The Southwest District

District MapThe District of 10-square-miles is located in Harris County and is bordered by Hillcroft on the east, Beltway 8 on the west, Westpark Tollway on the north and U.S. 59 / Bissonnet on the south.

The Southwest Management District was created by the Texas Legislature in June 2005 to enhance the physical, social, and economic well- being of the burgeoning southwest Houston community. The District is a political subdivision of the State of Texas and is a governmental entity administered by a nine-member, all volunteer board of directors.

Projects and services of the District are funded through 6-cents per 100 hundred dollar HCAD valuation assessment that generated approximately $1 million in annual revenues in 2009.

In February 2007, the board of directors adopted a five-point Service and Action Plan to address the District’s mobility and transportation planning, environmental and urban design elements, public safety initiatives, as well as business and economic development. Since then, the District continues to work toward the goals outlined in this plan. The mission of the District is to attract and supplement public and private capital investment, provide professional management of the area’s needs and maintain the Southwest Management District as a premier place to work, live and invest.
