Mayor Welcome

As Mayor, it is my privilege to welcome you to Pasadena, Texas! Our city is very unique-large enough to keep up with innovation and progress, without foregoing our small-town feel and neighborly attitude.  We’re located just minutes from Downtown Houston, the Texas Medical Center, the Houston Ship Channel and the perfect place for your next business venture. 

Billions of dollars in new development are coming to Pasadena each year. With our close proximity to Harris County’s industrial sector and the Bayport Terminal, employment opportunities for our residents are always plentiful.

In the past two years we’ve made tremendous strides with infrastructure improvements, including: a total overhaul of Richey Street which is a major artery through Historic Pasadena, $70+ million in additional street improvements and $20 million in drainage upgrades throughout the city. Beginning spring 2020, crews will begin on Phase II of Pasadena’s extensive
flood mitigation project, buoyed by our recent record-setting $105 million FEMA grant.

In addition to these welcomed infrastructure upgrades, enhancements and outreach programs from our parks & recreation, neighborhood network and community relations departments show the commitment this administration has to our residents and business partners. Pasadena’s population is the second-largest in the Greater Houston MSA and we look forward to creating new opportunities and new growth with you. 

It is my honor to welcome you to Pasadena and invite your business to join us on your road to success. To learn more about our city, log on to our website: or follow us on social media.
