Situated in the heart of the Austin-Round Rock Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), within minutes of AUS International Airport, Hutto offers the best of both worlds - big city amenities and sophistication, coupled with the laid-back, friendly atmosphere of a small town.
Hutto has been named the fastest growing community in Texas by the Texas State Data Center.
Hutto is one of the few areas in this region that has available land to develop. On top of the developed properties th roughout the City, the City is also partnering Titan Development and is building Innovation Business Park -- a 72 acre light industrial and business space. Approximately one million square feet will be realized in 10 years time. The development is breaking ground in Fall 2017 for 150,311 square feet of Phase 1 completion, which will house 1-4 tenants.
Additionally, the City is aggressively moving ahead on projects to preserve Downtown Hutto and to maintain it as a vital part of the City's economic base. In doing so, it is investing in improvements on East Street, adding additional parking for access to Downtown, sidewalks, streetscaping and new pavement.
In 2018, a mixed-use residential, business and retail site will emerge at the Co-Op District, extending Downtown into a vibrant place for Huttoans to live, work and play.
The City is also thinking long-range and is investing in infrastructure over the next 20 years by planned development of key Growth Corridors. West of 130, The City will be extending sewer line up Tradesman Park as we prepare for long-term annexation and kick-off new retail along Hwy. 79. Additionally, 1660 and CR 119 (Ed Schmidt) will see an extension of utilities to open up residential growth. The new high school and park will be major anchors of this development.
Along with the growth, comes a strong desire to keep the small-town sense of community alive and well, and we've done a great job of keeping true to that goal.
The City of Hutto’s Development Services is responsible for the development of a healthy and vibrant city with a strong economic base, superior job opportunities, multiple types of shopping areas, and a wide range of diversified housing opportunities for the citizens of Hutto.
We have codes and ordinances designed to help Hutto grow and businesses succeed. Together with the Hutto Economic Development Corporation and the Hutto Chamber of Commerce, the City of Hutto works with businesses interested in locating to Hutto and strives to help them to sustain success in the Hutto market through business retention strategies.
