The State of Texas created the Near Northwest Management District in 2001 to address concerns about public safety and economic development in our area. The District’s mission is to promote and coordinate economic growth, creation and beautification of area green spaces and promote and supplement public security within our boundaries.

The District is bounded by T.C. Jester Boulevard on the east, Pinemont Drive on the south, Hollister Drive projected to State Road 249 on the west, and State Road 249 on the north. View a detailed map of the District Boundaries.

To increase security in the area, the District contracts with Precinct 1 Harris County Constables who patrol our sixteen square mile area to provide proactive security services and work with other area law enforcement agencies to respond to crime in our area. These patrols and special multi-agency crime initiatives have brought about a significant reduction in crime in our area.

The District is managed by a Board of Directors, comprised of commercial property owners, tenants and community leaders within our boundaries. The District also has an office Staff responsible for conducting day-to-day District activities, events and programs.

Commercial property assessments fund all District services, but unlike other assessments, all money raised by the District is invested in the District. The District is a great way to make sure your money funds projects important to the business community – projects that benefit businesses and raise or maintain property values.
