Learn About Our County

We work together to support a growing, diverse set of communities in both business and everyday life.

Prioritizing Infrastructure

Strategically positioned on the growing southwest side of Houston, Fort Bend boasts an integrated infrastructure that easily connects to the rest of Greater Houston. Due to the county’s rapid growth, road construction and expansion have remained critical issues to ensure sufficient access to roads. The county also has three Class I railroads, two airports, and access to a foreign trade zone, two international airports, and two deep water ports. Abundant land and shovel-ready sites have caught the attention of the larger business community demonstrated in exponential commercial growth.

Access is Our Strength

We are perfectly situated in the Greater Houston Region for access to Ports, Air, Rail, Highways, and beyond.

Our communities boast a tremendous quality of life, with exceptional schools and varied recreation, and have a growing commercial sector, attributes which draw in the best and brightest, deepening our available talent pool.

Our People Set Us Apart

We are the most diverse county in Texas, 3rd in the nation. And we think that makes us stronger.

As Fort Bend County Judge, I am proud that our county and private businesses work together to employ more Fort Bend residents, eliminate unnecessary obstacles, and ensure all of our communities thrive and succeed to build a strong and more prosperous future for all.
