  1. Has anyone driven this yet? I would imagine this will greatly improve the lives of people in the area between 59 and 288. This seemed to built fairly quickly. How does it tie into the beltway? Is there a ramp? Just wondering.
  2. How do they plan to squeeze a freeway into the right away on South Post Oak (between Bellfort and Willowbend Blvd)??? I've been trying to find some schematics because I'm curious as to how they will do it without tearing down every business along that route.
  3. Fort Bend County, an area of over 800,000 residents, currently has absolutely abysmal public transportation. They have no connections to METRO transit centers or park and rides such as at Grand Parkway, Mission Bend, West Bellfort or Missouri City, no fixed route local service in the Sugar Land/Missouri City/Stafford area, nor in the rest of the county besides three unintelligibly convoluted, unusably infrequent "Fixed Deviation" routes in the Richmond/Rosenberg that only run on weekdays. The Park and Ride service leaves anything to be desired, with poor frequency, no midday or later evening s
  4. https://communityimpact.com/houston/katy/city-county/2018/06/21/fort-bend-county-official-etj-legislation-may-affect-up-to-300000-residents/ Also: https://communityimpact.com/houston/katy/city-county/2018/08/23/katy-state-representative-etj-bill-could-affect-1-8-million-houston-residents/ It's about time. Unincorporated Houston is very weird. I grew up in unincorporated Harris County and didn't realize how different it was until I moved to different places (DFW and now LA). There are definitely some things missing in the Housto
  5. I live in Fort Bend County and I am just amazed at how the traffic conjestion has exploded since I moved there in 2008. The Southwest Freeway is a joke, Highway 90 is getting crazy, Westpark & Highway 6 South (come on, are u serious) ! Was thinking maybe they could consider connecting the useless Fort Bend Tollway to South Post Oak and have that freeway built out from the connection at the West Loop south of Bellaire, all the way out to where the Grand Parkway is going to be south of Rosenberg. That would provide some relief for us out in Fort Bend (second largest county in the region,
  6. Here are some links to a very interesting house that started it's life in 1916 in downtown Houston and was moved south to the Brazos river area in the 30s. http://lifeonthebrazosriver.com/ScanlanHouse.htm https://mylifebehindbars.net/2017/02/02/the-scanlan-mansion/ Here some lucky kids got to explore it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hc4O32eiT5Q Coordinates are approximately 29° 28'44.35"N 95° 28'58.64" The story doesn't have a happy ending. This lovely historic home was recently demolished to make room for more Sienna Pl
  7. Traffic crashes linked to distracted driving increased 3 percent statewide from 2015 to 2016, totaling 108,962 crashes last year, according to a March 30 statement from the Texas Department of Transportation. To spread awareness of the growing trend, TxDOT hosts its “Talk, Text, Crash” public safety campaign in April. According to TxDOT data, the number of distracted driving crashes in Harris County increased 45.6 percent between 2010 and 2015, growing from 9,786 incidents to 14,250 incidents. The post Distracted driving crashes have increased in Harris, Montgomery and Fort Bend counties sinc
  8. Mike McGuff of mikemcguff.com reported that after 1 year and a 1/2, TV reporter Amanda Perez is leaving KPRC-TV NBC 2 Houston for the world of education. "I'll soon be working for Fort Bend ISD as the district's media relations coordinator," Perez told mikemcguff.com. "It's hard to say goodbye to all the amazing folks at Local 2, but I'm ready for a new challenge." http://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2014/09/amanda-perez-leaves-kprc-2-for-fort-bend-isd.html?m=1 Reaction from anyone on Perez leaving the Houston NBC affiliate?
