Economic Development

The Anna Economic Development Corporation (EDC) works in cooperation with the Community Development Corporation (CDC) to coordinate efforts that expand the city's business tax base with a focus on creating primary jobs within the City of Anna. The corporations have provided incentives that resulted in much of the retail development that has occurred in Anna since 2008. The EDC was instrumental in recruiting Brookshires Grocery Company, CVS pharmacy, McDonalds, and Walmart. The EDC owns and operates Inc-Cube, a small business incubator located in our downtown.  The corporations cooperatively purchased an 85 acre tract of land at the northeast corner of highway 5 and the Collin County Outer Loop with the intent of developing a business park.

  • Effectively market our community brand
