Katy city officials broke ground Jan. 15 on the site for a new city hall across from the current facility on Avenue C.

Commuters on I-10 have seen some notable changes to the north as construction at Memorial Hermann Hospital Katy continues. What once was a ground-level foundation has turned into the shell of a six-story, 229,000-square-foot expansion of the hospital slated to open next year.
Construction began in May on the $85 million project that will add 52 beds in the patient tower—bringing the hospital’s total to 194 beds—and a four-story, 100,000-square-foot medical plaza for office space west of the hospital.
Marshall B. Heins, chief facility officer for Memorial Herman, said work on READ MORE »
At the time, Katy football coach Gary Joseph said his team, especially the offensive line, had some growing up to do.
The Tigers were walking off the field at Woodforest Bank Stadium in September, heading to the locker room as The Woodlands players and fans were celebrating a decisive 21-point victory that sent shock waves across the state.
Joseph, who has led Katy to three state championships in 10 years, was right. Katy's staple is its powerful running game, but the offensive line had to replace four graduated seniors from from last season.
