Procedures for the Consideration on New Development Projects Within the City
The City of Snyder (“City”) will consider the use of economic development incentives to promote new development and redevelopment where it can be demonstrated that an increase in tax revenue can be reasonably expected and the overall quality of life of the people who live or work in the City can be improved. This policy is applicable to any project within the City that requests economic development incentives from the City. For those proposed developments that meet the goals and criteria of the City, the City is willing to consider any applicable economic development tools authorized for use by cities in Texas. The purpose of establishing these procedures is to establish a common understanding and consistent approach to guide developers/owners, the City and the general public through a standardized process for the review of economic development proposals requested in the City. Please review the list of the Procedures for Development within the City when requesting Incentives.

Development Services and Project Sequencing
The City of Snyder also provides Development Services for those entities not requesting economic incentives to assist with their development projects. Please review the Development Services and Project Sequencing to assist in planning and completing your projects within the City of Snyder or within the ETJ (Extraterritorial jurisdiction) within Scurry County.
