  1. I think Avondale Civic is hosting another presentation at their May 4 business meeting upstairs at The Womens home 7 pm
  2. planning/transportation/CMP/lowerWestheimer/
  3. I went to the presentation with perhaps 40 or so stakeholders. Nice presentation that indeed did show significant changes for the the Westheimer blocks from Montrose to Bagby. I had thought 4 lanes would be turned into 3 lanes but really it's only 2 lanes with an occasional left hand turn lane and "cut outs" for the metro buses to leave main lane when picking up riders. It seems that there are less bus stops and .... actual parking spaces on Westheimer itself.
  4. Guess those interested have a chance to catch up--- open meeting April 20 multi-service center on Gray
  5. It seems that you always hear " on the spectrum" when talking about autism. With 1-68 children being diagnosed within that spectrum, it's not unlikely that each of us encounter ( unknowingly or not) someone with autism. i am glad there is a campaign. To raise awareness.
  6. Houston was awarded an urban outdoor grant of $1 million for its Avondale Promenade Park project. Proposed development for the park include a community plaza, pedestrian promenade, pavilion, landscaping with irrigation, interpretive signs, playground, picnic tables, benches, porch swings, dog park.........
  7. $400,000. For 13 marquees
  8. I attended the Central One Division PIP last Tuesday (always first Tuesday each month 1600 State Street 7pm) Capt Bennett announced that There were more BMV's in Montrose during February than anywhere else in HOuston. The Stats are available on line-- and attendees at meeting are given a booklet that lists: Date, Type of Crime and location.
  9. Yes Lower Westheimer has its parking issues...... this may be why COH set up a special Parking Designated area( lead by MMD) that includes most of Lower Westheimer-- examination of the issue continues.........
  10. Everything you ever wanted to know about MMD and lighting up the 59 bridges plus a myriad of other topics MMD will be available to anwser
  11. Saw a presentation from COH at Neartown meeting-- A Community meeting for citizen input was held last week-- another meeting is proposed for February. The "rebuilding" of corridor from Main street to Montrose is funded-- the remainder is pending. Looks like 3 lanes of traffic instead of 4 lanes on Lower Westheimer is a go! You can check out the website
