Economic Impact

Heritage Square provides a downtown that is perfectly positioned to meet the accelerating trend among consumers away from malls and back to traditional urban centers and smaller downtown "Main Street" type areas that offer an “interesting and enjoyable experience”.   Weatherford’s General Plan focuses downtown strategic planning toward its historic character as the foundation for compatible new development and the reuse space that will create walkable urban places for living, working and shopping that so many people find desirable for a contemporary lifestyle.

Potential economic growth within the downtown area over the next 20 years could include multi-story mixed use buildings with loft style living accommodations, small tenant retail space, new office and restaurant space.  It is estimated that downtown could see over 130 million dollars in new value created over the next few years.
