Mission Statement

The City of Edinburg provides services and enacts policies that promote the health and welfare of its residents, while also ensuring economic growth and continued progress for citizens' quality of life.

Description

Edinburg lies at the epicenter of one of the most dynamic regions in North America, a region that is keeping pace with the speed of change. Edinburg is the educational and technological capital of a Texas-Mexico border region. With a population of more than 2 million, this region has the highest concentration of people between the ages of 18 and 24 in North America. The result is an excellent and trainable workforce and one of the largest concentrations of Maquiladora plants along the U.S. Mexico border.

Edinburg is located in the Rio Grande Valley, a four-county area that has a larger population than South Dakota, Delaware, North Dakota, Vermont, Alaska, and Wyoming. With a land area of 11,122,712 square kilometers, the Rio Grande Valley is almost twice the size of Delaware and four times the size of Rhode Island.

Edinburg is a pro-business community with an excellent quality of life, educational facilities and strong civic pride. It has been recognized as an All-America City three times by the National Civic League, placing it among a handful of outstanding communities in the nation. Under the auspices of The University of Texas System, it will soon open the first major Medical Research Center along the U. S.- Mexico border.
