The Lower Rio Grande Valley Sustainability Network

The Lower Rio Grande Valley (LRGV) is a subtropical semi-arid region with rapid population growth. The LRGV has economic vitality in part due to its border location--as a result, booming population growth. High population density has caused rapid urban development with an array of sustainability issues and impacts on quality of life.

There are a variety of entities (governmental and non-governmental) in the Valley addressing some of these issues but there is little coordination, facilitation and monitoring of their efforts due to a lack of communication and organization. The LRGV Sustainability Network is intended to enhance, facilitate and expand all that is being done to address sustainability in the Lower Rio Grande Valley.

More information will be available soon.
