Local and County Incentives
City of Cibolo

Cibolo is committed to the promotion of quality development in all parts of the City and to improving the quality of life for its citizens. In order to meet these goals, the City Council will consider providing a property tax phase-in, sales tax rebates and other incentives to stimulate economic development in Cibolo and its Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ). The City will consider providing incentives to appropriate businesses in accordance with the procedures and criteria outlines in the Economic Development Incentives Policy. Prospective businesses are strongly encouraged to discuss potential incentives with City officials and staff members early in the stages of a development, since a project is not eligible for incentives under this Policy if a building or site development permit has been issued for the project before an incentive application is submitted and approved.

The Cibolo Economic Development Corporation staff is available to help in discussing and determining possible eligibility for the various incentives that are offered. Detail on eligibility and available incentives can be found below. For more information contact the Cibolo Economic Development Corporation at 210-658-9900 Ext 3119.


The following criteria must be met for an applicant to be considered eligible for property tax phase-in and any other economic development incentive.  Additional criteria for specific incentives are listed below under their individual description or with the issuing agency if not the City of Cibolo in this Policy: 

  1. The proposed development and/or redevelopment must create and maintain or retain at least 5 jobs, and/or
  2. An investment by the applicant of at least $75,000 in property improvements is required.
