This afternoon, the City of Katy Mayor Bill Hastings provided the Fulshear Area Chamber of Commerce a presentation on the rapidly developing Katy Boardwalk District - a project that is a joint funding effort between Fort Bend County and the City of Katy.
The county recently extended the terms of the joint agreement through the next 20 years to help with the economic development of the area, as well as helping to fund necessary infrastructure and flood mitigation. The city's presentation illustrated how this future growth and development will bring another multi-purpose attraction to the North Fort Bend County area. By drawing in new businesses, new jobs, and economic growth through the future convention center - homeowners will not only have another destination amenity in the local community, but it will provide another revenue source to offset property taxes. Keeping tax dollars working here in our own community, instead of being sent off to the City of Houston is a GOOD thing for the future of Fort Bend County and Katy!
