Ask The Mayor


D.J. Ory, MayorQ. -I've been told for months now that Hobby Lobby is going to be a new addition to the city. It was said to be done this month and built by Buccees, but have not seen or heard anything else. What is going on with that?


Answer - Thanks for your inquiry.


As a Terrell High School graduate and longtime resident, I am always enthusiastic about new development coming to town. We work hard at the City to create an investment-friendly environment and to attract new businesses to our City.


Unfortunately many of these efforts require confidentiality on behalf of the City and Economic Development Corporation. Businesses need to negotiate land purchases, get approval from out of town corporate headquarters, secure estimates on a general contractor and building supplies, and, in some instances, assess other businesses who may also be coming as part of a cooperative effort. Throughout this process, the City has to be respectful of the prospective business.


Therefore, we do not confirm or deny or provide timetables on any particular businesses. It's a critical element to encourage those businesses to locate here in Terrell. As a general rule, we only make announcements when a
business receives a building permit to begin construction.





D.J. Ory, Mayor
