The Five Corners District was created in 2007 by the 80th Legislature, through the support of State Senator Rodney Ellis and Representative Dr. Alma Allen. The District was created to enhance the physical, social, and economic well-being of the community.
Five Corners District (the “District”) proposes to provide services and improvements in the southern area of the City of Houston, Texas, as authorized by House Bill No. 4134, 80th Legislature, Regular Session, 2007, and amended by House Bill No. 4795, 81st Legislature, Regular Session, 2009, and Chapter 375, Texas Local Government Code (the “Act”). The District proposes to levy an assessment for services and improvements payable in annual installments over the twelve–year period of the 2011-2022 Service and Improvement Plan and Assessment Plan (the “Plan”) as allowed in the Plan. Funds received from this assessment will be used to provide services and improvements including administration for the following:
