The housing study is the third in a series of Eagle Ford Shale studies
offered by UTSA. In February 2011, the Institute released its Eagle Ford
Shale Economic Impact Report <http://ccbr.iedtexas.org/> , which indicated
that the western portion of the Eagle Ford Shale‹La Salle, Zavala, Dimmit,
Maverick, Frio and Webb Counties‹is the area most impacted by activity
related to the recent oil find. Last May, the Institute completed a
Workforce Analysis to illustrate employment in those same six counties. With
funding from the IED¹s Rural Business Program, the UTSA College of
Architecture¹s Center for Urban and Regional Planning Research, has now
examined those six counties to identify housing challenges and opportunities
in the region.
