This study was funded by the City of Converse and also by the Rural Business Program (RBP), a part of the South-West Texas Border Small Business Development Center (SWTSBDC) which is hosted by the Institute for Economic development (IED) at UTSA.

A number of recommendations are made to encourage further development and improvements to the City of Converse Park system.
