The City of Midland enters into economic development agreements to promote development and redevelopment within the City, generate additional sales tax revenues, enhance our property tax base, and improve the quality of life for our citizens. These programs abate or rebate property taxes, hotel occupancy tax, and sales tax and include economic incentive programs and/or reductions in fees that are not tied to taxes. The City's economic development agreements are authorized under Chapter 380 of the Texas Local Government Code. Eligible projects must be located within the city limits of Midland, Texas. All applications are subject to final approval by Midland City Council.
For more information on economic incentives and the application process visit the Midland Development Corporation website. To apply, please see the City of Midland 380 Application Form. Please send completed applications to Sara Harris, MDC Executive Director. If you have questions or need assistance, please email or call (432) 253-8018.
Chapter 380 Economic Development Agreements
House Bill 2404, passed by the 87th Texas Legislature, instructs the Comptroller's office to create and make accessible an online Chapter 380 and 381 Local Development Agreement Database containing information regarding all state-local development agreements.
HB 2404 also requires local governments to provide the Comptroller's office with the information required by Government Code Sec. 403.0246(c) and the agreements they have entered into, amended, or renewed within 14 days so the information may be made available on the Comptroller's website.
