OUR VISION

180,000 CITIZENS

With over 180,000 citizens, Brownsville is one of the fastest growing regions in the state of Texas.  Yet it is a region that has suffered from decades of high rates of poverty and unemployment. In 2008 the community joined together for the Imagine Brownsville Comprehensive Planning Process, and were asked to reimagine what was possible in Brownsville – to build the Brownsville they wanted. Through an intensive community engagement process over 180 goals, objectives and sub-objectives where prioritized and processed into 12 specific vision themes.

OUR APPROACH

10 STRATEGIC INITIATIVES

While the vision provides a set of desired outcomes that define where the community wants to go, it does not provide a blueprint for how to get there. Moving from vision to blueprint requires the following general steps: First, make the vision operational through the use of indicators, so that you can measure and identify the gaps between the vision and the current reality; Second, understand the key root causes of the gaps – the constraints that prevent the community from realizing its vision; and, Finally, develop strategies targeted specifically to overcome the constraints and root causes. Through this process 10 Strategic Initiatives were developed with an overall strategy to reaching our vision by making Brownsville more globally competitive.

OUR PARTNERSHIP
