I've heard if people emailing some city officials to voice their recommendations for who the city should go after to try and bring into town (aka best buy', heb etc). Who do you contact to give your view of who the city should try to recruit to the area? If it matters the towns I and others are interested in emailing are... Leander, cedar park and liberty hill. Thanks in advance.

Not sure how much the any municipality has do to with retail development and retail mix. HEB plans decades ahead, they have already purchased land in the Leander and Liberty Hill area but are "land banking" it until they feel the area is ready for development.

The Austin metro is high on the list of most national retailers for expansion but they work on their own timetables.

Otherwise, most municipalities have an economic development commission, I'd start there. Look at the website for the city run by the government itself.

Thank you.. I thought I saw something on austin impact news awhile back about round rock asking their residents what business and food places they would like to see come to the area- which led me to believe that there would be someone who reaches out to companies in an attempt to bring them to their town. I just can't seem to find the article or remember what/who in particular it said to reach out to about it.
