Since its creation by the Texas Legislature in 1995, Westchase District has promoted economic growth in the area by enhancing mobility, beautification, public safety, planning and development of the District.

The District’s economic developments include: creation and execution of a long-range plan; promoting the District to businesses that are relocating; working with developers to provide the information they need to make sound investment decisions and to help them locate suitable opportunities that meet their investment criteria; and working with the City of Houston, the State of Texas, Harris County, Metro, TxDOT, and the Harris County Flood Control District to coordinate services and plan projects. By providing a higher level of services, Westchase District builds higher value for its property owners.
