EDINBURG, Texas- During this week’s city council meeting on Tuesday, September 20, 2022, Mayor and Council voted to approve a number of contracts that will soon expand the North Industrial Park Subdivision in Edinburg and create hundreds of new jobs in the area.
Following each item’s initial approval by the Edinburg Economic Development Corporation’s Board of Directors, Mayor Ramiro Garza Jr. and council members David White, Daniel ‘Dan’ Diaz, and Jason De Leon voted unanimously to approve the sale of 38 acres in the area that will house companies that are expanding, such as Nicho Produce, RGV CDL Services, and more. The property sales will allow these businesses to offer a variety of services, including retail signage, produce distribution sites, and commercial spaces in our city.
In total, the businesses are expected to invest over $27.15 million dollars in capital investment and are set to provide 610 jobs in the community.
“With these sales, there will be millions of dollars invested in our Industrial Park that will affect so many areas,” Councilman Daniel ‘Dan’ Diaz says. “All these workers will need places to buy their food, put gas, build homes – the ripple effect is endless. Furthermore, the expansion of 2 new bridges coming from the border will loop and connect to I-69 in this general area. The explosion of development is on its way. It shows that the EDC is doing a great job of attracting new businesses as well as assisting our existing businesses to grow.”
