Purpose; Declaration of Intent


The creation of the district is essential to accomplish the purposes of Sections 52 and 52-a, Article III, and Section 59, Article XVI, Texas Constitution, and to other public purposes stated in this chapter. By creating the district and in authorizing Harris County, the City of Houston, and other political subdivisions to contract with the district, the legislature has established a program to accomplish the public purposes set out in Section 52-a, Article III, Texas Constitution.


The creation of the district is necessary to promote, develop, encourage, and maintain employment, commerce, economic development, the public welfare, transportation, housing, tourism, convention and convocation activities, recreation, the arts, entertainment, and safety in the greater Greenspoint area of Harris County.


This chapter and the creation of the district may not be interpreted to relieve Harris County or the City of Houston from providing the level of services provided as of August 26, 1991, to the area in the district or to release the county or the city from the obligations of each entity to provide services to that area. The district is created to supplement and not to supplant the county or city services in the area in the district.
