After three unsuccessful attempts, the city of Conroe has been designated a Texas Cultural District by the state arts commission. The designation was announced at the Sept. 8 council meeting and was the culmination of more than a year of work that built on previous applications, the Downtown Conroe Development Plan and strategic planning with over 20 downtown cultural arts organizations. Cultural districts are special zones that drive economic development, community vitality and attract tourists, according to information from the Texas Commission on the Arts.
