One Creek West is a non-profit community organization, dedicated to advancing the quality-of-life objectives of our shared community in West Houston's extraterritorial jurisdiction.
The views and concerns of the residents in our community drive our goals and objectives, guided by what we, as a community, share in common.
Our area has grown rapidly over the past four decades. With rapid urbanization comes the potential for increased criminal and gang activity – along with increased homelessness as the City of Houston enforces its ordinances, pushing its homeless populations into the ETJ.
At the same time, budget constraints have not allowed investments in law enforcement to keep pace with Harris County’s growth in population – particularly in our area.
One Creek West seeks a collaborative relationship with the law enforcement agencies that support our community, making sure that they have and allocate the resources needed to protect the safety of our community.
In addition to our physical safety, we need a physical environment in which we can take pride: well-maintained residential and commercial areas, accessible trails and parks, an overall sense of safety and opportunity for our children.
With the rapid development west of SH-99, some businesses have moved from our area, through traffic has exploded, and the landscape that remains is less harmonious and less inviting.
One Creek West identifies and promotes those initiatives between business, governmental and non-
governmental agencies, and the community that support our quality of life goals - that make our
community a "good place to live".
During Harvey, over 1,500 homes were flooded in our area, and many residents continue their struggle to recover.
Climate change, and the rapid urbanization of private land behind the Addicks Dam and into the Katy Prairie west of SH-99 has heightened the risk of flooding for our community – not just only along South Mayde Creek and Bear Creek, but for properties outside FEMA-designated flood plains.
One Creek West seeks to develop effective communications with governmental and non-governmental agencies engaged in flood mitigation projects - and collaborates with other flood advocacy groups to best represent our community in decisions that affect the security of their homes in flood-related events.
