The Katy Area Economic Development Council (Katy Area EDC) has launched a new comprehensive website to bolster its online presence and highlight business opportunities and advantages in this burgeoning area of southeast Texas.

Katy Area EDC is focused on business recruitment, development and expansion in and around Katy, Texas, which is just 25 miles west of Houston. The user friendly, online portal includes an array of information about the region, including its workforce, business incentives and quality of life. It features powerful Zoom Prospector and GIS Planning tools that enable auto population of area demographics and community profile data.

The website will be a valuable resource for finding real estate in the area. It includes details about the 81 buildings and 82 sites currently available in the area. Brokers will have the ability to upload photos and brochures to the site themselves and all properties will also be featured on Texas Site Search via ZoomProspector.
