Downtown Incentives

In March 2012, the Hutto City Council approved the Downtown Incentive Program to enhance economic development within Old Town. It provides two types of incentives, one for new construction and one targeting new businesses that locate in the City’s historic area. These incentives can also be applied to any new businesses that started in the historic area since October 1 of 2011. Chapter 380 agreements will be utilized as the primary type of agreements between the parties and the City.After-Katie James Photography