  9. From chron.com Gallery Furniture, well known for its flagship site on the North Freeway, is planning to build a bigger store in Richmond. Groundbreaking on the property, next to the Santikos Palladium Theatres on the Grand Parkway, will take place sometime between now and the end of April, owner Jim "Mattress Mack" McIngvale said. http://www.chron.com/neighborhood/fortbend/business/article/Mattress-Mack-plans-over-the-top-Fort-Bend-5354158.php?cmpid=hpts#photo-6081614
  10. I received a newsletter in the mail today from Fort Bend County Commissioner's office regarding the Nov 5th vote for the Mobility Bond Proposition. Included is a map with various road projects and I noticed a "Future Sam's Club" shown at Bellaire and Grand Pkwy on the east side of the intersection. Does anyone have additional info on this Sam's Club and how realistic it is? I'll try to scan and post my map tomorrow
  11. Where do you all see the future of Fort Bend County ? Our population has reach 627,293 and is growing more and more everyday with no signs of stopping. I live in Sugar Land and I can definitely see the growth. If we were a city we would be the 7th largest city in Texas, just after El Paso ! I'm starting to wonder if Fort Bend is going to have to start thinking like a big city rather than a suburban area. For example, with transportation, Hwy 59 (I-69) is always backed-up and needs relief. Highway 6 is a nightmare, Highway 90 is starting to get crazy. Thankfully the Grand Parkway is bein
  12. Per Bisnow, this memorial was recently dedicated in Memorial Park in Sugar Land. Haven't heard of using tilt-wall for this sort of construction before. More on the design and planning can be found here.
  13. Four mixed-use master-planned communities are coming to Fort Bend, reported by Bisnow. http://www.bisnow.com/commercial-real-estate/houston/is-downtown-a-gateway-market/
  14. Just wanted to ask people around Fort Bend County if you have ever rode on the Fort Bend Transit buses and what was your experience. Seems to me they are becoming more and more popular. There are already plans to put permanent park and ride facilities in Missouri City and Rosenberg. I think it's cool to have public transportation in Fort Bend. It's the second largest pop county in the area. The 2010 census for the county was at 585,375 and it's growing more every year, which is basically the size of Portland, Ore. We have to have alternative ways of getting around the area. The traffic,
  15. Anyone know what is going to be built on the Southeast corner of I-10 and Katy Ft. Bend Road? This property has been cleared a few times over the past couple of years but looks like some work is finally to really be done there.
  16. I am of the impression 1/2 of the homemade signs in all of Fort Bend County are located on the corner of I-10 and the Grand Parkway. It has quickly become quite the eyesore. The classics include advertising poop removal on full sheets of plywood. I believe we need stricter code enforcement and soon.
  17. Got my new tax appraisal today.......while the rest of the country's home values are dropping, mine went up. 5 year old house up in value by $6,000. I live in Parkway Lakes. I guess I shouldn't complain as I see only 1 or 2 empty houses in the neighborhood..........
  18. Does anyone have any idea about plans for the land cleared at the corner of Katy Fort Bend Rd and Roesner (South of Katy Fort Bend and West of Roesner)? The Texas Land & Dev. Co. sale sign is still posted, but trees and paths have been cleared. I hope it is not another apartment project.
  19. Ft Bend county launched a public information website this year.. http://www.fortbendcountynews.info/go/site/1529/ Most interesting link on the site is to the mobility status report.. http://www.fortbendmobility.com/ the program summary milestone schedule shows scheduled start and completion dates for each project....
  20. does anyone seemed concerned that Fort Bend ISD has allowed its dumb policy of smaller schools lead to overbuilding of schools and the potential HISD model (too many schools with no enrollment)? The east end of the district says it all as they let Willowridge, the only school in the district who had a national name, go to shambles as they dropped a $22 million dollar palace named Thurgood Marshall eight miles away that has now dropped in enrollment? I saw a band video from 2 different eras and its sad how the nation's premiere marching band has been reduced to a thread of itself due to blaten
  21. Does anyone have experience with the golf/country clubs in the area? Our neighborhood is associated with Meadow Brook Farms Golf Club, but while we love the course we wished it had more non-golf facilities and services. We have friends that like Pecan Grove (Sugar Land area) but wanted to get other opinions...
