Rural Business Program

CCBR has partnered with the South-West Texas SBDC Border Network’s Rural Business Program and the UTSA College of Architecture to prepare economic base studies and community plans for the communities of Encinal, Port Isabel, Pecos and Zapata. “This is an exciting opportunity to provide these community leaders with key economic development tools that they will be able to use in planning their community’s future,” said Dominique Halaby, CCBR Director. Each project is expected to be released by the end of the summer 2010.
