Welcome & Chamber Information

What Does the Chamber Do? The Community Chamber of Commerce of East Montgomery County was founded in 1990 and is celebrating its twentieth anniversary this year. Governed by a fifteen member board of directors the Chamber’s mission is to promote the economic well being and quality of life of East Montgomery County. The Chamber kicks off each year honoring its members who have helped further the goals of the Chamber at the Annual Banquet. The highlight of the evening recognizes our Hometown Heroes and the Small and Large Businesses of the Year. These honorees are nominated from the entire membership and represent the best of the best. The banquet also recognizes the services of our outgoing Board Chair .

The Chamber also serves as a center for information for both residents and visitors. Conveniently located along Highway 59 the Chamber is a central point for items such as demographic information, visitor’s guides, maps of the area, and information on our members. This new information directory and map is also an important part of the service we provide. The Chamber represents over 420 members—all interested in making East Montgomery County a better, more vital place to live, work and play. The Chamber is a non-profit community service organization which operates on membership dues and dollars generated from the various special events previously listed.

The annual Taste of East Montgomery County is held in the spring and features the best cooks in the area. Chamber members are encouraged to participate and network with the community.

In the spring of 2009 the Chamber launched its Shop Locally program and introduced www.shopemctx.com which will take visitors to that address directly to the membership page on the Chamber website (www.communitychamberemc.com).

The fourth annual Texas Sawmill Festival is scheduled for April 17, 2010. The third annual festival was held May 30, 2009 after being rained out on April 18th. Despite being rescheduled the festival was bigger than was originally planned with over a dozen additional vendors participating. The festival was held for the first time in April, 2007 to a crowd of over three thousand. Due to construction along US Hwy 59 the festival was held in late June of 2008 on Friday night and all day Saturday, this FREE community event takes citizens and visitors back to the early days of East Montgomery County through visits to the “old sawmill town” display, historical displays, and reenactments from that era. The goal for the festival is for it to continue as an annual event and expand to a full weekend event. The festival committee will continue to work year round to critique and enhance the festival to achieve its long term goal.

Through Ribbon Cuttings, Grand Openings, and Groundbreakings the Chamber welcomes the opportunity to assist you with events celebrating your business opening, expansion, relocation or anniversary. The Chamber staff and volunteers are available weekdays from 8 am to 5 pm to emcee your ribbon cutting, grand opening, groundbreaking or other special event. We will help you spread the word about your event through our newsletter Chamber Connections, email update via E-Connections, and calendar postings on the Chamber website. There is no charge for this MEMBER ONLY service.

began the process to file the necessary paperwork with the State of Texas and the Internal Revenue Service and on June 15, 1990 they received notice of approval from the Texas Secretary of State. The Chamber was up and running. Mary Lou Melton was hired in September of 1990 as the first Manager. The first banquet was held at New Caney Middle School in January of 1991. In 1993 Gene Gregory was named Volunteer of the Year by then President Louise Earhart. Over the years the Chamber has been blessed to have community partners who provided space from which it could operate. Those entities, in addition to Rhoden, included the Channelview Bank (now Wells Fargo), Kingwood Medical Center, and now the East Montgomery County Improvement District. In 1990 the official U S Census revealed that the population of the three zip codes (Porter, New Caney and Splendora) totaled 30,452. By 2000 the population has risen to 42,502 and it is estimated today to be in excess of 54,000. Median household income has risen from $28,272 in 1990 to over $49,000 today and the best is yet to come.

In early 1990 Louis Rhoden, Dr. Gary Watson, Maidlyn Smoot, and Charles Jones met upstairs in the Channelview Bank building on Community Drive to discuss organizing a new Chamber of Commerce after the previous one had closed its doors. Louis has stated that he knew that “we still needed a Chamber” and he was willing to let the organization use space in his insurance office to help it get going. That first meeting 14

He currently is serving his third term as Montgomery County Commissioner for Precinct 4. Commissioner Rinehart has since sold his interest in Rinehart Sand & Gravel but remains a member of the Chamber as a Distinguished Gold Investor. Commissioner Rinehart shared these thoughts on his involvement over the past twenty years with the Chamber. “In 1990 when Louis Rhoden and others contacted me about signing on as one of the charter members I didn’t hesitate.

