The study paints a picture of the housing demands expected by 2025 in the western shale region.
The housing study is the third in a series of Eagle Ford Shale studies offered by UTSA. In February 2011, the institute released the Eagle Ford Shale Economic Impact Report, 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 the six counties. With funding from the IED Rural Business Program, the UTSA College of Architecture Center for Urban and Regional Planning Research has examined the six counties to identify housing challenges and opportunities in the region.
