plans to complete several roadway projects that will make the transportation framework within the city efficient for expanding and existing businesses.

The recent completion of the Tri County Parkway—a major commercial thoroughfare—has paved the way for the next project.

Engineering and construction of Lookout Road has been financed and will result in an upgrade to a major arterial for a large warehouse distribution region of the city.

The Schertz EDC has also funded an expansion of Ripps Kreusler Road, an integral portion of the city’s future transportation network, as well as opened a large area of the city for development.

Finally, much attention has been given to the historic Main Street portion of Schertz, TX.

There are plans for an extensive revitalization project to improve the roadway and add sidewalks and decorative streetlights. Utility upgrades also are expected in this region of the city. No matter the project, the City of Schertz has an ideal site.
