Keep the Southwest Management District working for YOU!

You may be aware that an apartment complex owner, called “GatesCo,” has been contacting property owners in an attempt to dissolve the District. Allegations about the District used in mailers and in telephone outreach by “GatesCo” representatives are simply false. These misleading statements are based in politics rather than reality.

Please do not sign any documents issued by GatesCo – or any other partisan lobbying group.

Did you know that the District is served by an all-volunteer Board made up from our diverse business community who work to provide:

Public Safety

Daily patrols and a 24/7 dispatch call center by S.E.A.L. Security Solutions with proactive initiatives by off-duty HPD officers and camera installations in high crime areas.

Maintenance

Landscaping in major corridors and identity wayfinding signage — along with graffiti removal, litter abatement, and underpass cleanups.

Services & Initiatives

Stimulating business growth by working with partners such as Chambers of Commerce, Realtors, and City of Houston agencies.

Southwest Management District Quick Facts:

  • DOES NOT DUPLICATE City of Houston services… rather, the District provides services that the City of Houston does not provide.
  • IS recognized by HPD and other government services groups as one of the City’s MOST EFFICIENT management districts.

  • Has one of the LOWEST assessment rates of any management district in the state of Texas.

“We fully support the Southwest Management District’s hard work to deal with difficult issues of crime, homelessness and a range of other urban issues that impact our community. Without the District, those services would disappear.”

DAWN LIN, ASSESSMENT PAYER

“I know when I call the District for help, the right resources show up. I’m sick of these calls from people telling me that the District doesn’t provide enough value. Those people need to come down to my property at midnight on a Saturday night and see what’s happening. I’m glad we have a management district that is interested in my needs.”

MARTHA LOPEZ, PROPERTY MANAGER
