Additionally, there were 469 single-family homes built, as well as, an increase in commercial construction.

“More people are moving to Edinburg,” he said. “We anticipate a demand for more apartment units, retail, entertainment, and food establishments as more people come to Edinburg in search of a better life.”

He concluded, “We know that you too can contribute and benefit from the exciting growth and opportunities we’re seeing. So if you’re looking to be successful remember, we’re always open for business.”
