Next up for RGVP’s Commercial & Investment Tour: Weslaco

The next leg in the Rio Grande Valley Partnership’s tour highlighting investment opportunities in the region focuses on Weslaco.

Panel discussions with Weslaco leaders and a bus tour of the city will take place on Thursday, Dec. 2, 2021.

“We have got a lot of great sites to show those on the tour but we are going to do things a little differently,” said Steve Valdez, executive director of Weslaco Economic Development Corporation.

“There have been some elements to Weslaco that have been a setback. For example, we have had publicity over the flooding. So we will have our city engineer talk about all the plans we have going on in terms of mitigating the flooding.”

The RGVP calls its monthly visits to the Valley’s various cities the Commercial & Investment Tour. Among those attracted to the tours are real estate agents, land developers, and investors. They learn about retail and industrial sites that are primed for development.

Valdez said Weslaco plans to host a panel-style discussion before the bus tour.

“We will have some city officials, we will have some developers and then, we are opening up a new industrial park so we will have some industry leaders there as well,” he said. Click to read more at
