Vision Statement 

“Fulshear is a community, where residents, businesses, and civic leaders are committed partners in service to build a city of excellence.”

Target Industries

Given Fulshear’s proximity to the Energy Corridor (which is centered along Interstate 10, we have access to particularly high concentrations of workers in architecture & engineering, business and financial operations, and computer and mathematical occupations. As such, industries as defined by the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) generally define Fulshear’s target industries, particularly for our geographic target zones:

Corporate headquarters and offices

Professional and business services




Partnership Opportunities

Fulshear is an ever-engaged partner with numerous economic development partners – and increasingly so.
For starters, Fulshear actively works with its ever-growing local chamber, the Fulshear Katy Area Chamber of Commerce, for business development and community events throughout the year.Fulshear works with these partners for business development and lead generation:

  • Katy Area Economic Development Council
  • Fort Bend Economic Development Council
  • Greater Houston Partnership
  • State of Texas Governor’s Office of Economic Development

Fulshear also continues to develop a repertoire of support service providers for small businesses. In addition to FKACC, there are the Houston District of the Small Business Administration and the Fort Bend County Small Business Development Center through the University of Houston.
Fulshear also works with all aforementioned partners to provide our local small businesses with access to training, employment, grant, and loan programs as they become available.
If you have any questions about doing business in Fulshear, contact us at We’ll partner with you by directly assisting you or pointing you in the right direction.

Target Investment Zones

Fulshear encourages the development of key opportunity areas through the strategic investment of the City’s and EDCs’ resources. To this end, Fulshear has designated four geographic target investment zones – (1) Downtown, (2) FM 1093, (3) Texas Heritage Parkway, and (4) FM 359.


As Fulshear has continued to undergo a metamorphosis, from a farming village to a thriving small city, it has found itself in a position of establishing a new framework for encouraging and streamlining the development process.

Economic Development has brought about the Livable Center (Downtown) Study and the Economic Development Strategic Plan. Strategies and programs across City government include the Consolidated Development Ordinance, Parks & Pathways Master Plan, and Downtown Streetscape Plan.

Building upon that momentum, Fulshear is currently in the process of devising its first-ever economic development incentive policy, pursuant to our Strategic Plan. New incentives will be designed and intended to be catalytic in bringing about the type of transformative projects that the City is encouraging.
