New Resident

Now that you have settled on our friendly city we want to give you a warm welcome and help you navigate your move.  We know you have a lot of decisions to make during your relocation so we put together some information and a list of contacts to make it easier.

Our Matagorda County Welcome Circle is a committee that works to help new residents find their place in our community.  Contact us at 979-245-8081 and we will provide people who love to share their knowledge of Bay City and will show you the ropes.

I have lived in Bay City for 7 years after moving from the Deer Park area. We enjoy living in Bay City for many of the city's attributes; from the slow pace, friendly atmosphere to the close proximity to the beach and river. It is easy to be involved in the community's organizations because people are friendly and willing to help each other out. It is such a great welcoming culture from the Houston lifestyle.
