The Chamber of Commerce pitch: "Hurst continues to transform and revitalize key corridors — new businesses are flocking in and the new conference center brings in thousands of visitors each month. Yes, big things are happening in Hurst. In 2009 the City opened state-of-the-art Hurst Fire Station No. 2 and the first-ever Hurst Senior Citizens Activities Center, both of which anchor Heritage Village. And Hurst’s largest project to date, the 50,000-square-feet Hurst Conference Center, opened in 2010 at Hurst Town Center ... Hurst consistently offers superior public services to its residents. Just like the marquees declare, Hurst truly is a quality of life city."