Celebrating 20 Years

Having a vital Chamber of Commerce in any area is critical to its success and since we were an unincorporated area it made it even more important for our area. Louis and the others that got us started knew the importance of us sticking together to help each other out and really the Chamber was all we had at that time. Since the area didn’t really have a large city to take the lead on many issues facing our area the Chamber had to assume that role. Over the last twenty years the Chamber has seen its ups and downs and has sometimes struggled to just keep the doors open but we have hung in there and made it work. When then State Representative Kevin Brady (who was also President of the South Montgomery County Woodlands Chamber of Commerce) told members of the Chamber that we needed to form an improvement district similar to the Town Center Improvement District in The Woodlands, we were quick to get on board and start the process. Kevin has remained very supportive of our Chamber and the improvement district. From those early discussions with the Chamber, we now have one of the largest geographically and most successful improvement districts in the country. I still support the Chamber and its mission and after I sold my part of the business I joined as a Gold Investor and look forward to a long and successful partnership as we all work to make East Montgomery County the best place to live, work and play.”

The Chamber Today The Chamber today is very different in its membership base than what it was in 1990. All the charter members then were located in Porter, New Caney or Splendora but that has sure changed today. With a membership of over four hundred and twenty, over 50% of our members have a mailing address outside East Montgomery County. No, this does not affect the mission of the Chamber because these members who are located somewhere else are doing business (or wanting to do business) right here in East Montgomery County.

Discover East Montgomery County Community Profile Eight distinct communities make up what is often called “East County”. The communities of Porter, New Caney, Splendora, Roman Forest, Woodbranch Village, Patton Village, Grangerland, and a portion of Kingwood are located in the area. The area is predominately “un-incorporated” thus most requirements such as permitting, etc. fall under the guidelines established by Montgomery County. A significant portion of the area falls under the City of Houston’s extraterritorial jurisdiction policies. There are four incorporated cities; Patton Village, Roman Forest, Splendora and Woodbranch Village within the area. Residents and visitors alike enjoy the diversity of lifestyles found in the East Montgomery County area. The moderate climate, natural resources of parks, nearby lakes, and the gulf coast enhance year-round recreation opportunities. The close proximity to the cultural and social amenities within the City of Houston, as well as the recreational opportunities found on Lake Conroe, Lake Houston and Lake Livingston provide area residents a wide range of activities. The area has a strong medical services component. Kingwood Medical Center and its associated operations comprise the largest health entity physically within “East County”. Six other hospitals in neighboring cities also serve residents. These include Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital in Humble, Cleveland Regional Medical Center, Conroe Regional Medical Center, Lakeside Hospital The Woodlands, Memorial Hermann The Woodlands, and St. Luke’s Episcopal The Woodlands. Dr. Barry G. Willens’ clinic in New Caney, the East Montgomery County Community Clinic in Splendora and several other Doctors and clinics are also in the area.

Fire safety is provided by Montgomery County Emergency Services Districts 6, 7 and 11 as well as the Grangerland fire district. Permitting is through Montgomery County with some areas falling under the jurisdiction of the City of Houston.

