Economic Development

 

Hitchcock, at the gateway to the Golden Gulf Coast, is an ideal location for easy access to retail and industrial center, recreation, education and medical facilities. This serene residential community is a great place to raise a family or to enjoy a tranquil retirement.

Highland Bayou and the Diversionary Canal flow through the city: the Bayou to Jones Lake and the Canal to Galveston Bay. A public boat ramp in town provides access to the Diversionary Canal. As the waterways meander to the open waters, they pass the popular resort community of Bayou Vista and the exclusive waterfront development of Harborwalk.

Located on State Highway 6 just south of Interstate 45, Hitchcock is only 20 minutes from Galveston and approximately 35 minutes from Houston. Hitchcock's strategic location makes it the hub of the greater Gulf Coast area, an asset that offers unlimited potential for future growth. Major shopping malls, hospitals, colleges, and recreational facilities are only minutes away.
