Council members also discussed ways to create a master plan of improvements for Downtown Laredo.
City Officials have been wanting to attract more tourists to the city, but have come to an agreement that Downtown needs some work.
Already included in the master plan are the River Vega Plan, the San Bernardo Project, and Main Street, all working on ways to improve Downtown.
Cindy Liendo Espinoza\DISTRICT 8 "In the next few years we are already looking at bringing the Convention Center downtown, bringing the outlet malls to downtown. We just want to make sure we're ready, we have all the infrastructure we need, zoning in the right place so when all of it becomes a reality we're ready to go."
Once these improvements are made to Downtown, city officials hope our city will be more accessible to tourists and encourage people to our community to go and enjoy.
