Did you know?

Did you know the Falfurrias Facts were established in 1906

This is Falfurrias, Texas

Falfurrias is the county seat of Brooks County, Texas, United States. The town is named for founder Edward Cunningham Lasater's ranch, La Mota de Falfurrias. In 1893, the Falfurrias ranch was one of the largest in Texas at some 350,000 acres.

The city is centered around the intersection of U.S. Highway 281 and State Highway 285 and is approximately 81 miles southwest of Corpus Christi, 90 miles southeast of Laredo, and 36 miles south of Alice. Population was 6,200 as of 2010.

Market Demand Analysis

Catalyst reviewed demand by distance and aggregated demand based upon unmet demand in bands of distance from the Study Area. The closer the population the greater the likelyhood to capture the demand. The following tables show demand broken down by distance. Each band is mutually exclusive.
 
For instance the 3 - 5 mile band only is taking into account demand and supply within that band and does not include the demand and supply within the 0 - 3 mile band.
 
Based upon the type of use, competition, amount of demand, and what would be reasonable to expect Falfurrias to be able to service. Currently, Catalyst estimates that the City of Falfurrias has the potential to capture approximately 20,488 square feet of demand from the local population. In addition, Falfurrias can likely capture regional demand, due to the fact that Falfurrias is a regional hub and there are few cities between Corpus Christi and Harlingen that have the strength of retail that Falfurrias contains. The total estimated regional demand is approximately 47,000 square feet.

A Public Awareness Campaign

Life, Well Run is ICMA’s campaign to raise awareness of the role professional local government managers play in building communities we're proud to call home.

These managers play a pivotal role in making local government and the services it provides more effective, efficient, ethical, and transparent.

Yet, perhaps because managers are so good at what they do and shun the limelight, some elected officials may not fully appreciate their professionalism, and many in the public are unaware the job even exists.

RAISING THE PROFILE OF PROFESSIONAL MANAGEMENT

These factors, combined with demographics -- the baby boomer managers who were inspired to public service by President John F. Kennedy have begun to retire -- have formed the perfect storm for professional management.

We must act now to ensure the future of the profession, to make sure there are qualified professionals to serve the residents of this country’s cities, towns, and counties.

THE NATIONAL CAMPAIGN HAS LAUNCHED!

ICMA has launched the campaign with advertising in 10 states. These ads are directed to elected officials, business and civic leaders, and students, and will drive them to the Life, Well Run website where they can see our messages and access resources promoting the value of professional local government management. 

CAMPAIGN RESOURCES

We have developed a panoply of resources for state associations and members and information about the campaign, as well as resources that share our messages with elected officials and business leaders. This summer, we also will release resources for teachers to use with high school and college students.

In addition to advertising and developing campaign resources, we have made improvements to the Life, Well Run website, where we share resources and information about the campaign, and where we showcase community success stories from professional local government managers.  Visit the new map to read the stories, and remember to share your stories with us at yourstory@lifewellrun.org
