Spend any time in Amarillo and you will quickly begin to feel the legacy that built this strong community. What was once a small “tent city” on the front edge of the frontier is now a thriving city where the grit and determination that pioneered this region still lives.
Amarillo was built on the shoulders of men and women committed to farming, ranching and oil exploration. Generations of families have dedicated themselves to growing this city on the high plains into what it boats today. Today, we are not just a community focused on agriculture and oil, but on technology, education and emerging industries.
The Amarillo Economic Development Corporation is dedicated to continuing the mission of the generations that have gone before us. We are focused on the growth of our community through the expansion of our economic base, which allows for enhanced opportunities for our residents.
