Quality for a Lifetime
Saginaw is a place where community and businesses partner to create quality for a lifetime! Saginaw's nurturing business climate, responsible citizenry, quality schools, modern infrastructure, technological resources, friendly community, environment with metropolitan advantages, and hometown appeal are just a few of the reasons why families and businesses alike choose the city for their home.
Community is the neighborhood you live in, the business district where you shop, the park your kids play in, the services available when you need a helping hand, and the place you call home. Community is made up of people, clubs, service organizations, and institutions such as schools, a thriving Chamber of Commerce, and your Saginaw city government. Your city services include everything from parks, recreation, and libraries to fire protection and police activities.
Saginaw's citizens enjoy a balance of urban amenities and a small-town quality of life. It's a community rich in heritage and traditional family values. The City of Saginaw operates under a Texas Home Rule charter, which provides for a council-manager form of government with an elected mayor and a six-member City Council. Day-to-day operations are overseen by a city manager. With a pro-business attitude, the city representatives have looked to the future in designing the city's infrastructure.
Saginaw is located in the Eagle Mountain-Saginaw Independent School District. The district's standardized test scores are higher than state and national averages.
Recreation & Activities
After working hours, residents can retreat to any of the city's seven parks, some of which include playground equipment for the physically challenged. Recreational opportunities include a recreation center, the aquatic center, tennis courts, volleyball and basketball courts, jogging trails, picnic areas, and a community center. These recreational amenities provide places for families to gather outdoors and enjoy the comfortable Sun Belt climate. The public library and senior citizen center offer a wealth of information and recreational activities.
Saginaw is waiting to welcome your business and your family. Come share our vision and become a part of our future!
