The Texas General Land Office (GLO) is launching the final survey for the Economic Development and Diversification Study.

The survey applies to nine Texas counties including Jim Wells, Aransas, Bee, Calhoun, Goliad, Nueces, Refugio, San Patricio, and Victoria. 

"I encourage residents of Jim Wells County to participate in this survey and offer their input and be a part of the solutions to secure a better economic future for our area," said Larry Martinez Executive Director of Economic Development. 

The study is designed to assess how to make the region's economy more robust and stable to withstand a variety of shocks and stresses, such as hurricanes or other disasters. The study will examine areas including workforce, infrastructure, education, and housing. Focusing on the diverse industries and professions, the outcomes and recommendations resulting from Jim Wells County's community input will provide realistic and valuable information on how to expand the region's job base with the intention to build a sustainable and resilient economy.
