Matagorda County wants to expand its industrial, agricultural, aquaculture and marine fisheries sectors. We have existing assests to support such expansions. We seek individuals or companies seeking opportunities in these sectors. In turn, such expansion will provide greater opportunities for retail, residential and service sector developers and builders. A few of our attractive features are:
- Large tracts of flat land
- Commercial barge service on the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway and the Colorado River
- Rail service by Union Pacific RR and Burlington Northern/Santa Fe RR
- An extensive pipline network carrying multiple products
- An educational "Grow our own skilled employees" program
- Skill development training for employees - grants available.
