La Vernia residents and downtown stakeholders are invited to two town hall meetings on Thursday, Nov. 14, in the La Vernia City Hall at 102 E. Chihuahua in the Council Chambers to hear presentations on the La Vernia Downtown District Vision Plan 2013. The first meeting will be at 10:30 a.m., the second at 5:30 p.m.

The Vision Plan study was initiated by the La Vernia Municipal Development District Central Business District Advisory Committee. The committee requested development of the plan through the Rural Business Program, a part of the South-West Border Small Business Development Center, which is hosted by the Institute for Economic Development at the University of Texas at San Antonio. The Rural Business Program then contracted with the Center for Urban and Regional Planning Research in the UTSA College of Architecture to conduct the research and formulate a plan for long-term sustainable economic growth while maintaining and enhancing La Vernia’s small-town ambience.

Several outcomes are expected through the Downtown District Vision Plan. The data generated through the economic analysis provides the community with a better understanding of the underlying dynamics of its economy, and enables the La Vernia Municipal Development District to develop a comprehensive strategy that promotes economic growth via small-business development and local entrepreneurship while also attracting new private-sector investment to La Vernia.

The Vision Plan also assists the community with re-development of its historic downtown, thus laying the foundation for future long-term growth as it positions itself as both a traditional small-town destination for tourists and a thriving retail and financial services hub for the community and the surrounding area.
