Rosenberg Development Corporation

The Rosenberg Development Corporation (RDC) was created by election in 1995. It is a Type-B economic development corporation funded by a one-half cent sales tax. State law authorizes the RDC to engage in projects related to primary job creation. Primary jobs are jobs that infuse new dollars into the local economy by creating or selling a product or service that is ultimately exported to regional, state, national or international markets. The RDC is comprised of a seven-director board. Four of the members, including all officers, are appointed by the Rosenberg City Council, and the remaining three members are City Councilors.

More information about the RDC can be found on the Rosenberg Development Corporation Website.

In January 2015, Rosenberg was named one of two 2015 Main Street cities by the Texas Historical Commission, joining 88 other active Main Street cities across the state, in the program designed to assist with downtown revitalization through organization, design, promotion, and economic restructuring in the context of historic preservation.

The Texas Main Street Program is a revitalization program for historic downtown and neighborhood commercial districts that has been assisting communities for over 30 years. Local Main Street programs receive a wide range of services and technical expertise from the state office in design and historic preservation, planning, economic development, organizational management and training. The program stimulates private sector downtown reinvestment; and helps retain, expand and recruit businesses to downtown areas.

Texas was one of the first states to begin a state coordinating program, and the Texas Main Street Program is affiliated with the National Main Street Center, a subsidiary of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

The Rosenberg Main Street Program is managed by a full-time local Main Street Manager, Jackie Wehring, and governed by a Main Street Advisory Board of volunteers which coordinates projects and activities through four volunteer committees: Design, Economic Vitality, Organization, and Promotion.
