 Transportation and Economic Development Corporation
Print

A.W. Grimes BlvdThe Round Rock Transportation and Economic Development Corporation (sometimes called the Type B Corporation) is a seven-member citizen panel that promotes economic development within the City through transportation system improvements. In addition, the Corporation reviews and approves payments of maintenance and operating expenses associated with authorized projects approved by the Corporation.

Created in 1997, the Board promotes the improvement of streets, roads, drainage and other related transportation systems, including the maintenance and operating expenses associated with them. The Board finances projects by issuing bonds, notes and other forms of debt. Voters in 1997 approved the creation of the Type B Corporation and the levy of a half-cent sales tax to fund it.

In November 2011, voters approved the expansion of the use of Type B funds to include the uses allowed by State law.  This means that Type B funds are now used to promote economic development within Round Rock by offering incentive packages to companies when necessary while still using the majority of the funds on transporation projects on eligible roads through the City.

The Board develops, reviews and updates the City’s Transportation Capital Improvement Program to ensure the plan meets the community’s transportation needs. The Board reports to City Council each year no later than March 1.

The term ‚ÄúType B‚ÄĚ comes from the Texas State Law that establishes the criteria for such entities.
