We had a great time at The State of the City, Rosenberg seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Rosenberg is growing by leaps and bounds! I spoke briefly with the Chief of Police, Dallis Warren and he was happy to report that while the city is growing, crime had actually gone down! We’re also excited about Paragon Outlets‘ new project expecting to break ground soon and hoping to be a part of that for their geotechnical engineering and construction materials testing! This new outlet mall will bring people from all over the area to Rosenberg and create many new jobs both directly and indirectly.
What a way to start off your morning! Nothing like getting to have breakfast with 700 of your closest friends and listening to the LT. Governor, Dan Patrick speak about the goings on in Texas. It was a pleasure to be a part of Precinct 3, Fort Bend County Commissioner Andy Meyers‘ Fundraiser which benefits a great cause: Katy Christian Ministries and Second Mile Mission. The turn out was huge, the information was insightful, and our future here in Texas is bright! congratulations to Costello, Inc for bring the most non-perishables at over 2,000 items!
It’s no wonder why Sugar Land is one of the fastest growing cities in the nation. From the leaders, to the businesses, and the people that live there, Sugar Land is culmination of success and excellence. It is amazing what they have been able to accomplish in the last 20 years. I was a resident of Sugar Land in 1995 and it has been astounding to see the development and progress of this city.
Through the leadership and foresight of Mayor James Thompson and City Council Members Joe Zimmerman, Himesh Gandhi, Amy Mitchell, Harish Jajoo, Bridgett Yeung, and Steve Porter, they have been able to create a breeding ground for businesses to succeed as well as make Sugar Land a beautiful, exciting, and safe place to live. Sugar Land has a bright future ahead of her and we at All-Terra Engineering are excited to be a part of that.
Starting off the New Year with the Fulshear Area Chamber of Commerce, we had the pleasure of listening to Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls. Sheriff Nehls spoke about the the new open carry laws in Texas and also shared some promising information about the increase in population, the decrease in crime, and the increase in solved cases in Fort Bend over the last few years. He also talked about the new proposed Sheriff’s Office to be built in the Fulshear area. We hope to be a part of that project to perform the geotechnical and construction materials testing on the new facility and makes sure the foundation they are building out there in Fulshear is a solid one!
We had a wonderful time supporting the City of Fulshear and learning about what they are doing and where they are heading for the future. Don McCoy, with the Fulshear Area Chamber of Commerce, emceed the event and Tommy Kuykendall, Mayor of Fulshear, updated us about the exciting things happening in their growing city. We were happy to have Jim and Nicole Zimmermann with Crescent Communities as our guests, as well as Brock Crenek with MBCO Engineering, Heath Lyle with Lyle & Perossa, Derek Rogers with the Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce, and our newest addition to the All-Terra family, Julianne Salinas.
I would like to thank Alex Masch with 2Step Photography for capturing the moment with myself, Mayor Tommy Kuykendall, and State Representative John Zerwas.
