Cotulla Main Street celebrates 10th anniversary
Cotulla Main Street has recently announced the 10th anniversary of its Texas Historical Commission designation.
The program earned its recognition in October 2006, as a Texas Main Street City by the State of Texas and joined 89 Main Street Cities in their mission of promoting economic development. In May of 2006, the Cotulla City Council adopted a resolution citing their official goal of revitalizing the central business district with the context of the preservation and rehabilitation of its historic buildings. The program functions as a one-staff-member office, a 13-chair Advisory Board, and volunteer assistance for events. General Manager, Patsy Leigh has proudly served as the organization’s lead since 2008.
“While I’ve been involved with the Main Street Program, we have been able to see many improvements in our historic district downtown,” Leigh said. “There are still projects to be completed, but they will come about in the very near future.” Cotulla Main Street Stakeholders, (L-R) Gil Rocha, Deryl Morris, Councilwoman Trish Garcia, Mayor Jose Javier Garcia, Councilwoman Mary Koraleski, Erica Bustamante, Patsy Leigh and Larry Dovalina.
