About the DTMP Project

In 2005, the City of Edinburg completed and adopted the Gateway Plan, which provides Edinburg a comprehensive vision for development over the next 20 years. The Gateway Plan laid the groundwork for this project, which will take a closer look at the “Downtown” area that surrounds the Hidalgo County Courthouse.

The Downtown Master Plan will focus on:

  • Economic development
  • Livability
  • Community character
  • Transportation
  • Sustainability

Each of these areas was highlighted as a priority in 2005’s Gateway Plan. The outcome of the Downtown Master Plan will be a strategic implementation plan based on collaboratively-developed, underlying principals. The plan will establish a visionary framework that will help make Downtown Edinburg a desirable destination.

The success of the Downtown Master Plan will depend on the level of participation and input from the community. Whether you’re a business owner, City or County employee, student, professor, or resident, you are a key stakeholder in the Plan and should have a say in creating a vision for its future. To get involved and have your voice heard, please plan to participate in one of the upcoming community forums or contact us by phone or email to share your thoughts and ideas. Additionally, you can provide input by following the tab labeled “Community Survey;” your responses will help the project team better understand the community’s dreams and goals for Edinburg.
