What is the Texas STAR Program?
Texas STAR Documented Sites (Sites That Are Ready) is a program of the Texas Economic Development Council that verifies sites that meet the required criteria and are fully-documented as Sites That Are Ready for construction to begin. This program is our effort to provide as much critical information as possible - up front to help speed the decision making process for site selectors and industry leaders considering Texas for future development. We understand that speed to market means speed to profit; the quicker a company can begin operations the quicker it can begin selling or shipping goods.
With shorter timelines comes additional risk. A shorter timeline means less time for site investigation, or due diligence, relative to a potential development project. Site selection consultants and company executives have less time to evaluate property because of short time constraints.
