Jeremy Austin, PE and Tommy Cromer, PE of BBI’s Public Infrastructure group recently attended the Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce State of the City Missouri City luncheon, which was situated next to the recently opened Houston Community College Center for Entrepreneurship, Technology, and Health and the soon-to-be-reopened Missouri City Library.
Guests at this year’s State of the City address learned about the City’s renewed focus on economic development and how proactive approaches to community development and redevelopment are preparing the City for future success. Participants also learned about the City’s many financial successes and changes and how the effects of Hurricane Harvey were managed in 2017.
“Our forward-thinking initiatives, exemplified this year through our ongoing economic development study, continue to be key to our City’s success and growth,” said Missouri City Mayor Allen Owen. “We have been able to proactively capitalize on our strategic partnerships with community leaders to foster future growth and build on our previous accomplishments.”
BBI was delighted to gain insight on the many community and global partnerships that are shaping the City’s future resulting in Missouri City’s status as one of the nation’s premier places to live, work, and play.
