PROCLAMATION
April 24, 2009

Whereas, on this day, individual residents, landowners, business owners and taxpayers of the area come together to form our unincorporated community Downtown Texas, Texas, in Milam County.

Whereas, an unincorporated community is one general term for a geographic area having a common social identity without benefit of municipal organization or official political designation (i.e. incorporation as a city or town).

Whereas, Downtown Texas, Texas is located 5.8 miles northeast of Thorndale, Texas, 7.5 miles northwest of Rockdale, Texas, 13.6 miles southwest of Cameron, Texas, our county seat, and 46 miles northeast of the State Capitol in Austin, Texas, on FM 908 and County Road 428 in Milam County. Coordinates N. 30.41.350 W.097.08.306 Elevation: 375’ ASL.

Whereas, the action taken today provides our community identity which will be depicted on available mapping and almanacs, etc., better enabling our economic development committee to attract other businesses, tourist and residents. Our proximity to the El Camino Real De Los Tejas, which is a National Historic Trail, and the three 17th century Spanish Mission sites and Presidio, are showing to be additional assets attracting tourism to not only our State, county and cities, but as well to our community, Downtown Texas, Texas.

Therefore, be it resolved, and let it be known, that on April 24, 2009, the unincorporated community Downtown Texas, Texas, in the State of Texas, in Milam County has been established by this proclamation.
