Environmental Review Coordinator

Fort Bend County

Located just southwest of the City of Houston, Fort Bend has a long history which began when a small log fort was built on the banks of the Brazos River to help protect the settlers moving onto Stephen F. Austin's original Mexican land grants. In fact, the county draws its name from that small fort built in the early 1800s and the small settlement around it, that in 1837 became the county seat of Richmond, Texas. Today, Fort Bend is one of the fastest growing counties in Texas and the United States with a current population exceeding 600,000.
