Recent Changes in Fresno

With its prime location on state highway 6 south and FM 521 in unincorporated Fort Bend County, developers have recently built large bedroom communities over what was once forest and grazeland, and a number of first time homeowners have made the Fresno area home.


The demographics in the Fresno area have changed dramatically since the last US Census in 2000 due to a large increase in home building, and the area is now mostly made up of first time homeowners of different ethnic backgrounds in the new housing communities, with Hispanics holding a majority in the older areas of Fresno.


The area is heavily democratic in nature, and due to population increases in the area, Fresno was switched from Fort Bend county precinct two jurisidiction in 2003 and is now located within Fort Bend county precinct one, which is located primarly on the western side of Fort Bend county, some 25-30 miles away from Fresno, which is located in far eastern Fort Bend County.


Among the largest communities in Fresno are the six neighborhoods that make up the Fort Bend MUD #23 area. Teal Run, the oldest of the neighborhoods, was stared in the early 1990's.


The Estates of Teal Run, located on Raab and Sycamore Rd's, was started in 1999.


Teal Run North (Villages of Teal Run and Teal Run Meadows), located just off of Teal Bend Blvd, directly adjacent to both Teal Run and Teal Run Estates, was started in 2001. There are over 3100 total homes in the Fort Bend MUD #23 area in 2006.


NewPoint Estates, located across from Teal Run on hwy 6 and Darby Rd, is an area for acreage type home sites, stables and expensive properties. A number of Houston area professional athlethes make this neighborhood home.


Winfield Lakes, which is located on Trammel Fresno Rd, was started in 2004.


Andover Farms, which is located on state highway 6 and south post oak rd, was started in 2004.


Cambridge Falls, a David Weekley homes site, located right next to Winfield Lakes, started with infastructure additions (lights, gas, water, sewer lines, streets) in 2005 and has yet to build their first home.


The newly built Fort Bend Tollway has given eastern Fort Bend County residents another option of travel into the city of Houston, as the Tollway is 6.2 miles long from Highway 6 to Highway 90 in southwest Houston, and eventually will travel all the way to loop 610. The average commute time for those living in eastern Fort Bend County using the full route from Highway 6 to loop 610(when it opens) should average 20 minutes. A typical trip down FM 521, which turns into Almeda in Houston, or hwy 288 south into the Texas Medical center takes at least 30-45 minutes in rush hour traffic.
