Economic Development

Economic Development Services


The City of Angleton is a pro-business community with a retail trade area of approximately 73,000 people, looking to partner with retail and commercial business to help both entities be successful. Incentives are approved on a case-by-case basis but may include tax abatement, sales tax rebates, and tax increment reinvestment zones. 


Development Incentive Program


In 2013, City Council approved a development incentive program for new construction of homes, retail and commercial businesses that rebates property taxes.  This was done in response to the growing industrial climate south of Angleton to help locate new families and new businesses here. 

Our office is the 1st point of contact for information regarding new projects and activities and will set up a pre-development meeting with all needed department heads at your convenience.  We assist site selection consultants, developers, brokers, and businesses with relocation and expansion in all facets of community development and help walk your project through all city departments to ensure timely service.
