The Lockhart Economic Development Corporation has been granted authorization to move forward with purchasing a 75-acre tract along SH 130 to develop an industrial park suitable for the types of tenants identified as targets in the city’s economic plan. The park would be the largest in Lockhart.
The new industrial park located near the intersection of SH 142 and FM 2720 will make shovel-ready sites available for purchase. The development of the 75-acre park is a key component of the Lockhart EDC’s new Target Industry Strategy adopted in October.
“Larger parcels of land are essential for Lockhart to compete for large economic development projects,” said Lockhart EDC Director Mike Kamerlander. “The Target Industry Strategy recommended Lockhart EDC acquire a site of 100 acres or more to develop its next industrial park. While this site is 75 acres initially, there is ample land around the site to expand in the future.”
