The Tomball Regional Health Foundation, which helps fund health and wellness initiatives in the community, is planning to build a 9,400-square-foot headquarters with amenities including a walking path, fitness station, sensory garden and pavilion, according to the June 17 agenda packet.

The TRHF originally requested the land to be rezoned to general retail, but council ultimately decided to rezone it to the office zoning district due to the uses allowed under the general retail zoning district.

“If you look at what [the TRHF] is planning on building, it’s an office,” council member Randy Parr said during the meeting. “Second, for general retail, it would open up [that land] to just about anything in the world should somewhere down the road [the TRHF] decide to sell the property.”
