Vote for Willowfork Drainage District (WFDD) Parks and Amenities Project Nov. 8, 2011 in Katy TX


A three-part plan is detailed that includes parks, improvements to playgrounds at all or most of the area schools and a significant increase in the amount and connectivity of paved walking trails and sidewalks.  The parks portion includes three notable additions; a large park located on a 31-acre tract behind and CRHS, an amphitheater in the expansion phase of LaCenterra and a large park along the wide Diversion Channel where it passes on each side of mason road south of Creech Elementary School.  The WFDD states that the land for these parks is not adding to the cost of the project, as WFDD already owns the Diversion Channel and it has secured long-term leases at negligible cost on the other two tracts from KISD and LaCenterra.  For more information visit www.willowforkparks.com

Katy is a city located in Harris, Fort Bend and Waller Counties in the U.S. state of Texas, within the Houston–Sugar Land–Baytown metropolitan area. The population was 11,775 at the 2000 census.

Katy, suburb of Houston, Texas, is named for the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad (commonly referred to as the "K-T Railroad", now a part of Union Pacific) that ran through Katy in the 19th century. Katy was once known as Cane Island. The name is derived from Cane Island Creek which runs just west of downtown. Cane Creek is a branch of Buffalo Bayou. The origins of the name Cane Island are believed to be from the fact that Katy was once a major sugar cane producer and rice producer. To commermorate the importance of rice to the Katy community, the Chamber of Commerce holds the Rice Harvest Festival every second weekend of October.

Katy was recently the location of one of the ten large red balloons in the DARPA Network Challenge on December 5, 2009. The balloon was stationed in Katy Park.

In 2009 the Gadberry Group named Katy as one of nine "9 from 2009" most notable high growth areas in the United States.
After a low income apartment complex was proposed for development in an adjacent unincorporated area, in 2010 the Katy City Council passed a resolution stating that the development would decrease property values.[5] The plans for the complex were canceled.
