Below is some general information about Baytown:
Baytown is a city within Harris County and partially in Chambers County in the Gulf Coast region of the US state of Texas. Located within HoustonÐThe WoodlandsÐSugar Land metropolitan area, it lies along both State Highway 146 and Interstate 10. It is the fourth-largest city within this metropolitan area. As of 2010, Baytown had a population of 71,802. Baytown is located at the mouth of the San Jacinto River on Galveston Bay, 22 miles east of Houston. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 35.45 square miles, of which 32.7 square miles is land and 0.5 square miles, is covered by water. Baytown is located on the gulf coastal plain, and its vegetation is classified as temperate grassland and marshes. The municipalities have been built on reclaimed marshes, swamps, and prairies, which are all still visible in undeveloped parts of the Bay Area. Baytown is bordered by water on three sides. Along the south and west is Galveston Bay. On the east is Cedar Bayou. The city is roughly bordered along the north by Interstate 10. Portions of the city to the east of Cedar Bayou lie in Chambers County, Texas. Flatness of the local terrain and proximity to the bay have made flooding a recurring problem for the area. Baytown and surrounding communities once relied on groundwater for its needs, but severe land subsidence has forced much the city to turn to ground-level water sources.
The land beneath Baytown consists of layers of sand and clay to great depths. These layers were created by millennia of river-borne sediments which gradually incorporated plant and animal matter, creating the petroleum deposits for which the Gulf Coast is now known. The region around the city has numerous faults, many considered active, but none has produced significant earthquakes in recorded history. These faults tend to move at a smooth rate in what is termed fault creep, which reduces the risk of an earthquake. The one significant earthquake that has been reported in the area was the result of an underground water and petroleum extraction.
The centerpieces of Baytown’s economies are three industrial districts the city has created, all outside the city limits but within its extra-territorial jurisdiction. These districts primarily support petroleum and petrochemical processing. The anchors of the business community are ExxonMobil, Bayer, and Chevron Phillips. The ExxonMobil Baytown Complex, founded in 1919, is one of the world’s largest industrial complexes. The Baytown Refinery located there is the largest in the United States. The Bayer Baytown Industrial Park is the largest of Bayer’s U.S. chemical processing sites producing a variety of petrochemical products. The Cedar Bayou Chemical Plant is similarly Chevron Phillips largest manufacturing site. The Cedar Crossing Business Park is a newer and growing industrial district which is quickly acquiring new tenants such as Jindal Steel and Power Limited and Samson Controls. In addition to the heavy industry in the business community, major regional warehouse and distribution centers exist as well, including Home Depot and Walmart. As of 2006 the largest taxpayers in the city are ExxonMobil Company, CenterPoint Energy, Verizon Southwest, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., Continental Airlines, Inc., Valero Marketing & Supply, Car Son Bay LP, Memorial NW Pavilion Trust, Camden Property Trust, and LCY Elastomers LP.
Baytown Nature Center, located on a 450-acre peninsula along the Houston Ship Channel and surrounded on three sides by Burnet Bay, Crystal Bay, and Scott Bay, is both a recreation area and a wildlife sanctuary that is home to hundreds of bird species, mammals, reptiles, and aquatic species. Royal Purple Raceway is a motorsports complex featuring National Hot Rod Association races and a weekly drag racing program. Established in 1988, the venue accommodates 40,000 fans and included a high-banked dirt oval race track that hosts races each year from March through October. San Jacinto Mall is a large regional shopping mall located in Baytown, Texas along Interstate 10. It is currently managed by Triyar Cannon Group. The mall has five anchor stores, a food court and Premiere Cinemas 11, although much of the mall’s leasable space is unused. The Baytown Symphony Orchestra, in residence at Lee College, performs several concerts throughout the year for the enjoyment of the public.
The City of Baytown operates the Sterling Municipal Library, which has a collection of 300,000 items. The original Goose Creek Library opened in 1925; the first county library in Texas, it was funded by the private donations of Humble Oil and Refining Company president Ross S. Sterling. The current Sterling library was dedicated in 1963. The library’s space increased to 50,500 square feet after bond programs in 1975 and 1995. In addition Baytown residents are served by the Harris County Public Library system. The The Baytown Police Department, has 155 sworn officers and 52 support personnel as of 2013. The Department provides all-hour Patrol services and has many special units: SWAT, Dive Team, D.A.R.E., Hot Spot, Commercial vehicle enforcement, Investigations, Police Academy, Bomb squad, and others. Fire, rescue, hazardous materials response, and EMS first response are provided by the Baytown Fire Department. Baytown Branch YMCA is located in Baytown.
