International District Service To The Local Community
The International District was created by the 80th session of the Texas Legislature in 2007. The bill was sponsored by State Representative Hubert Vo. The goal of the District is to transform part of the Alief neighborhood into a destination point that supports and develops both its business and residential communities.
The IMD is home to almost one hundred thousand residents in a district that is only thirteen square miles. It is also the most culturally diverse area in the city of Houston, Texas.
In the last twenty years, this southwestern part of the city has grown from the raw land we created to the economic model for the entire city. Hundreds of all types of businesses have been opened in our district, including banking, financial service, restaurants and supermarkets.
We are so thankful that the Houston city council once again has confirmed our new Board member nominations, including three new members from different ethnic groups.
Over the past several years, IMD board members have worked very hard to improve the public safety, economy and education areas. Especially in this pandemic period, we have tried to help local residents get assistance to help local businesses overcome financial difficulties .
We are so glad to witness that the City of Houston has budgeted sixty millions dollars to build a multi-used community service center at the corner of Bellaire and Kirkwood. This center will be the future landmark to our district.
