Kyle

The city of Kyle, in Hays County, is conveniently located seven miles south of the Austin city limits and 39 miles from San Antonio city limits in the fastest growing county in the nation. Kyle’s location adjacent to Interstate 35 creates an ease of access between both metros. Kyle has an affordable, available, and growing workforce, a quality education base, and the benefit of a strategic location in the heart of one of the fastest- growing corridors in the nation.

Kyle proactively addressed mobility improvements with several roadway and infrastructure projects over the past several years to support continued growth and development. Thanks to the city’s partnership with the Texas Department of Transportation and Hays County, Kyle has witnessed the transformation of much-needed Interstate 35 and major roadway improvements, as well as upgrades to bridges—further enhancing safety and easing congestion.

The city of Kyle is only 20% developed and has ample acreage of available property, an affordable cost of doing business, a favorable tax structure. With a goal of becoming a full-service community, Kyle actively seeks to greatly enhance and diversify the tax base with local employment. The past nine years have seen approximately one million square feet of newly constructed medical facilities. Seton Medical Center Hays, currently undergoing a $26 million expansion, sparked the growth in medical facilities, turning Kyle into a medical hub for specialty care. Austin Community College Hays Campus $22 million Phase II expansion will include a First Responder Training Facility. More than 47 new businesses opened in Kyle in 2017, contributing to the 10.75% increase over the prior year in sales tax revenue. Kyle strives to attract a diverse mix of companies, focusing on our target markets—high-tech manufacturing, destination recreation, and professional and business services— where the citizens can support their families and promote strong, balanced growth through-out the community that will complement the resources of the city and future growth.
