I have been reading the forums for a bit now and I have to address something. I have read over and over again how South Katy is so much better than North Katy. This is a actually only true if you have never explored living in Old Katy North of I-10. I live in a beautiful area called Hunters Terrace. It is the last subdivision in North Katy off Katy Hockley Road.
Hunters Terrace is a great custom neighborhood with unique custom homes. The schools are awesome and there is a new Junior High going in in 2013 and the overall feel of the neighborhood is like a neighborhood should be. People wave to each other, look after each others houses, and walk their dogs together, come over for coffee and have bbq's together.

I am sorry but if you live in Old Katy, you don't consider Fry Road or even Mason Katy at all, even some of the addresses east of Grand Parkway/south of I-10 have changed to Houston now - not Katy. Old Katy has the Katy Tigers, Antique shops, dog parks and the Lakes of Katy (water sport tourney's) and best of all country with real trees that can't be cut down for commercial due to deed restrictions. I have to tell you that if you have not explored anything but Cinco Ranch and Fry/Mason North area - you have not explored Katy at all.

People take a drive and get out of your box, and please stop trashing my beloved Old Katy (real Katy North)

Agreed. Old Katy is a jewel. My goal is to explore it more often.

You are absolutely correct. I include myself among the majority that don't even think about old Katy when I think of Katy above I-10 - but instead of the huge mass of homes that are east of it.

Same thing about Sugar Land. When I tell people Sugar Land is nice - I don't even think of the part that is adjacent to Alief, which is not so hot. (Of course, I don't take them there, either!)

Very true. Most people on this forum who always lump the words 'North' and 'Bad' together pobably have never visited your subdivision, or the one right before it, with huge lots, huge oak and pine trees. Most people only hear of the mega communities South of I10.

This seems more like a "City of Katy" vs "unincorporated Katy" debate.

I live in Cinco, but grew up visiting my g.mother and g.father in "Old" Katy. We went to church and had drinks at the old drugstore. I love it still. We eat there and go to the Farmer's Market. Big trees, old houses, new houses, lots of great things there. Yes, the Katy Tigers for sure!!!

I am not sure this is a debate, but more recognition that "unincorporated Katy" as it is called does not encompass Katy as a whole. It is actually more like Houston than Katy in it's appearance and feel.

The city of Katy (or Old Katy) is still a small town with small town values and neighbors who care about each other. It is not just an address for taxes.

I merely wanted to point out that there are people moving to this part of the state that think Cinco and the Fry/Morton districts are all Katy is - this is simply not so. I read where people moving here want the kind of neighborhoods that Old Katy has to offer and it is filled with the same "class" of people as Cinco and other South Katy subdivisions. But Old Katy is North of I-10.

Just reminding people not to put a tag on half of what Katy has to offer and call it good, if they do then they are missing some of the best that Katy brings to the table.
