Who is the Mexia EDC?
Mexia Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) is a citizen volunteer group appointed by the Mexia City Council. We are a not for profit (4B) Economic Development Corporation funded by a voter approved one half-cent dedicated sales tax. MEDC recognizes the need to attract business and industry and actively promotes the area to new and expanding businesses. MEDC also acts in an advisory capacity to City Council in matters concerning economic development projects, including financial incentives.
What Do We Do?
MEDC is focused to increase quality of life for our community through: richer job opportunities that come from commercial development, diverse options in retail, restaurant, and service providers, and investment in the community that will improve the standard of living for all of our residents. MEDC works collaboratively with the private sector to develop high quality, sustainable commercial development.
MEDC provides long range guidance and encouragement to existing and expanding businesses which have been the strength of Mexia for many years. Looked upon as a marketing arm of the city, MEDC is ready and eager to assist existing businesses in expanding in this area which is ripe for development.
