Johnson Development, and Coleman Realty. 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. These included the planned extension of Buffalo Speedway, the regional county park on West Orem near the Fort Bend Tollway, the Hiram Clarke Multi-Service Center on West Fuqua and the site of the proposed Olivet University Biblical College across the street, the $17 million new Houston Police Department substation in Cambridge Village Park, and the coming facelift for South Main with new lighting in preparation for Houston hosting the 2017 Super Bowl.

Afterwards, the developers were treated to a lunch at the Power Center, video presentations, and additional demographic information about the District, including comparative per capita crime statistics showing the area as one of the safest in the city.
