About Taylor, Texas

The community of Taylor recently put together an innovative concept. TaylorCNET is a collaborative partnership between the City of Taylor, Taylor ISD, Taylor Economic Development, Williamson County, the Taylor Housing Authority, Johns Community Hospital, Taylor Chamber of Commerce and Temple College at Taylor. This partnership is dedicated to the quality of life in Taylor and recognizes the important role technology plays in that objective. The generous $500,000 in state funding provided by Telecommunications Infrastructure Fund went a long way in helping TaylorCNET realize its goal. A five-member Board of Directors continues to provide leadership and guidance to a project that can only be viewed as a great success. TaylorCNET boasts 14 public access points throughout the city along with a state-of-the-art distance access facility.

TaylorCNET is instrumental in keeping Taylor on the leading edge of technology in Central Texas. The Old Taylor Middle School building is abuzz with activity and technology is the theme. The Taylor Public Library has housed their public access computers at this location for two years. TaylorCNET also has its base of operation from this facility with a state-of-the-art computer lab with Smart Board Technology, an impressive videoconferencing center and "office for a day" capabilities. Moneyvue Financial has recently moved into the facility which has virtually filled the first floor of this great old building. Moneyvue employs programmers and performs Research and Development from this location. It is a great testament to the innovative way Taylor celebrates its heritage by using and not eliminating historic structures.
