Economic Development Action Plan

Azle’s Municipal Development District (MDD) Board and the Azle Chamber of Commerce Economic Development Committee met in a joint meeting in May 2016 to develop an action plan with specific goals that will assist the City in achieving long-term economic development potential. The MDD Board reviewed the draft plan at their June meeting and adopted the plan at their August meeting.

Hotel Feasibility Study

Due to a lack of adequate hotel room availability within the City of Azle, the Municipal Development District (MDD) commissioned an analysis of the current hotel market and demand to determine the feasibility of adding another hotel within the city. In June 2016, David Parker with DP Consulting performed a thorough market analysis and submitted a report to the MDD.

Azle Downtown Plan

In 2009, the City of Azle retained the professional services of GSBS Architects to study a 200 acre section of Downtown Azle, bordered by the southern intersection of Main Street and State Highway 199 (SH199), SH199 Frontage Road to the northern intersection of SH199 and Main Street, along Azle Highway to the east bank of Ash Creek to south Stewart Street and back to Main.

In preparation for the study, meetings were held with property and business owners, not-for-profit organizations, Chamber of Commerce representatives and Azle ISD officials to gain knowledge of their vision for the future of Main Street.
