The land across from the Katy Mills Mall might not look like much, but the city is set on turning it into a boardwalk with a convention center. Officials say everything right now is in the preliminary phase. Katy does own some of the property near the pond but the city still needs to purchase more land from the developer. They say a boardwalk where families can take a nice stroll is a great way to enjoy nature.
The big attraction would be a 55,000 square ft. convention center that could host up to 2,000 people and even draw some entertainment.
