Jacksboro will be an oasis among other cities of Northwest Texas - a vibrant, economically secure community, well known for its natural and historic treasures; a locally led community that absorbs and maintains its growth by hospitality and a welcoming nature - while keeping its unique sense of place.
Jacksboro EDC will implement the vision, with an emphasis on land use, transportation, entrepreneurship, tourism and the environment, for the purpose of job creation and increasing the wealth of the people of Jacksboro.
The Jacksboro Economic Development Corporation is a willing partner for expanding a growing local business, assisting a new entrepreneurial start-up, or bringing a new business to the community. Job creation is our goal, and we are ready to listen to your ideas and proposals.
The JEDC Board of Directors comprised of Kate Mower, President; Jerry Graybill,Vice-President; Mike Thornton, Treasurer; Lisa Perry, Secretary; Tony Thomas, board member; Brad Bouldin, board member; and Brent Hackley, board member, are all committed to an economic development strategy that retains the small town values that distinguish Jacksboro life, encourages cooperation between the city and county governments, and strives for diversification of the economic base.
The board and the executive director, Lynda Pack, set priorities and goals on a yearly basis, following the five year Strategic Plan as the road map to our successful growth and community improvement.
