  1. Update. "Affordable housing developer considers scaling back proposed Heights project": https://www.chron.com/business/real-estate/article/Affordable-housing-project-proposed-in-the-Heights-13611746.php#photo-16923093

  3. Last night, from approximately 12:45 a.m. until 1:30 a.m., there was a helicopter circling over the Heights. Does anyone know why?
  4. I haven't read the claims in the Petition yet, but Judge Kirkland is pro-historic preservation. Check out the judge's bio: http://www.justex.net/courts/civil/CourtSection.aspx?crt=17&sid=281
  5. My friend's house has been burglarized several times in the past few months, and they recently captured video of the (alleged) burglars in action. Check out the story/video below from KHOU Channel 11 about these burglaries in the Woodland Heights, and please pass it along in the hopes that someone recognizes these people so the police can catch them. Thanks. http://www.khou.com/...-130735488.html
  6. Late last night/early this morning I heard a helicopter, maybe more than one, circling overhead for an hour or more. It was very loud and I found it odd considering the time of night (probably around 4:00 a.m.). Did anyone else hear this, and does anyone know what they were doing? I couldn't find any news stories this morning which related to a helicopter search. On the same topic, it seems like there is some sort of helicopter flight path that goes directly over the Heights, because I seem to see and hear them a lot flying the same routes.
  7. Is there an organized opposition group to the proposed amendment? A website maybe? I have been out of the loop and was not able to attend any of the meetings, but would like more information regarding how to oppose the proposed new historic district/amendment. Thanks.
  8. Has anyone had a radiant barrier installed? If so, who did you use and would you recommend them? Also, did you use the spray or foil type, and is there a ballpark price for this type of service? Thanks.
  9. I have several very large trees which need to be trimmed. Has anyone used a good, and preferably reasonably priced, tree trimming service in the Heights? Thanks in advance for any input.
  10. We went to Pie-in-the-Sky for breakfast the week before last. My bottom line review is that the food was "OK," but priced appropriately for breakfast (unlike most other places, especially in the Heights), the service was below adequate, and the wait for food was poor. During our visit the place was pretty crowded, but we were seated immediately. We were not told what table number we were seated at, nor were we told that we were supposed to fill out our order on a writing pad with our table's number on it which was a basket on our table (plus, we didn't have a pen anyway). Our simple order (2
  11. Do you know who the contractor/designer doing their renovation work is? I'm in the very early stages of planning for some renovation work and am looking for the names of some quality design and renovation firms, especially with experience in the Heights. Thanks.
  12. Other than waiting for the monthly heavy trash pick up day, is there any place in or near the Heights where you can legally dump tree trimmings, branches, lawn waste, etc.? Thanks in advance for any info.
  13. Does anyone have more specifics on how to obtain a permit to cover the culvert and build a parking space? Is the additional parking space which is built over a culvert private, or can anyone park there? Thanks in advance for any info.
  14. Here's a good article and video about another one of her town hall meetings: http://lonestartimes.com Apparently there was a fake doctor who supports the new health care reform bill planted in the front row.
  15. The sign says "Yummy Fatz Desserts"
