Project Sponsor: City of Taylor, Texas (Williamson County)
Project Team: Richard Tangum (PI), Bert Moyer, Ernest Gerlach
Collaborator: Rural Business Program – IED/UTSA
Completed: January 2017

The purpose of this study was to examine land areas within the existing city limits and extra territorial jurisdiction of Taylor that have potential for residential, commercial, office and industrial growth. Six growth areas were identified as existing and emerging growth sectors within the city’s jurisdiction after analysis by the staff of the Center for Urban and Regional Planning Research and Rural Business Program at the University of Texas at San Antonio. Each sector was evaluated with respect to suitability, of its land use potential with regard to existing physical infrastructure (roads, utilities, etc.), land use patterns and natural features (flood plains, topography).
