Type A Economic Development Board
The Type A Economic Development Board reviews plans and makes recommendations for the investment of the ½ cent Type A Economic Development sales tax for infrastructure projects.
The Type A EDC focuses on “brick and mortar” type projects which include, but are not limited to, the purchase of land, buildings, equipment, facilities expenditures, targeted infrastructure and other improvements. Examples of such projects are the Joshua Park & Ride, located next to the Joshua Community YMCA and much of the public infrastructure (drainage, streets, curbs and gutters, etc.) in the Joshua Station Overlay District (where the Park & Ride, YMCA and Brookshire’s are located). The Type A EDC also currently owns property that it can either development itself or use as a financial incentive to encourage private development.*
*Due to the city’s population size, the Type A EDC may conduct “Type B” eligible projects in limited circumstances.
