Our History

In 1990, commercial property owners realized that for the area to experience positive growth, it needed an organization dedicated to coordinating and guiding this developing community. More than 100 of these property owners petitioned the Texas Legislature in support of such an organization, and in 1991, the Greenspoint District was born.
