Immigrants from Asia and Latin America have become critical components in a Texas job machine that’s created nearly 158,000 jobs in Houston and more than 500,000 jobs statewide since the recession in 2009. Anna Werner reports.
The District has over 2,900 businesses in virtually every industry sector. The District works with the business community to enhance, improve and assist wherever possible, the expansion and growth of business opportunities through our planned projects and programs. In 2009, the District is still in the planning process to adopt a Mobility, Transportation, Environmental and Urban Design Master Plan. When completed and approved by the Board of Directors the plan will include recommendations for new street signage, landscaping and monumentation to create an identifiable look for the District’s major thoroughfares, entranceways, pedestrian crosswalks and business area. In upcoming months we will also develop programs to promote community support of local businesses. The District also has an abundance of good quality storefront space available on busy thoroughfares with great street front exposure. To learn more about the opportunities in the District or for a District tour please feel free to contact District staff at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, we look forward to hearing from you.
