Welcome to Cotulla, Texas

Welcome to Cotulla and La Salle County. We, at The Chamber, are glad to have you as a part of our community. Ours is an area that is rich in history and traditions. From the earliest settlers crossing into Texas at the Nueces River in ox carts going North to the latest jet planes landing at our modern airport, transportation and travel have been an important part of our lives.

Our community welcomes the oilfield activities and workers who are developing the Eagle Ford Shale in our midst.

If there is anything we can do to help you enjoy your stay with us, please contact us at our Chamber Office.

 


 

The benefits of the Eagle Ford shale play are beginning to seep north to San  Antonio and surrounding areas.

Officials are saying that population, housing and potential for commercial  development could be nipping of the heels of development taking off in counties  and cities on San Antonio's periphery as the oil and gas boom moves forward.

The term “play” is used in the oil and gas industry to refer to a geographic  area which has been targeted for exploration due to favorable survey  results.

With more than 250 oil and gas rigs operating, industry experts say the play  could continue to be developed for decades to come.

The play is expected to bring 117,000 workers to the area between now and  2021 and have a $90 billion economic impact to the region.

The UTSA study examines housing in six counties — Dimmit, Frio, La Salle,  Maverick, Webb and Zavala — affected by the play, and asserts a need for both  multi and single family housing as a majority of newcomers to the area are  expected to be “young families with school-aged children.”
