Mr. Paderanga was presented with the 15-year award during this year’s annual planning meeting for RGME’s extensive and ongoing contribution to the county’s development, beginning in 2005.
Waller County has experienced significant population growth over the past 15 years, going from 38,260 residents in 2006 to 59,781 in 2021 – a 56.2% increase – with the 20-34 age group experiencing the fastest growth at 72.%. During that same period, population grew 26.4% in the state of Texas and 11.2% in the U.S.
Located northwest of Houston, Waller County is home to Prairie View A&M University and the cities of Hempstead, Brookshire, Pattison and Pine Island. The Waller County EDP is comprised on an appointed board of directors with members representing the county commissioners and county judge, each chamber of commerce, each local economic development group within the county, and Prairie View A&M.
