MISSION STATEMENT

The economic development team grows Houston businesses and nurtures Houstonian quality of life, an act only accomplished with sound public finance and disciplined sustainable development.

 

VISION STATEMENT

The economic development team will blend people, assets, and ideas into a powerful bayou city batter, a balanced mixture that helps families live and encourages businesses to grow. This growth will begin with sound public finance: work that focuses on sustainable development and Houston’s future.

The development division will create local, collaborative solutions to growth, solutions grounded in Houston’s competitive advantages, industries, and individuals. Our team will help develop opportunities, produce public goods, and unite communities. Above all, we believe these actions facilitate economic growth, improving quality of life as equitable as possible.
