Economic Development

Mineral Wells is the location in North Central Texas for your business relocation or expansion. This outstanding community is located just 40 minutes west of the Dallas - Fort Worth Metroplex allowing easy access to resources without the many problems associated with larger cities.
Mineral Wells / Palo Pinto County Area Growth Council
In 1993, four local agencies decided to join efforts in their common goal of economic development. The City of Mineral Wells, Palo Pinto County, the Mineral Wells Industrial Foundation and the Mineral Wells Area Chamber of Commerce agreed to form the Mineral Wells / Palo Pinto County Area Growth Council (AGC). A steering committee made up of a representative from each agency plus an at-large member oversees and guides the activities of the AGC. Please contact the AGC Director, Steve Butcher, to discuss any questions that you might have about opportunities in the Mineral Wells area.

Responsibilities and Goals
The goals and responsibilities of the AGC are:
  • To provide services for business placement and relocation or recruitment of new industries
  • To provide services for retention and expansion of existing manufacturers
  • To provide direction and financial assistance to the ongoing industrial development effort
