The East End District (formerly the Greater East End Management District) was created in 1999 by the 76th Texas legislature as a tool for economic development and revitalization of the area. A bill to create the district was introduced in the House of Representatives by State Representative Rick Noriega. State Senator Mario Gallegos introduced a bill in the Senate. HB 3692 was signed into law by then Governor George W. Bush on May 10, 1999.
The District receives assessments from commercial property owners and uses funds for infrastructure improvements, beautification, security and public safety, workforce development, and other programs as designated by its board of directors. Assessments, received from commercial property owners, multi-unit housing properties with 13 or more units, and town homes without homestead exemption, are based on the assessed value of real property and hover around $2,000,000 annually.
All programs and services are approved by a District Board of Directors comprised of East End commercial property owners, business owners, and residents, and are developed to:
- Create a safe environment within the District in both perception and reality.
- Enhance the image of the District.
- Improve infrastructure and amenities in the District.
- Attract more business and investments to the District.
- Improve business opportunities, in order to increase economic activity for the business property owners, tenants, and their customers.
The 16 square mile area of the East End District is bounded by Clinton Drive on the north, Loop 610 on the east, Telephone Road to I-45 on the south, and the Houston Belt and Terminal Railroad to U.S. 59 on the west.

More than 3,600 commercial property owners support the East End District through assessments. Commercial property owners, the District’s constituents, pay an assessment rate of $0.15 per $100 valuation, which is spent on services and programs that improve Houston’s East End area, in accordance with the approved 10-year Service Plan. Property values are set by the Harris County Appraisal District. The District’s fiscal year 2016-2017 Budget is approximately $2 million, which supports public safety and security programs, litter removal, and streetscape beautification.
The management district further leverages assessment revenue with grant funding and with public and private sector resources that enable the development of capital improvement projects, green space, trails, trees, lighting, and other amenities that enhance the quality of life for both business owners and residents.
The East End District staff presented the Annual Report at a public hearing on November 3, 2016.
Assessments are collected on behalf of the management district by Equi-Tax, Inc., as of October, 2014, and can be paid on-line through the Equi-Tax, Inc website. Harris County no longer lists the Greater East End Management District on its annual tax bill to property owners. If you have questions about the assessment on your property, please contact us.
EED has constructed or managed $31 million in infrastructure improvements in the East End since 2010. The District’s original investment of $2.5 million in capital funds has been leveraged at a ratio of more than 5:1 in grant funding for sidewalk and bikeway improvements.
The East End District will work with its rate payers, the community, and government partners to ensure that the District becomes a dynamic and distinct community.
