Houston District C "CIP" Meeting Report (2/16/12)


SHX POA Board representative to the Houston City Council member, Ellen Cohen, reports:

Just a quick note to let you know I attended the District C ‘CIP’ meeting Monday evening.  It was well attended (a couple of hundred people) and presentations were made by Councilmember Cohen, Mayor Parker and a half dozen city officials.  They reviewed the five year capital improvement program and took questions from the audience ranging from very specific or localized concerns, Richmond Ave (METRO’S issue), Fourth Ward paving with bricks to flooding.

Of concern to us were the following comments by the City during their presentations:

•         Morningside is due for completion today and was 93% done as of last Friday
•         Kirby, between Bissonnet and SW Freeway will be resurfaced and restriped this Spring
•         Buffalo Speedway north of Bissonnet will be finished by Spring
•         Greenbriar south of University will be looked at again, but that stretch of Street is not up for reconstruction for another 5 or 6 years

CIP inquiries and requests can be made by calling 311 or through the City’s website
