Avalanche Consulting is thrilled to announce the completion of Bastrop’s Economic Development Strategy. The strategy includes a competitive assessment, a target industry evaluation, local asset improvement tactics and a marketing plan.

The Austin-American Statesman wrote a three-part series about the Strategy:

Part 1 outlines the strategic planning process and target industries selected.

Part 2 provides an overview of recommendations for education and workforce, business climate, infrastructure, and quality of life that will improve Bastrop’s competitiveness.

Part 3 provides details about Bastrop’s target industries: Hospitality and Retail, Information Technology, Manufacturing, and Life Sciences.

Bastrop is a historic Texas community located in the beautiful piney woods of the Greater Austin metro. We believe this thriving, unique Texas community has potential to become a national model for innovative rural economic development.
