• State and Regional Water Plans

    Dear Citizens,

    Some of you participated in the regional forum here in Alpine in early June to offer comments for our State and Regional Water plans.

    Texas Water Development Board posted the following to their website recently.

    Please take some time to review and gain a better understanding of the water strategy in the state and region.

    Have a great week,

  • Old Friendships

    I was excited to hear from an old friend Don Cohen this week.  Don was the Executive Director at the Eagle County Economic Development Council while we lived in the Eagle Valley.  Don was (and still is) a dynamic leader who helped our Board through many important decisions.

    Don and his wife Terry have since moved ‘down the hill’ to Denver and are enjoying many of the neat aspects associated with Denver’s downtown revitalization.  He is also working part time for Winnebago (blogging for them).  Little did I know that Don and his wife traveled to the Big Bend Region in 2015 and were able to experience the Cowboy Poetry Gathering.

    Take a look at his blog article here!

    Thanks Don for sharing your perspective on our little piece of paradise.

  • Comment Period – Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy

    Dear Citizens,

    Our Rio Grande Council of Governments has developed a committee focused on economic development in the region.  The committee has a draft document prepared (click here) for review by the people in the region.  Please take the time to read the strategy and offer comments (if you so choose) to the Annette Gutierrez – Executive Director at the COG.

    This is not the same plan as our City of Alpine Vision Plan, rather focused on the entire region.

    Thank you and have a wonderful day in Alpine,

    Erik Zimmer, City Manager
