With over $14 billion in upcoming capital projects, including four major generational projects, the City of Austin has created a new City department to centralize capital project delivery. The Deputy Director will have the opportunity to oversee the delivery of projects that will change the face of one of the nation’s most admired cities.


By any traditional measure, Austin is thriving. Fueled by an influx of people and businesses, Greater Austin is one of the country's fastest-growing regions. Austin is currently the 10th largest city in the U.S. and is projected to be the 3rd largest metro in the U.S. by 2100.

Located at the edge of the Texas Hill Country -- rolling terrain of limestone bluffs, springs, rivers, and lakes -- Austin’s climate is ideal for year-round jogging, cycling, hiking on the city’s many trails, or swimming at Barton Springs or one of the area’s many other swimming holes. There are several excellent golf courses in the area, as well as opportunities for rowing, kayaking, canoeing, camping, rock climbing, disc golf, mountain biking, fishing, and more. Austin has something for everyone.
