The Houston Northwest Chamber of Commerce launched Grow Northwest to address a need in northwest Harris County, to package and brand the area and its many amenities for commercial consideration. But do we have a product ready to package?
Northwest Houston is surrounded by funded economic development entities, while our community’s success is a result of grass roots know–how. When we saw a need for a performing arts venue, we opened The Centrum. When a fine arts museum was viewed as a priority, we raised funds for the Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Art. When we wanted to landscape the medians along Cypress Creek Parkway, the community rallied and the result is a pleasant, daily reminder of what community passion can accomplish. We need an economic development machine and the Chamber’s Economic Development Initiative, Grow Northwest, was born. http://www.houstonnwchamber.org
