There are already a ton of nice homes zoned to Katy. not sure about cy springs area, but Morton ranch's zone isn't bad either. Besides, Katy plans for a new high school at 529 I believe (which is the border between cy-fair and Katy in that area IIRC. Waller ISD is also in that area and will have some homes built there in the Bridgeland development.

Right now GP and 529 is zoned for Cy-Springs but they have a new High School, Middle School and Elementary School slated for FM 529 and Westgreen.

New concept in works as design continues on Cy-Fair ISD multi-school site - Community Impact Newspaper

The HS is scheduled to open 2016. I'm sure that is part of the Newland strategy- having a brand new school to sell to new home owners.

Katy ISD is planning a new High School, Middle School and Elementary School at Stockdick School Rd and Peek Rd. This location is right next to Vantana Lakes a new 460 acre development. Vantana Lakes is selling homes from Perry and D.R. Horton from 190k-400k. Just north of this on Stockdick School Rd is a new development called Kings Crossing.

King Crossing | Houston TX New Homes | Pulte Homes

I have not been able to find the size or price point of this development. It is slated to open later this year. Right now both of these developments would go to Katy High. So, with these new higher priced subdivisions it looks they will be able sell the fact that new schools are on their way. According to this Katy ISD presentation it looks like this High School will open 2018. If you click on this link,

http://kisd2.katyisd.org/communicati...esPlanning.pdf

look at pages 7,8 & 9 to see what kind of HUGE growth Katy ISD is projecting north of I-10

Closer to I-10 but still on the north side there is a 1500 acre MPC called Cane Island. It will be all in the Katy city limits. Pricing is supposed to be from 300k-800k. This is scheduled to start selling in 2015.

Looks like the North side will be getting some nicer developments over the next few years. Hopefully they will do well.

The north side of Katy off Grand Parkway will mirror the south side of GP, IMO. The developers will be able to build everything from the ground up and make it nice. As much as some don't like to mention, it all depends on the price point of these neighborhoods. No doubt some from the south side of Katy will move to the north side after it gets a little more established. The mentality out here does seem like newer is better.

I really believe North Katy will soon be the new hot spot for new home buyers looking out that way.

N. Katy is where the newest neighborhoods will be built and buyers love the fancy, latest & greatest MPC amenities. Newer neighborhoods always out-do older neighborhoods in the amenity department. Popular beach pools will be outdone with much more exciting things.

New neighborhoods in N. Katy will be closest in proximity to Houston for buyers wanting new construction. Currently, the bulk of new homes in Katy are being built way out near Fulshear.....and rush hour commute from these areas (like Cinco) aren't pretty.

N. Katy is about to build brand new schools. The newest schools in Katy are traditionally a big plus for new buyers. Ex: Taylor used to be the "it school", now it's Cinco/Seven Lakes.......and so on.

My money is on North Katy being a big success.

I remember the north vs south katy debate reached its zenith a couple of months ago when Katy ISD failed in its effort to build the $68M football stadium....the "south siders" those in the MPC's of Cinco, Cross Creek Ranch, Seven Meadows, etc, took glee in denying the "north siders", especially the Katy High school gravytrainers, the pleasure of a new football palace for their state title contenders...the north siders were upset because a new FFA project was included in the bond proposal......Katy ISD still needs another football stadium

I live close to the "south siders" but not in Katy...Ive heard random conversation being thrown out about the north side of I-10 being some sort of "ghetto", where the "working class live" not quite alief or sharpstown or third ward, but a world away from the land of milk and honey and utopia on the south side of I-10 where the stepford wives, the soccer moms, the starbucks crowd and the doctors and lawyers live...

I think this north side vs south side of I-10 debate is much more about economics than it is about race. Most upper middle class families have the ability to pay $250k plus to live in the type of comfort they want (even though thousands of our friends and neighbors are struggling to keep up with the joneses), while those who make a modest and comfortable living "have to settle" for the affordable neighborhood and all that comes with it.

I don't think there is anything "ghetto" about the north side of I-10 at all...the people who say that garbage have never ever lived in a real ghetto environment where the struggle to make a decent living is real everyday...furthermore, if these Taj Mahal high schools like Cypress Springs, Morton Ranch, Cypress Lakes, Mayde Creek or Cypress Ranch have a reputation as being "ghetto" because of the demographics, then I encourage each parent out there to withdraw their child and enroll them in any of the 18 failing HISD high schools or any other failing school in the Houston area to see the difference. I bet a parent with a kid in a failing school will trade places with you in a second.

I took the drive down the new grand parkway on sunday between I-10 and 290 and was just amazed at all the open land the will be available for development, and you can bet anything you want that every piece of land out there will be gobbled up and developed at some point in the next 10-15 years. See Pearland and Manvel for more information.

there will be thousands of homes, commercial developments and enterprise out there and it will place major burden on Katy ISD, Cy-Fair ISD and even Waller ISD to expand and go to the voters with more bond proposals for schools.

based on a recommendation I received on Saturday night, I went to a new development called Morton Creek Ranch off of Morton rd and 99 and when driving in, I immediately thought "starter neighborhood" due to the lack of amenities, lack of mature trees, and the cookie cutter type homes being built by Postwood homes. If these are the type of neighborhoods that will sprout up, then it will more of the same, but Im sure like everywhere else, each neighborhood will have specific price points.

What I really find strange in neighborhoods all over Houston is the amount of vehicles parked in driveways and on the street. some homes have four cars in the driveway, with a couple on the curb in front meaning multiple adults or families live there....im just speculating, but I see this all over the city in the course of my travels to see different neighborhoods.

It's not like the DFW metroplex, where all the suburbs are their own incorporated cities with well-defined boundaries.

So, what are they calling all that developed area North of Clay, West of Hwy 6, and South of 290, if Cypress isn't claiming it?

I always thought that area was where the Katy, Houston and Cypress borders met. For example I think Copperfield would be "North of Clay, West of Hwy6 and South of 290" but it is located in Houston, not Katy or Cypress. It is all CY-Fair ISD. Certain subdivisions belong to one of the 3 cities in that area.

The actual neighborhood Copperfield is actually technically just north of fm529, west of hwy 6, east of barker cypress, and south of west rd, but I could see you getting things mixed up a lil considering most of the adjacent suburbs look the exact same, or perhaps that entire area is now considered Copperfield and my view is outdated.
