Cedar Park, Texas is a city that espouses the core values of community, service, innovation, professionalism, integrity, leadership, and fiscal responsibility. These standards are at the heart of daily life for Cedar Park citizens, City leaders, City staff, and business leaders.

Located just 17 miles from downtown Austin, Texas, Cedar Park is a well-established community that was named for a park that was a rail stop in the late 1800s and was incorporated as a city in 1973. True to it's namesake, Cedar Park now features 47 city parks and 22 miles of trails. 

Today’s population is about 69,000, and Cedar Park has twice been ranked as the Fourth Fastest-Growing City in the country in recent years. It s a bustling, high-tech employer hub too. Residents' median age is 34.2 years, and a whopping 44.1 percent hold a bachelor's degree or higher. The average household income is $99,348. The City of Cedar Park attracts residents from all over the globe because of its unique charm, close proximity to Austin and the Texas Hill Country and the beauty surrounding the Lower Colorado River Lake System. There is truly something for everyone here. Whether it is hiking, bicycling, water sports, live music, great food, shopping or any other activity you enjoy, you will find in or very close to Cedar Park.

Cedar Park is home to two professional sports teams: the Texas Stars - the 2014 Calder Cup AHL Hockey League Champions and affiliates of the NHL Dallas Stars; the Austin Spurs - the NBA D-League team affiliates of the 2014 NBA World Champion San Antonio Spurs.

True to their city’s core values of community, service, innovation, professionalism, integrity, leadership and fiscal responsibility, Cedar Park City Council has lowered the property tax rate the last four consecutive years - the lowest tax rate in 13 years. Part of what helps keep the property tax rate low while allowing them to meet their citizens’ quality of life and service level expectations is local sales tax revenue. Two cents out of the 8.25 cents collected from every dollar spent from shopping and dining in Cedar Park goes right back into the community: one cent toward the city’s general fund and the other cent is divided between the city’s community development and economic development corporations. Additionally, Cedar Park recently earned a AA+ bond rating, which allows the city to pay down debt faster and at a lower interest rate – saving taxpayer dollars.
