Conroe Industrial Development Corporation

The Conroe Industrial Development Corporation (CIDC) is a Type B non-profit development corporation operating under Texas Local Government Code Chapters 501, 502 and 505. The corporation is operated under the supervision of the Conroe City Council and acts to promote economic development in the City of Conroe. Revenue from a one-half cent sales tax levied by the City for the benefit of the corporation provides incentive funding to attract new and expanded business in the City and has also funded the development of the CIDC owned Conroe Park North Industrial Park. More recently the CIDC has undertaken a project to develop the R. A. "Mickey" Deison Technology Park on 250 acres adjacent to the Lone Star Executive Airport.

The CIDC is governed by a seven member board of directors led by Chairman George Waggoner. The board includes City Council Members Seth Gibson, Duke Coon, and Guy Martin as well as Mayor Toby Powell. Directors Keaton Hineman and Alfred Anderson complete the seven member panel.

Conroe City Administrator Paul Virgadamo is the President of the CIDC and City Finance Director Steve Williams serves as Treasurer. City Attorney Marcus Winberry acts as Secretary of the corporation.

The CIDC works in partnership with the Greater Conroe Economic Development Council (GCEDC) to attract and retain business in the City of Conroe.  Fred Welch is the Executive Director of Economic Development.
