Welcome to Hutto, Texas. A fastgrowing and vibrant business location, Hutto has undergone a transformation over the past decade from a sleepy, rural Texas farm town of 1,250 to Austin’s fastest growing suburb with a population of over 23,000 people. The impetus for Hutto’s exponential growth has been quality, affordable housing and excellent public schools coupled with the opening of State Highway 130 on the new Central Texas turnpike system. Low crime, great schools, affordable real estate, moderate taxes, and convenient access to the Austin region and the rest of the state have resulted in honors, such as being named one of the “Top 100 Places in Major Markets to Locate Your Business” by Southern Business & Development magazine, as well as a host of other accolades. Hutto is one of the few communities in Central Texas that has planned and developed a long-term water supply strategy. Hutto owns a 27-mile waterline to a stable water source in the Carrizo Wilcox Aquifer. Additionally, Hutto has aggressively developed water and wastewater infrastructure to accommodate myriad economic development projects. One of the assets to the Hutto community is the East Williamson Country Higher Education Center- Hutto. This innovative, multi-institutional teaching center is located on 57 acres adjacent to State Highway 130. A 113,000-square-foot building houses both Texas State Technical College and Temple College, bringing a blend of academic and technical training opportunities to the Central Texas region. Texas A&M University-Central Texas joined the East Williamson County Higher Education Center in spring 2014 and offers full bachelor’s and master’s degree programs.
