I like the hometown feel in Mont Belvieu. Isn't this going to ruin it?

The very specific goal, theme, and intent of Riceland is to preserve and enhance Mont Belvieu’s hometown feel. Riceland boasts one of the deepest historical connections to the area – The direct ancestors of the landowner family, who are still involved in the development, came to the Mont Belvieu/Barbers Hill area in 1824 (then Mexico) and have farmed many parts of what Riceland is today since that time. This is why Riceland, along with its land-owner partners, created The Riceland Master Planned Community with one goal in mind: to preserve Mont Belvieu’s hometown feel for the next 100 years for both its current and future residents. West Chambers County, and more specifically Mont Belvieu, is one of the fastest growing areas in the country. So, growth and development will continue to explode around us as a community. That’s why it is imperative that Riceland, in partnership with the City of Mont Belvieu, works to preserve our hometown as that happens.
