(July 6, 2012) -- The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and Eagle Ford Consortium will jointly present a luncheon briefing to release the results of the inaugural Eagle Ford Shale Strategic Housing Analysis. The study provides a housing strategy for the region to help allocate the resources needed to meet the housing needs of the workforce in the region over the next 10 to 15 years.

The briefing is scheduled for 11 a.m.-1 p.m., Tuesday, July 10 at Garza Ranch, located just north of Cotulla, Texas. Attendees will receive the full report at the luncheon, which is free and open to the public.

The housing study was commissioned by the Small Business Development Center Rural Business Program, a part of the UTSA Institute for Economic Development. Researchers Azza Kamal and Richard Tangum in the UTSA College of Architecture and Center for Urban and Regional Planning Research conducted the study, which discusses current and future housing demands of the oil and gas workforce in six western Eagle Ford Shale counties. They include Dimmit, Frio, La Salle, Maverick, Webb and Zavala Counties.
