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.


Mission & Vision

Our Mission: To conduct projects and programs to strengthen and promote the Westchase Area as a highly desirable area in which to locate a business, work, shop, live, recreate or invest, thereby producing increased economic activity resulting in positive economic benefits for the businesses, property owners, tenants, and residents.

Our Vision: The Westchase community is a vibrant living and working community, with a high-quality downtown. The Westchase community is perceived by residents as the safest in the region and has the highest (measured) mobility level in the region. The community is known for having entertainment/recreation amenities, and there are interconnecting hiking, biking, and pedestrian ways, linking a set of community gathering areas.


Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors is made up of individuals who own property or represent property owners within our boundaries. The Board’s focus on long-range planning and bottom-line benefit shows in the District’s projects and programs. They set the goals for the staff to enact.
