By Claude Hunter
Note: This timeline provides a summary of events in Houston's and The Woodland's history. Note that as early as 1954, the relationship between ground faulting and the withdrawal of ground water from greater Houston area aquifers was reported. This may partially explain fault lines, such as the Big Bear Fault, recently shifting from north of Jones Forest along FM 1488 and west of FM 2978, to areas in The Woodlands. Thus, those who waste excessive amounts of water may be a factor in effects claimed in the lawsuit referenced below.Suit claims homes built on fault lines

03.15.13 By Howard Roden, The Villager
Note: Sales and Hotel Taxes contribute over 50 percent of The Township's total budget and can result in continued lowering of residential taxes. Mobility improvements to keep abreast of growth will maximize this effect. Township establishes new amenities program

Note: These articles provide an excellent summary of the future for The Woodlands. The Impact News article includes a rendering of the new Hughes Landing Community project on East Shore. A key part of our region's success relative to other areas in the US is due to efforts by The Economic Development Partnership and their successes in bringing quality businesses to our area. See: www.edpartnership.net/business_climate.html
for examples. Business activity and hotel taxes in The Woodlands pay over half our total operating budget, thus appreciably lowering residential taxes and providing high quality job opportunities and income for many residents.

Identifying different needs
02.05.13 By Catherine Dominguez, The Villager
Note: During most of the 30 past plus years of unprecedented growth in our region, The Woodlands Area Chamber of Commerce Mobility Team has coordinated our area's mobility improvements. The Woodlands is served by four County Commissioners. All of them, plus the expertise of The Developer of The Woodlands and leaders of The Exxon Mobil/Springwoods Master-planned community south of The Woodlands, should be included to ensure continuity of success for our region. Redundant mobility committees primarily representing only part of our region may not be the most effective regional approach.Burglaries on the rise in The Woodlands

08.28.12 By Catherine Dominguez, The Villager
Note by Claude: I attended essentially all Woodlands Area Chamber Mobility Committee meetings for many years past. I recall that Shenandoah officials failed to attend or participate in learning about these proposed projects in several mid 2012 Mobility Committee meetings when they were presented, openly discussed and voted to send them forward to The Chamber with a resolution to submit and support the projects. Perhaps they also missed full Chamber meeting(s) in which The Chamber voted to approve the resolution (dated July 27). The projects were then submitted in time for the August 1, 2012 deadline for the 2013-16 Transportation Improvement Program by the Houston Galveston Area Council.
