Katy to See More Development Northwest of I-10

After years of accelerated growth, residential development in south Katy is approaching build-out.

Demographics firm Population and Survey Analysts projects Katy ISD’s boundaries will be built-out south of I-10 by 2028, while the construction of thousands of new homes is expected to continue north of I-10 and southwest into Lamar CISD.

Six years ago, 31% of the land within KISD boundaries was undeveloped, according to PASA. In 2018, 21% of the land was undeveloped.

PASA demographer Pat Guseman, who has been working with KISD since 1996, said the district has several characteristics which make it prone to reach build-out, including its high quality of life, stable socio-economic status and high passage rates for standardized tests.
