AUSTIN – Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller has honored the city as a Go Texan Certified Retirement Community (CRC).

The city's more than 25,000 residents enjoy a range of cultural and recreational opportunities, including a park along the Guadalupe River and the Sebastopol House Historic Site.

The Texas Department of Agriculture's (TDA) Go Texan CRC program was created to encourage retirement in Texas and, as a result, boost the state's economy. On average, migrant retirees contribute $732 million annually to the Texas economy. Additionally, retirees provide a dependable part- and full-time workforce and volunteer pool.

To become a certified retirement community, a city must complete a rigorous application process, including a retiree desirability assessment. The Go Texan stamp of approval ensures each certified community has demonstrated through its application that it can meet the living, employment/volunteer, health, entertainment, education, and safety needs of its citizens and visitors.​
