Nestled in the heart of the Bluebonnet Trail, the city of Ennis is an exciting and distinctive community growing towards a bigger and better tomorrow. The 2017-2021 Ennis Community Improvement Plan, adopted on July 18, 2017, strikes a balance between critical infrastructure needs, ongoing development and a better quality of life for our residents, our visitors and our business community.
Implementation of this bold $110 million, five-year capital improvement plan contains major steps across the community that are redefining and changing the face of Ennis from a nice place to visit to the kind of city where families want to put down roots and large and small businesses want to invest, build and expand.
The Community Improvement Plan includes an extensive revitalization of the downtown and its century-old streets and infrastructure that is well underway, the building of a state-of-the-art police and fire services facility, two large retail/public space developments aligned north and south of the downtown and the ongoing preservation of our historic past.
Ennis’ star is surely on the rise, quickly gaining a reputation as the newest experiential destination with a world of investment and development opportunities – come be a part of something special!