large timber stands covering the land. Sawmills became the main economic force. Located on the Texas and New Orleans Railroad the community of Porter was originally called Porter Mill, after the first sawmill in the area. Just up the road Presswood and the Boggy District were founded. In 1862 Captain John Robertson petitioned the Post Office for the name Caney, Texas but found out that there was already a town with the same name, thus the name New Caney was established to avoid confusion with the other town. In 1907 Dr. Edwin Granger founded the area known as Grangerland. A cotton gin was built, and his sons S.D. and Wyn built “Granger Camp” for the oil field families. Splendora, just six miles north of New Caney, was developed in the 1880’s by Charles Cox. It became known as Cox’s Switch since Mr. Cox was instrumental in having the HE&WT Railroad put in a narrow gauge spur from Houston for crossties and lumber, resulting in many railroad and lumber related jobs. In 1886, Mr. Cox asked Postmaster M Z King to rename the town Splendora because of the “splendor of its floral environment”. Patton Village was developed by William Patton in the 1950’s as the area’s first real estate development. In the 1960’s Woodbranch Village and Roman Forest, Houston’s “satellite city” became the area’s more restricted real estate developments. Over the last forty years Kingwood and other developments have been established. Kingwood became one of the most successful master planned communities in the nation and today is home to more than 70,000 residents. In 1994, a 4,986 acre state park with 2,404 acres in East Montgomery County was opened. Entrance to the park is just east of New Caney on FM1485. Also that year, Highway 242 was opened, connecting the area to Interstate 45 and the western portion of the county. Our convenient location, less than thirty miles northeast of downtown Houston along U S Highway 59, East Montgomery County is experiencing robust population and commercial growth. Numerous new subdivisions and expansion of existing developments are underway. New commercial tracts are being developed as well. Located less than twenty minutes from George Bush Intercontinental Airport and close to the Port of Houston the area is a prime location for commercial and residential development.

Local History Spanish missionaries and conquistadors settled in the area and in 1837 Montgomery County was established by Governor Sam Houston. Montgomery County was the third county established in the Republic of Texas. Located across the east fork of the San Jacinto River, East Montgomery County has a rich history as well, with some of the earliest settlers making their way here in the 1860’s. Over the years other communities including Porter, New Caney, Splendora, and Grangerland were started and continue to thrive today. Following the development of Bush Intercontinental Airport on the north side of Houston new subdivisions began and brought Roman Forest, Woodbranch Village, Patton Village, and Kingwood. In the early 1840’s settlers were drawn to this area by the 30

Economy & Economic Development

Open for Business More than 60,000 people live in the trade area, and the major markets of Houston, Conroe, and The Woodlands are less than thirty minutes away. The area’s labor force is one of its primary assets. An abundance of workers with strong work ethics in a broad range of professions are available.

to the $800,000s. Also located within the development is the beautiful and challenging Oakhurst Golf Club. Privately owned and separate from the development the course is a daily fee course open to the public. The development also features a community pool and club building that is open to the residents. Several well known home builders are actively Montgomery County’s economy is very strong and continues building in this development. Oakhurst at Kingwood is a to strengthen each year. The continued growth of the entire development of Friendswood Development Company. county and especially the anticipated growth in East Montgomery County is very exciting. Valley Ranch Montgomery County is ranked as the 5th fastest growing county in Texas and 28th in the nation with its populations more than doubling in the last twenty years. With a growth rate of between five and six percent per annum the current population of approximately 425,000 and is projected to top 800,000 in the next twenty-five years. The entire greater Houston region is experiencing this same growth with a projected 1.4 million new households and 1.5 million new jobs over the next twenty-five years. The East Montgomery County area is fast becoming one of the focal points for development in the greater Houston region. Considering its close proximity to Bush Intercontinental Airport, the Port of Houston, downtown Houston and other regional economic centers the area has seen rapid growth in the last two years. While this is exciting, it also requires planning. Regional planning is being led by the Houston Galveston Area Council (HGAC) and involves citizens from across the region meeting to discuss growth issues. Infrastructure and particularly transportation planning is critical to the future of the region. Montgomery County voters overwhelmingly passed a $100 million bond referendum in 2005 to upgrade designated roads throughout the county. In addition $60 million was approved to improve numerous county roads throughout the county. US Hwy 59 and Interstate 45 are also being improved to meet the increased demands with Hwy 59 soon to be completed to interstate standards.

