The City requests residents limit lawn watering to the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 a.m. and NO more than two days per week. Residents are asked to abide by the following schedule: Sundays and Thursdays for customers with even-numbered street addresses Saturdays and Wednesdays for customers with odd-numbered street ad
  2. Have anything with a plug, on-off switch or battery chamber that you don't need anymore? It shouldn't go in your regular garbage bin. Bring it to recycle for free! Electronics Recycling Drive Houston residents are encouraged to drop off and recycle any brand of electronic products or computers between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., Saturday, March 26, 2011 at the Houston Reliant Stadium (blue lot), home of the 2011 NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) Men's Final Four, April 2-4, 2011.

  4. From that first link: "Funding, however, has only been identified for half of the project. Proposition 12, approved by voters in 2007, will provide for inbound improvements. The agency is currently looking for sources of funding to cover outbound improvements." wow. that sounds awkward.
  5. I received this announcement from the City's CitizenNet email list This facility is just north of Crosstimbers in the Independence Heights area. Also very near Garden Oaks, Oak Forest, and the rest of the North Loop region. The City of Houston's Solid Waste Management Department (SWMD) cordially invites you to attend A Grand Opening North Main Neighborhood Depository and Recycling Center and a Birthday Bash!

  6. I often ride up the White Oak Bayou bikepath. The other day when I did my usual U-turn on the grass at the north end of the dead-end (after the bridge to nowhere), I noticed a bunch of wooden stakes lined up in the grass possibly showing the planning of a northward extension of the trail. Anyone have more info on this bike path extension? I did see the article in the Chronicle yesterday about the general idea of expanding the city's bike trails but it didn't mention any trail specifically. http://www.chron.com...iz/7114095.html
  7. ok, so we've had our SmartMeter for a couple months now. I recently signed up to view our usage information on-line. But it's a little disappointing that the data that you can view is not at all real-time. You can't view data more recent than 2 days old. Sure, it's great that I can see the 15-minute increments for last week or even the past weekend but I was under the impression that this SmartMeter was going to have more real-time data. Yes, I am capable of going outside and reading the meter, but that's no different than with the old less-smart meters. anyone know of plans to make the power
  8. Thanks so much for posting that link. I don't know that I would have stumbled on it on my own. I am really excited to see the in-progress and near-future bike/hike path projects.
  9. Here's a link to the article in last week's The Leader. I-10 frontage road project
  10. Small branches may be put in bundles as long as each bundle is less than 4 feet in length, 18 inches in diameter, and not weighing more than 50 pounds. PDF of CoH "trash facts"
  11. Texas state participation as of this morning: 48% Harris County: 43% City of Houston: 41% National rate overall: 56% we're behind http://2010.census.gov/2010census/take10map/
  12. You can track state, city and even specific neighborhood participation rates Here Looks like we're behind.
  13. Received our big wheeled green recycle bins yesterday! Can't wait to just load it up and close the lid. We also registered the bin so we earn points of some sort. I guess it surprises me that they need an incentive program to get people to recycle. I think they added the whole Candlelight Estates neighborhood but it's a little curious that the Oak Forest neighborhoods adjacent to us did not receive the new bins. Our newspapers and junk mail would often blow out of the crates and we'd have a big pick-up session of all the paper blown around the neighborhood. hurray for an enclosed receptacle.
