The mission of the Bastrop Economic Development Corporation is to be a driving force to attract, support, and sustain the economic growth of the Bastrop Community.
Ideally located, Bastrop is just a short 30-minute drive from downtown Austin and 20-minutes from the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. Bastrop is perfectly situated for companies looking to expand into the Texas market.
The Art Institute, Ascension Seton Medical and JAMCo Construction are just a few of the companies that have moved to Bastrop. These companies and others are taking advantage of the abundance of commercial land and affordable shovel-ready sites. Bastrop’s tax, land and financial incentives make it an attractive prospect to all businesses seeking to relocate in an area with rural charm and urban growth.
Families enjoy living in Bastrop because of its vibrant historic downtown that features live music, shops, pubs, and access to the Colorado River. Families are moving to Bastrop because it costs less to live here than in the surrounding metropolitan areas. There is always something going on in Bastrop!
