The Burkburnett Development Corporation (BDC) was chartered August 18, 1997, under the Development Corporation Act of 1979 as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation. The corporation was organized exclusively for the City of Burkburnett, to promote and expand economic development efforts within our city.

The corporation is funded by a one-half of one percent local sales tax. Sales tax collected under the Development Corporation Act allows for the proceeds to be expended on land, buildings, equipment, facilities and improvements for items that fit under the definition of a “project”. Today, the BDC is committed as ever to improve the quality of life and environment for the citizens of Burkburnett.
