Economic Development Strategy

A group of public, private, and non-profit leaders in the Brazos Valley have come together around a strategic planning process in order to make the region a more prosperous, successful, and vibrant place to live, work, and do business. The Brazos Valley Economic Development Strategy will be a comprehensive, actionable, and consensus-based plan to guide the community’s collective actions in the years to come.
The Brazos Valley has experienced strong growth in recent years thanks to assets such as a business-friendly outlook and an ambitious research institution, Texas A&M University. But best-practice communities around the country recognize that to be most effective, economic development activities must be intentional, collaborative, and holistic. This process will look at the full range of factors that influence the region’s competitiveness – including talent, education and training, quality of life and place, and so on – to “connect the dots” between various community and economic development efforts in a more cohesive way, maximizing their impact and improving effectiveness.
The Brazos Valley Economic Development Corporation has convened the process on behalf of the region, and funding has been provided by Brazos County, the City of Bryan, the City of College StationTexas A&M University, and the private sector. A diverse Steering Committee comprised of leaders from the public, private, and non-profit sectors will guided a nine-month process and ensured that it laid the foundation that will allow people and businesses to thrive and wealth to accumulate in the community.
