Texas Certified Retirement Communities- Athens, Lufkin and Nacogdoches First Counties To Get it

I mention this because last year Judge Maynard mentioned that Somervell County had applied to be a retirement community. I expect, although I don't know for sure, that he was referring to this program.

Athens, Lufkin and Nacogdoches County - three of the East Texas' most populous areas - are the state's first Texas Certified Retirement Communities. That seal of approval - along with a $5,000 check payable to the state's agriculture department - provides marketing help and prominence on a Web site the agency hopes to launch later this year.

The program, approved by the Legislature last year and the brainchild of an East Texas lawmaker, is similar to other states' efforts to lure retirees and their disposable income. A nearly identical program in Mississippi has stamped 21 cities as amenable to retirees and attracted more than 5,500 new retiree households since the program launched in 1994, according to state officials there.
