About East Montgomery County
Located just north of Bush Intercontinental Airport and Houston the East Montgomery County area includes eight distinct communities and that are often referred to as simply “East County”. The communities of Porter, New Caney, Splendora, Roman Forest, Woodbranch Village, Patton Village, Grangerland and a portion of Kingwood are located in the area. While most of the area is un-incorporated, a good portion of the area falls within the extraterritorial jurisdiction of the City of Houston. The remaining area falls under the jurisdiction of Montgomery County with regard to permits and ordinances with the exception of the four incorporated cities of Patton Village, Roman Forest, Splendora, and Woodbranch Village.
