The City provides the highest quality of life for its residents. Beautiful neighborhoods, master-planned communities and abundant green space for parks and recreation. Katy ISD ranks among the top school districts in the country, offering students excellent education. Many large, mid-size and small businesses call Katy home, and the City of Katy is proactive in economic development to create a business-friendly environment.
Katy offers the best of both worlds - the charm of a small town, but all the conveniences of a large city. It is rich in traditions and heritage and boasts a community pride that is unmatched. Whether you're a young professional, growing family, retired senior or business owner, Katy is your hometown.
