Also included were Liberty Homes, Leland Woods, Vanity Homes, Guess Group, Cernus Development, Womack Development, Cerritos Custom Homes, Contemporary Garden Homes and Interloop Homes, the Greater Houston Builders Association, and Liberty Bank and Trust Mortgage Division.

Throughout the tour, Councilman Green’s Chief of Staff Donald Perkins pointed out area highlights and proposed projects.
