The article focuses on the state of Texas which is second largest state both in population and in area in the U.S. Each city, county seat, and town in Texas has its own essence. Austin is considered to be Athens of Texas. There are four significant planning opportunities for Texas. The first deals with the state laws that give Texas cities the regulatory authority to expand. The second is the spirit of Texas which can be used for improvement of the world. Its strong sense of history can be third planning opportunity. Texas' water is its wealth and can act as its fourth opportunity. Water at same time is one of its biggest challenges. Texas design and its Department of Transportation are other challenges in front of it. Texas earns the highest international trade in the U.S. and four Nobel laureates have been students of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas--more than any other medical institution in the U.S. People of Texas are very warm and friendly people. These factors make the citizen of Texas a proud citizen.
