In 2012 the City of Gatesville approved the establishment of the Gatesville Economic Development Board. This group serves as an advisory board to the City Council in matters dealing with economic development. The Gatesville Economic Development Board encourages an environment that supports retention of local businesses, improves business conditions and fosters growth. Our goal is to provide a pro-active climate to business and industrial markets as well as to initiate strategies for tourism.
The Gatesville Economic Development Board members are appointed by the City Council of the City of Gatesville. The board is made up of seven members with a majority of members living inside the city limits. The board members serve a two year term on a staggered basis. Monthly meetings are conducted on the third Monday of the month, 3pm at Gatesville City Hall located at 110 North 8th Street.
