Infrastructure Improvements Benefit Our Entire Community
The Westwood Magnolia Parkway Improvement District (WMPID) was formed in 2003 to support infrastructure and public safety projects in the area of the FM 1488/2978 junction. As a partnership between local governments and the state, WMPID is focused exclusively on projects in our area that directly benefit the businesses and community members living, working, and shopping in here.
Growth within the District has been remarkable and WMPID’s infrastructure projects have helped to make that possible. For example, the extension of Research Forest Drive made it easier for people to access the Westwood Village Shopping Center, generating $1.494 billion in revenue, 38% of which is attributable to this access.
How We Work for You
As a local organization, WMPID can quickly identify needs and then fund local infrastructure improvements to address them. This includes purchasing a new fire truck, paying for local police officers, expanding and widening roads, installing street lights, and completing beautification projects. Projects are paid for by using a portion of the retail sales tax paid by consumers – many of whom travel to our community using roads WMPID paid for! This is a win-win for the businesses in our community.
