The West Houston Association (WHA) was formed in 1979 as a not-for-profit group to promote high quality, sustainable growth. WHA advocates for an area of 1,000 square miles in the western portion of Harris County and parts of Fort Bend and Waller Counties (“Greater West Houston”). Over the past 40 years, Greater West Houston transformed from a few sleepy suburban and rural communities bisected by the Katy Freeway into an international, connected, and vibrant destination. The leadership of the West Houston Association has been instrumental in the manner and type of development, infrastructure, and educational offerings across this region. In 2018, the West Houston Associated created the West Houston 2060 Plan as a guide on how to continue to think about the future of the region.
