The offices of the Fredericksburg Chamber of Commerce will be closed Thursday and Friday, November 26-27, in observance of Thanksgiving.
We are filled with gratitude for our incredible business community companies across all industries and of all sizes and for the employees who work hard every day to keep them running.
Protecting our community is a language we can all speak! Soon, Chamber members will be seeing a local public health campaign developed by the Fredericksburg Convention & Visitor Bureau, in partnership with the Fredericksburg Chamber of Commerce and Gillespie County Economic Development Commission.
The PROTECT FBG flyer is available to download for display in your business, along with social media graphics and other resources.
The Board of the Fredericksburg Chamber of Commerce has drafted a letter to Governor Greg Abbott requesting the immediate opening of Texas wineries, and is seeking support from surrounding Chambers as co-signatories.

The Chamber has also offered public comment in support of an infrastructure cost-share agreement with The McDonald Companies, who are working to develop a 110-unit apartment complex on Friendship Lane funded using 4% tax credits from the state. The development is expected to offer a mix of one, two and three bedroom units with monthly rents ranging from $822-$1,140.
The City agreed in a 4-1 vote, with Councilman Charlie Kiehne dissenting, to a 50/50 cost share on a water line extension and curb/gutter extension totaling approximately $40,000.
