New housing developments important to area’s growth

New housing developments by companies such as Bold Fox Development and Lynn Develop-ment in Bay City are vitally important to the growth for Matagorda County.

“It’s extremely important, just ask a real estate professional and they will tell you that the number of houses on the market are limited. The houses on the market are older and most need a lot of work. We have Tenaris, STP, and many of our industrial partners hiring professionals and college graduates that have a style of house and a quality of life that they have enjoyed in other areas. We must duplicate that model with new homes and master planned communities. That is one reason we are losing people that work in Matagorda County but chose to live in another County. Having houses and subdivisions and different developments are important so the new families have op-tions,” said Mitch Thames, president of the Bay City Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture.
