The East Aldine District was created by the Texas Legislature in June 2001 to enhance the physical, social, and economic well being of Aldine. It is a governmental entity administered by a nine-member, volunteer board of directors.
Projects and services of the district are funded through a 1-cent sales tax that generates approximately $3.5 million in annual revenue as of 2009. This sales tax was adopted by area voters in August 2001 and took effect on January 1, 2002 bringing the effective total tax rate within the district to 8.25 percent.
The 14.8-square-mile management district is located in unincorporated Harris County, 15 miles north of downtown Houston. It is bordered approximately by Little York, the Hardy Toll Road, FM 525, U.S. 59, and Homestead Road.
In August 2002, the board of directors adopted an eight-point Service and Action Plan to address Aldine’s water/sewer infrastructure, transportation, environment, health, public safety, and economy. Since then, the district has taken direct action to fulfill the goals outlined in this plan.
The East Aldine District board of directors meets on the third Tuesday of each month, 7 p.m., at the district office, 5202 Aldine Mail Route, Houston, Texas 77039.
