(A)   The present population is estimated at 4,500 inhabitants (1950: 2,372). Of this number, an estimated 73% are Latin American, 25% are Anglo-American and 2% other. In addition at least 6% of the population are non-citizens. The problems involved in a distribution are the social differences and understanding, the income and educational level, the opportunities, the political differences, each plays an important part in the planning considerations.
   (B)   Because of the small size of the city, drastic changes can occur through any new industry, shutting down of existing industry, development of Padre Island, tourist trade and so forth. Therefore, no attempt was made to base the plan on projected population (see potential) but rather to plan growth from the promotional development approach.
