Lake Conroe - #1 Relocation Choice

Jet Ski Lake ConroeWhy wouldn’t Lake Conroe and the surrounding areas be the #1 relocation choice for so many new residents?!

You have excellent schools, well planned developments, balanced job opportunities between industry, service, manufacturing, and energy, a beautiful lake for recreation, and friendly neighbors! Companies like ExxonMobil, Andarko, and all the others chose this region for many factors just like these: Affordable housing, mild climate, integrated infrastructure, and skilled workers.

Yet there are two major sectors that must be planned well in advance for it to work.

“Any time you have a population surge like we are seeing, there are two distinct sectors that have to be addressed,” Staley said, “and those sectors are health care and education.”

Staley said that health care is being addressed by the legacy hospitals that have locations in The Woodlands (CHI St. Luke’s, Memorial Hermann, Houston Methodist, MD Anderson Cancer Center), and Texas Children’s Hospital, which is under construction.

According to a 2012 population and demographics survey conducted by Conroe ISD, throughout the next decade the Rayford Road corridor will house five of the top 10 fastest-growing subdivisions in the district.

“With the construction of Grand Parkway and with the opening of ExxonMobil and Anadarko [expansion], and all the other companies that have signed leases, there is a very strong job growth factor that is beginning,” said Jim Holcomb of Holcomb Properties, developer of Imperial Oaks. “In fact, it has already begun.” (source) And it is job growth that causes explosive population growth from familes relocating to the area.

By the time you add in quality of life concerns like green space, playgrounds, entertainment, service industry, recreation, social activities, you have a winning combination right here in Montgomery County.

As far as education is concerned, most likely a second high school will need to be constructed for Oak Ridge and Ann Snyder Elementary School in the fall near the intersection of Rayford Road and Riley Fuzzel Road.

As always, growing pains include more noise, dust, construction delays, detoured traffic, and such. As the dust settles the region will have seen a magnificent amount of carefully planned out growth.  It will be a community that we will all be proud of.
