Title: When is a colonia no longer a colonia? the politics and process of development in informal homestead subdivisions in Texas
Author: Kelley, Maritza Isaura
Abstract: This report will seek to identify the various factors that both enable and impede colonias and non-border colonias from developing. What processes determine the improvement of conditions in informal homestead subdivisions? Upon completing a number of interviews and extensive research, the conclusion can be reached that the various issues in policy implementation experienced with border colonias can help to inform the development of improved policies that will benefit both border and non-border colonias.
