Safety and Security              Four-Year Cost: $1,748,000

Create a Public Safety Program directed by a Public Safety Director that establishes a Public Safety Advisory Council to:
  • Conduct business security audits
  • Contract officers to patrol commercial areas
  • Monitor & report crime statistics
  • Deliver educational programs to help prevent crime in the community.

The result would be a year-over-year 10% reduction in criminal incidents.
 
Economic Development               Four-Year Cost: $462,250

  • Launch an aggressive Grow Northwest Business Recruitment, Retention and Expansion Program to bring the right kind of business to the area and to ensure existing businesses have the resources needed to remain in the community and to expand.
  • Recruit two non-retail businesses to the service area per year generating new annual tax revenue of at least $30,000.
  • Create a Grow Northwest Center to provide support systems for existing businesses.


Community Image & Marketing               Four-Year Cost: $289,250

Our community is challenged by a lack of identity. Grow Northwest would:
  • Develop and implement a Community Strategic Marketing Plan and Campaign
  • Design & install monument signage to mark key entrances into the community
  • Install street markers with street addresses in 75 major intersections.

Corporate Investment Program

In northwest Harris County, we get things done by grass roots means. We have raised funds to open the Centrum, our premiere performing / concert venue, we have opened the Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Arts and we have landscaped 8 miles of Cypress Creek Parkway. The Houston Northwest Chamber of Commerce, through Grow Northwest, launched the Grow Northwest Capital Campaign with the goal to raise $3.2 million to fund community and economic development projects.
