Retire in Orange

Orange has been designated a Certified Retirement Community in Texas as of June 2010.

The GO TEXAN Certified Retirement Community Program is a certification and promotion program provided by the Texas Department of Agriculture. To become a certified retirement community, each community must complete a rigorous application process including a retiree desirability assessment. Each application is reviewed and scored by an independent advisory committee comprised of volunteers who are experienced in various aspects of community and economic development.

The GO TEXAN stamp of approval ensures each certified community has demonstrated through its application that it can meet the living, employment/volunteer, health, entertainment, education and safety needs of its citizens and visitors - all the things that make Orange a great place to retire with its "Small Town Charm. World Class Culture."

Mayor Brown Claybar said, "This is a great marketing tool for Orange and with our new downtown plan, it's only going to become a better place to retire."
