A Fast Growing Suburb of Austin

Round Rock, Texas is home to 104,000 people and drawing additional residents every day. This places it on the 2009 list of Best 25 Places to Move for Work in our nation. People and businesses seem to be flocking to Round Rock and there is still room for more.

Located just 15 miles away from Austin to the north, Round Rock is also the second fastest growing city in the USA. The city achieves this economic and quality-of-life victory through its ongoing City Master Plan for continued development. City fathers plan, implement, follow-up, adjust, for partnerships and more, ad infinitum. They are so good at this process that they have garnered various awards for innovative and successful Vision Planning. An effective City Transportation Plan is part of this success. The city school district is award-winning as well, crime is low compared to the rest of the US, and the cost of living is also comparatively low.

The Vision Plan extending to 2060 calls Round Rock The City of Coice for Talent.

Industry focus in Round Rock centers on Life Sciences, Computers and IT Technologies, Clean Energy, and Manufacturing.

One big drawing card since its opening in 2000 is the Dell Computer sponsored Dell Diamond stadium, home of the minor baseball league Round Rock Express team, affiliated with the Houston Astros as a farm team.