The Valley Ranch project includes over 3,000 lots, 300 plus apartment units, and 1,200,000 square feet of retail space and will give Porter/New Caney a “downtown” that will attract visitors from surrounding areas. D R Horton is currently the exclusive builder in Valley Ranch. Central to the development of Valley Ranch is the construction of the Grand Parkway or Hwy 99. The Grand Parkway will be the third loop around Houston and provide quick access (13.7 miles) to Interstate 45. Construction of Segment G (from I-45 to US Hwy 59) is tentatively scheduled to begin in 2012. Homes in the development currently range in price from the $140’s to the $400’s. The project covers some 1,300 plus acres located from north of the proposed route of the Grand Parkway to just north of FM 1314 in Porter. The acreage surrounds New Caney ISD’s sixth grade campus as well as Valley Ranch Elementary and the football and baseball stadiums. The Villas at Valley Ranch, a luxury apartment complex, opened in the fall of 2008. Valley Ranch is a project of The Signorelli Company of Conroe.

The growth in East Montgomery County also has an impact on the regional economic well being as many of the homes that are being built will be purchased by people who will work in Harris County, and at the same time, many of the new jobs being created will be manned by people who live in neighboring counties and commute into East Montgomery County to work. Growth and development throughout the north Houston region has a significant impact on our area. By working together with our friends and neighbors we can Several new projects, both residential and commercial, are accomplish much! currently being developed. Instrumental in these projects are regional developers such as Friendswood Development Company, The Signorelli Company, Marlin/Atlantis, Hendricks Interests, and others. Projects include residential subdivisions, commercial tracts, or both in several cases. Home prices range from the $90’s to the $800,000’s.

encompasses some 400 acres and is now the home to several light industrial businesses including businesses from Mexico and France. EMCID continues to actively market the area by attending national trade shows and industry shows to share the great things that are happening in East Montgomery County. The most significant project underway is Global Earth Quest Ventures which will include an interactive theme park, hotel/ convention center, numerous restaurants, residential development and other amenities, plus a dinosaur museum/ institute (Earth Quest Institute), this $1.5 billion project alone will change the economic model for East Montgomery County. Global Earth Quest Ventures will be built in phases with phase one beginning in the summer of 2010. This project will bring some 2,700 jobs in just phase one. The entire project is centered around “green” technology. The retail development in Earth Quest coupled with the development of the Valley Ranch Town Center and other local retail centers the area will become a hub for retail sales. Graduating seniors from New Caney and Splendora schools, local home schooled students, private school graduates (within the EMCID district) and adults receiving their GED (and live within EMCID’s district) are eligible for $1,000 college scholarships. These funds can be used at any accredited college, technical school, or university in the country. These funds come from the community development dollars. The EMC Scholarship Foundation (a 501c3 non-profit education foundation) has been established to administer these dollars and scholarships. Community development grants to local organizations are also considered twice each year. An application for funds is required as well as various reporting requirements if funds are received. During the fiscal year 2008-2009 a total of $369,000 in community development grants were awarded. Incentives can also be granted by EMCID to eligible businesses for both start up or existing businesses. In cooperation with Montgomery County these incentives assist in the recruitment of new and expanded businesses to the area. EMCID is governed by an eight member board, elected by the voters within New Caney and Splendora school district boundaries. Directors serve four year staggered terms.

incentives to companies locating within their jurisdictional boundaries (as defined previously). Each situation is on a case-by -case basis and varies based on the number of jobs created, capital improvements made, etc. Montgomery County also offers tax abatements to parties that meet their requirements. The county, under the direction of J. R. Moore, Jr., Tax Assessor & Collector, will present his findings and/ or recommendations to Commissioner’s Court for consideration. All three independent school districts and the college district are pro-business and welcome new entities into the area, even though they cannot grant incentives or abatements under current state law. The formation of municipal utility districts is also possible with the assistance of our State Representatives and State Senators support. With the legislature only meeting in odd numbered years this process is more time sensitive than dealing with EMCID or Montgomery County.
