Construction Update

President Steven Paletz and Board Member Jeff Peters met with the newly appointed Flood Czar, Stephen Costello, to walk the neighborhood and go over the drainage and flooding issues that effect the neighborhood. They requested prompt action on the ReBuild Houston project that has stalled after the contractor was terminated. The city has patched up some of the more dangerous areas and is negotiating with the bonding company to determine the best path forward for completing the project. Stay tuned for more information on this project.

 

Proposed Aggressive Panhandling Zone

Council Member Green is working with the Civic Club Board and residents to find a solution to the aggressive panhandling problem at Post Oak and West Belfort. Surveillance cameras will be installed at Meyer Park and the Chase Bank to keep an eye on the aggressive panhandling situation. Council Member Green's office also provided several documents that will help our neighborhood work with surrounding neighborhoods and businesses to create a zone that will help reduce the aggressive panhandling in our neighborhood. This zone will require a petition in order for the zone to be created. The following documents were presented:

  1. A map of the proposed zone
  2. The language of the current City Ordinance governing the creation of the zone (see below)
  3. A proposed amendment to the existing City Ordinance regarding aggressive panhandling (see below)
  4. A previous, successful petition that created the East Downtown Zone

Please review these documents and contact the President of the Civic Club if you are interested in getting involved in reducing the aggressive panhandling in our neighborhood.

 

Recycling to Continue but Glass no Longer Accepted

The City of Houston and Waste Management have reached tentative agreement on a new 2-year contract that will allow the city to continue offering recycling services without any disruption. The only change in service that Houstonians will notice is the elimination of glass from the list of items that are acceptable for placement in the green curbside single-stream recycling bins.  Glass, currently has no value on the commodities market, breaks down during collection and transportation and is unduly destructive to the processing equipment.

Residents will still have the option of dropping off glass for recycling at the City's neighborhood depositories.
