Katy is a colorful and affluent community located just 30 minutes due west of Houston, well known for its Southern hospitality and Texas charm. Katy represents a nice way to enjoy a safe, friendly family environment while still being close enough to the big city to enjoy the cultural diversity, entertainment, and business opportunities that go along with it. The Katy area has been the site of one of the nation’s largest gas fields since the early 40’s, which has been a great benefit to the economy of the region. Most recently the development of industrial sites, both in the east and west of the city, have added more growth to this thriving economy. Despite a robust and expanding economy, Katy remains affordable. With a modest cost of living and a well-paid workforce, the city makes good economic sense for most people considering relocation. Combine local economics with a small, close-knit atmosphere and residents have a wonderful choice for raising a family.
