Gulfton Complete Communities Is…

Gulfton is a culturally diverse, international community with over 50 languages spoken and is home to 40,000 residents. Although it includes two small areas of single-family homes, its large apartment complexes dominate the area’s landscape along with scattered commercial and light industrial uses. Most of Gulfton was originally developed as a rural subdivision called Westmoreland Farms.

Often described as the Ellis Island of current time, Gulfton is the most densely populated community in Houston, with about 90 apartment complexes and 71% Hispanic residents including immigrants from Mexico and Central America.

Gulfton is known for its compassion and services to help newcomers into the country, city, and area. Although traditionally a Salvadoran and Mexican neighborhood, many immigrants have begun coming from different Latin-American and Middle Eastern countries in search of these resources and services.

    The City’s “Corral the Grease” Program

    The City’s “Corral the Grease” program is an education and community engagement program designed to reduce sewer overflows within the City. Sewer overflows from cooking grease and wipes being disposed into our wastewater system is an especially large problem in the Fort Bend/SW Houston area. This problem can be avoided if residents properly dispose of these items, so we are working to educate the area’s residents.
