Edinburg, TX — More people are choosing Edinburg to live and start a business. Proof is in the latest Valley Construction Report conducted by the Rio Grande Valley Partnership. The report monitors all construction activity in the Rio Grande Valley.
The first quarter report for 2014, shows Edinburg, with the most construction activity in the region with $33 million in construction value. During the same time period in 2013, Edinburg’s construction activity was only $21.8 million. City leaders attribute the increase to land availability and a thriving business atmosphere. Mayor Richard H. Garcia says; “Additionally the success of established businesses continues to draw in more entrepreneurs.”
The City’s April 2014 Building Permit Report also shows a continued upward climb with total construction activity at $38 million compared to $29.6 million last year to date. The largest increases were noted in the areas of commercial and residential construction.
Mayor Garcia expects the increased activity to continue as the development of UTRGV unfolds as well as the construction of the businesses along Interstate 69 begin to take shape.
The Rio Grande Valley Partnership Construction Report and the City’s Building Report are included as separate attachments.
