Tourism, border security, legal employment for Mexicans and a regional infrastructure development were the four action plans discussed at the third border mayors meeting held on Jan. 25 at the Douglas Visitors Center.
“We are working together to change the impression that the border is a division line, when in fact it is a meeting point,” Consul of Mexico in Douglas, Oscar Antonio de la Torre said
Bisbee Mayor and hostess Adriana Zavala-Badal proposed to have an employment fair that would serve as a point of meeting for all the area entrepreneurs, investors and employers.
The group also agreed to invite both the Sonora Ministries of Tourism and Employment and the Sierra Vista Economic Development Foundation to the next meeting.
They plan on developing a brand name in order to build a website, Facebook page and other social media sites. This way there is one central area for community members or people from outside of Cochise County to get information.
