CONTACT AND MEETING INFORMATION:


LOCATION: This super neighborhood includes El Dorado, Oates Prairie and OST Acres. El Dorado/Oates Prairie is in northeast Houston outside of Loop 610 and consists of a collection of small subdivisions and scattered industrial facilities.

COMMUNITY DESCRIPTION AND HISTORY: Oates Prairie is a residential area begun when the area was rural and which developed further because of its proximity to jobs in Houston and the Channel industries. El Dorado is a typical tract home subdivision. OST Acres is a large-lot subdivision close to Loop 610. The route of the new Crosby Freeway (proposed Hwy 90) crosses an eastern corner of the community. The excellent access the new freeway and existing thoroughfares provide makes this area desirable for further development of warehouse and industrial facilities on the remaining large tracts of undeveloped land.
