    “The creation of Opportunity Zones is one of the most significant provisions of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act. Incentivizing private investment into these low-income communities can be transformational, stimulating economic growth and job creation across the country, This Administration will work diligently with states and the private sector to encourage investment and development in Opportunity Zones and other distressed communities so that they may enjoy the benefits of robust economic growth.”

Nacogdoches with over 20 miles of I-69 Corridor located in our Opportunity Zone is the perfect host for manufacturing plants.

    (NAK-ə-DOH-chiss) is a town north of Houston located on the I-69 corridor. It is a town of 33,000 permanent residents, but its 13,000 college students at SFA support a small city infrastructure of restaurants, bars, and shopping. It’s home to large chain retailers including Lowes, Wal-Mart, and Staples and also chain restaurants such as Chipotle and Panda Express. In 2017, the beloved Fredonia Hotel & Convention Center reopened its doors to the public, showing off a complete overhaul of modern renovations. The Hotel is now a tourist destination, featuring two bars, a restaurant, a high end steakhouse and two pools.  SFA students and their families keep the economy flowing and several start-ups have found success in Nacogdoches. Locally grown companies that have expanded nationally continue to keep their headquarters in town.  There’s plenty to do here on your downtime with busy weekend downtown events that include the Wine Swirl event to The Texas Blueberry Festival.  We might be partial, but we think Nacogdoches is the greatest place to live.
