Finding Balance: Katy, Fulshear align conservation efforts with continued residential growth
18 Dec 2022
The Katy and Fulshear areas have experienced exponential population increases and development in the last five years. As residential communities are built to accommodate growth, local governments, regional organizations and environmental agencies must work together to create symbiosis between environmental conservation and development, officials said.
The combined population of the six ZIP codes making up Community Impact’s Katy market—77493, 77494, 77441, 77449, 77094 and 77450—rose 25.19% from 2015-20, reaching 388,036 residents in 2020, per U.S. Census Bureau data.
