Petty & Associates, Inc., was founded in 1998 by Trent Petty after a successful career as a Texas city manager. Trent’s ambition was to fill the void between the visionary plans offered by developers and the financial realities impacting Texas cities and counties. Over 20 years later P&A has helped dozens of municipalities and counties throughout the state and been instrumental in some of the biggest real estate deals in the State. Projects like Fidelity Investments Corporate Campus, Charles Schwab Regional Headquarters, and Deloitte University illustrate Petty’s passion for making good deals for cities. P&A has also been a part of many retail developments such as Grapevine Mills Mall, Bass Pro Shops and others. Trent’s first love is reviving and revitalizing historic town centers. His projects include Main Street developments in Grapevine, Lewisville, Weatherford, Mesquite, Ennis, Brenham and many others. In addition, P&A has developed incentive packages and special taxing districts for many Texas cities that resulted in high-end residential and mixed-use developments throughout Texas. P&A also provides municipal comprehensive plan updates with a focus on achieving economic development goals and redeveloping vacant areas. Building on their multi-disciplinary approach to success, P&A continues to benefit from the accretion of broadly experienced associates whose collective backgrounds serve a wide variety of public interests in the State of Texas.

Our Approach

P&A starts every project with policy alignment work to provide our clients with a clear and measurable pathway to success. P&A’s strategic planning services have assisted multiple cities in achieving a measurable development vision. Every project clearly illustrates public cost and benefit, including cost of services associated with building and serving new development. P&A also prepares and presents all aspects of the public information associated with our projects. From needs assessment to project reality, visions like Westlake Academy are now reality.
