More improvements are coming to Katy Historic Town Square.

The details

Katy City Council approved a $62,000 contract with LJA Engineering for Katy Corner improvements to continue efforts in restoring Katy Historic Town Square at a March 25 meeting.

The 25-by-25-foot space at the corner of Avenue C and Second Street will feature:
  • The relocation of geese sculptures, impacted by Texas Department of Transportation project on I-10
  • An installation of low seat walls, fencing and/or metalwork mimicking prairie grasses becoming the background of the area

The efforts to revitalize the area began with discussions in 2012, with construction beginning in 2015, as previously reported by Community Impact.

Other area improvements already completed include:
  • Construction of new City Hall
  • Repurpose of existing buildings to create Civic Center and Visitor Center
  • Green space and improved landscaping
  • Murals near the water tower
The revitalization project is set to be completed by mid-October ahead of the Katy Rice Harvest Festival, officials said.

Stay tuned

With approval, LJA Engineering will begin schematic design, which is estimated to take four to six weeks followed by design development and construction documentation, according to agenda documents. Once construction commences, it should be completed within three months.
