We want residents and businesses to understand that where they spend their money affects them.
“Love Lufkin” is a movement encouraging local residents and businesses to take ownership of our community by investing locally.
Everyone – residents, businesses, non-profits, governmental entities – can partner in the county’s economic development by re-circulating money within our community as much as possible.
There is an advantage to spending money with local businesses over ordering goods and services online. There is value to putting your money where your heart is – Lufkin.
Spending money locally allows your money to be reinvested within the community, leading to increased tax revenue.
Increasing sales tax revenue is a vital step in funding public services without raising other taxes.
Community investment helps maintain real estate values. Local businesses give back to the community in many different ways. By encouraging local investment, we are supporting local business owners who in turn donate money and time to the many different organizations that help make Angelina County such a wonderful place to live.
Show your love, share your love and shop, eat, live for Lufkin. #LoveLufkin
