Anything south of Clay, between Hwy 6 and Mason is in fact in KatyISD. It is what I sometimes refer to as The Fringe. It is filled with mainly older, established neighborhoods primarily occupied by hard working mid class decent families who have been there forever, or rent there because it's still fairly affordable and they bust their butt to keep their kids in that school district. I know because they make up a good portion of my lease clients. It is not ghetto. There are some pockets that have declined recently, but it is mostly filled with honest working class blue collar folks. On that note, the same can be said of the southside, especially right along Westgreen and south of I-10. I'm so tired of this class war that has Cinco Ranchers looking down their noses. With out all the people that live in that area you would have nobody making your Starbucks, landscaping your fancy lawns, teaching your over privileged children to read and write or play the piano, policing your gated community.
And yes with the addition of 99 there will be huge growth. And it will be interesting to see what kind of opportunities are made available to The Fringe. 529 is fast becoming The Fringe of South Cypress. That line of separation between Clay and 529 will surely blur very rapidly

Actually, KISD is currently zoned to most of the land west of 99 all the way up to almost West rd, way north of Clay. Perhaps that will change and they'll switch some neighborhoods around with CFISD or WISD. Homes have a Katy address all the way up to fm529, where it turns into Cypress past that point. Homes east of Barker-Cypress from I-10 to 290 all are considered just Houston ETJ and have a 'Houston' address. There may never be a true divide between the two, but I'd be happy to say the 'Katy greater area' ends north of clay rd and the 'Cypress greater area' ends south of fm529. Perhaps we can just call the area between Clay and fm 529 'Bear Creek', although residents of Bear Creek would probably get into the same debate people from Katy & Cypress were having.

I appreciate the map for accuracy, but as you can see west of 99, KISD zone boundaries do extend all the way up to Tuckerton it appears, which is even further north than west rd. Perhaps CFISD and KISD will get together to re-zone based off of a single road, but I doubt anytime soon.
