Welcome to the home of City Center Waco. We are a city-affiliated office charged with driving development and collaboration in what we call the “city center,” an area comprised of Downtown Waco and the surrounding neighborhoods.


We’re excited about the growth and future of Waco and we intend to make the most of the current momentum while adhering to the city’s vision for what Waco can be, working closely with the community and potential development partners, and clearing obstacles to progress.

Plan, Engage, Accelerate & Steer and Manage.


On this site, we aim to expound on our role and offer contact information to businesses and individuals who want to join us in our efforts to create and support a city center that all of Waco can be proud of.

Plan. Engage. Accelerate. Manage.

Projects Under Way

East Waco Riverwalk Completed

The new East Riverwalk extension between Franklin Avenue and McLane Stadium is now open to pedestrians and cyclists. The $5.7 million project opened more than 200 days ahead of schedule. Lighting, railing and signage are going up on the riverwalk, and a shade structure provides a gathering place at the midpoint of the extension. The extension completes a riverwalk connection between Brazos Park East and McLane Stadium.
