The Liberty Hill Economic Development Corporation will soon have a new home at 806 Main St. in downtown Liberty Hill.
The EDC closed on the property in mid-November. Economic Development Director Mary Poche said the purchase was on par with market rates in the downtown area of Liberty Hill.
“The EDC views it as an investment for future use as well,” she said.
Poche added the new space is also important for the EDC because Liberty Hill is seeing more and more site visits as the area grows.
“This property was good for us, because it’s a small house with an office set up,” she said. “Because we are getting more site visits, we need a place to meet confidentially.”
Currently, Poche offices out of the Stubblefield Visitors Center, alongside the parks and recreation department and the Liberty Hill Chamber of Commerce.
“No renovations are needed as it has been remodeled and is move in ready,” Poche said. “We will likely move over sometime in December.”
Poche added that the additional space is also necessary because she recently proposed the hiring of a full-time economic development coordinator to assist her with the increased projects coming to Liberty Hill.
