       PLAN OF PITIC. The Plan of Pitic was embodied in a royal cedula, issued by the viceroy of New Spain, the count of Revillagigedo, on November 14, 1789, as the basis for the founding of the “new town of Pitic, in the Province of Sonora;” it was thereafter the model for practically all of the Spanish and Mexican villas or pueblos subsequently founded in either Mexico or Texas.
