Transparency Star Economic Development

Economic Development Transparency

The Economic Development Transparency page is provided in an effort to increase transparency in the area of economic development and inform taxpayers about programs and incentives supported by tax dollars that are designed to attract industry and investment, create jobs and otherwise grow the economy. The City of Jersey Village strives to be an open government in all areas and is working to further develop information published for public viewing in the areas of finance, economic development, and debt obligations.

For more information on the City's designated Transparency pages, please visit our Transparency page.

Economic Development Summary

The City of Jersey Village is dedicated to achieving the highest quality of development, infrastructure, and quality of life for its citizens. Enhancing our local economy helps us to meet these objectives. Economic Development incentives are a vital component of how to grow our economy, because of the competitive nature of economic development not just from other communities locally, but throughout the state, country, and world. Jersey Village has a “pro-business” philosophy which is designed not only to attract high quality companies but to retain them as well. Furthermore, the City works to negotiate “win/win” incentive agreements, fully understanding the need for a fair and reasonable return on investment for our taxpayers on any agreement.

It is the City’s policy to attract new business and encourage new investments by utilizing Chapter 380 grants, as authorized by the Chapter 380 of the Texas Local Government Code, and Tax Abatements, as authorized by Chapter 312 of the Texas Tax Code.

As of the end of the 2019 Fiscal Year the City has no tax abatement agreements, and has had no tax abatement agreements for the previous five fiscal years.

Tax Increment Reinvestment Zones

The City created Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone Number 2 in July 2017. Tax Increment Reinvestment Zones (TIRZs) are special zones created by City Council to attract new investment in an area. These zones help finance costs of redevelopment and promote growth in areas that would otherwise not attract sufficient market development in a timely manner. Taxes attributable to new improvements (tax increments) are set-aside in a fund to finance various projects as approved in the TIRZ Plan.

The City is also required to submit an Annual Report on the TIRZ to the state. You can view the TIRZ Plan and Annual Reports by clicking on the appropriate link below.
