This report presents a vision plan for the Downtown District of La Vernia, Texas and its primary market area in order to assist the community in its efforts to promote long-term sustainable economic growth while maintaining and enhancing its historical small-town ambiance. The proposals set forth in this Vision Plan also set the stage for the La Vernia community to take full advantage of its location between the growing San Antonio metropolitan area to the north and west and the thriving Eagle Ford Shale oil and gas developments to the south and east. The plan also includes a business/economic assessment and an economic gap analysis to target new investment opportunities in the La Vernia primary and secondary
market areas.
