Marble Falls Economic Development Corporation - Economic Development
Marble Falls, Texas has garnered more than its share of press and praise over the years, but the community located about an hour upstream of Austin on the Colorado River still feels somewhat undiscovered. People who know the area tend to love it, but many (if not most) are protective of the postcard-pretty town admired for its rolling terrain, holiday cheer, and Pie Happy Hour. Christian Fletcher, Executive Director of the Marble Falls Economic Development Corporation since 2011, counts himself as one of the town’s biggest fans.
“It’s really rare to find a town that has as much character and charm as Marble Falls,” says Fletcher, “especially when you consider how close we are to Austin and San Antonio and how much growth and development has occurred over the last decade or so. We’re expanding housing opportunities to complement a great arts scene, wineries, golf, state parks, you name it. The Texas Hill Country is the place to be.”
Fletcher and his wife, Kathy, grew up in Marble Falls and returned home to raise their two sons around all four of their grandparents, as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and long-time family friends. Deep roots are common but not required in Marble Falls.
