Town to seek development proposals

Special to the PRESS

The Town of Laguna Vista will soon seek development proposals for land located near the proposed South Texas Eco-Tourism Center.

Officials here approved the process to seek requests for development proposals for the city-owned land, a 13-acre tract previously donated by the Yturria Family.

“What we envision is that any development on the 13 acres will complement the Eco-Center,” City Manager Rolando Vela said. “We would like to see experiential retail businesses that are ecologically-minded, responsible storm water management, native landscaping and facilities that highlight and celebrate the local culture and environment.”

A May 1 deadline is set to receive proposals.

Vela reported that Cameron County, which is leading the 10-acre Eco-Tourism development process, will advertise for construction bids in March with construction anticipated in the final quarter of the calendar year.
