From today’s Austin American-Statesman:
These moves still require City Council to approve incentives in a couple of weeks, but Austin and Central Texas continue to attract growth and investment. Moreover, in my opinion, these kinds of companies are the “right” businesses.
The challenge is growing without sacrificing Austin’s wonderfully unique culture and lifestyle. There are a lot of people here who think we already missed that boat, but I think we’ve done pretty well, as evidenced by the fact that these young, leading edge firms continue to find the area attractive.
