New Residents

A Welcome Message from Mayor Stephen E. Haynes

Welcome to Brownwood. Whether you are a visitor to our city, a newcomer, or a life-long resident our goal is to provide you with the information you need about our community. 

Brownwood is a thriving city located near the geographic center of Texas. Our location makes us the perfect spot for business and industry. As the largest city in a 70 mile radius, we are a regional employer and hub for all types of commerce, education and recreation.

Brownwood is also a great place to raise a family. We are in the northern edge of the hill country and enjoy rolling hills, trees and a large recreational lake. We are home to some of the best hunting and fishing in Texas. Our citizens enjoy all of these recreational perks with less than a ten minute commute to work.

 Our goal at the City of Brownwood is to promote health, safety and quality of life for our citizens. In recent years, we have constructed a family aquatics facility, new sport facilities for our youth, and a Senior Citizens Center among other similar projects. We are committed to progress and hope you will choose to be a part of our community. 

-Stephen E. Haynes
