An economic development tool known as a 380 agreement is being used to fund some $18 million worth of infrastructure and roadway improvements along a stretch of Texas 288 designed to attract grocery stores, restaurants ad other shops to a part of Houston that has virtually no commercial development.
Retailers have avoided the area between Orem Drive and Almeda-Genoa because Texas 288 doesn’t have any acess roads running parallel to its main lanes, said land developer Sam Yager III of Sam Yager Inc., which is developing the City Park residential project in the area.
