MCC Celebrates 4th Year With Over 130,000 Visitors-- is officially celebrating its fourth year on the web. It was predated in the Sienna Plantation area by a neighborhood run website called (2002-2005) which later became (2005-2006). The post below is the first that was issued by the site by the committee for responsible development, a group that has remained involved in local area issues ever since along with expanding throughout the county:

Missouri City Chatter (A blog for Mo-City)

Welcome to the official blog for the residents and citizens of Missouri City, TX to keep up with and follow local issues. This blog was born of controversy but we hope it will be a good place for you and your neighbors to visit and discuss open and honest issues that impact positively or negatively our community. We would like to encourage those posting to identify their neighborhoods and to encourage others to blog/post here. You may remain anonymous when posting but please follow the site guides. Repeated violations will lead to removal.

We will follow the core rules of netiquette located at as our guide and will stop any violations when they come to our attention.


This site was founded by the Committee for Responsible Development which started in the Sienna Plantation area and can be contacted at and grew from a grass roots movement opposed to further apartment development in Missouri City, Texas. Some of the critical issues which grew out of that movement are still with us, such as the campaign contributions and ethics violations filed with the city against the developer backed mayor of Mo-City.

The basic goals of CRD are simple:

-To encourage residents and citizens of Missouri City neighborhoods to get actively involved in their local politics.

-To engage developers and city officials on value added growth and sustainable development over the long-term.

-Allow for more open/honest discussions on controversial issues that often don't get discussed in the community with regard to the above goals.

We look forward to hearing from you and keeping the dialogue going!
