La Marque Economic Development Corporation, in cooperation with Texas A&M's Texas Coastal Watershed Program, has developed a plan to revitalize our historic downtown. These efforts will focus on Laurel Street, from Bayou Road to Yupon Drive, and 1st Street, from Bayou Road to Highway 3.
Phase Two of La Marque's three-phase revitalization planning project is underway as Texas A&M's Texas Coastal Watershed Program (TCWP) executes a series of studies, focus groups and community meetings. La Marque citizens, business owners/operators and interested parties are encouraged to attend the Community Survey.
The revitalization planning project is designed to provide a clear vision for La Marque Downtown's urban renewal. Phase 2 seeks input from the community, such as design and streetscape preferences, to develop a vision for what the area could be. What do you want to see in Downtown La Marque?
The La Marque Economic Development Corporation (EDC) in conjunction with the La Marque City Council took the bold step in 2015 to undertake a comprehensive assessment of their community and the creation of a strategic plan to direct their future development and redevelopment efforts. The Downtown Project answers the call for several priority issues, including infrastructure improvements, blight reduction, expanded tax base strategy and economic development. The renewal of La Marque's historic business hub will have a direct, lasting impact on community image, quality of life and business retention.
