We are a 501 (c) (4) non-profit organization, formed on April 29, 2019.
Our purpose is to articulate and advance the quality of life goals of the participant neighborhoods by –
Harris County third most populous county in the nation, but Harris County’s governing body has no legislative-approved ordinance-making powers.
Such authority would serve to improve the peace and safety of the One Creek West community, resolve many neighborhood problems before these become serious issues, and improve the quality of life for the 250,000 people who call this area home.
Absent that authority, One Creek West seeks to fill this void for the communities it serves.
One Creek Week will establish a board to evaluate the services provided to residents and identify areas of common need.
It will provide an ongoing dialogue with relevant governmental entities to achieve specific goals, providing the unity and cohesiveness of a single message from residents within the area.
One Creek West serves the neighborhoods located in the extraterritorial jurisdiction of Houston's west side. This includes the area north of Interstate-10 and south of Kieth Harrow Road, east of State Highway 99 and west of State Highway 6.
The Addicks Watershed is the major land use affecting our service area, including the Addicks Reservoir and the land set aside for flood prevention as well as the main tributary in our area, South Mayde Creek.
Over the last ten years. this area has become highly developed, with the total acreage dedicated to single-family and multi-family housing increasing by 25% over the last 10 years - while commercial and industrial development was up almost 70%. Today, what was once agricultural land makes up less than 20% of the area's 100,000 acres, compared with a third only ten years ago.
