Don’t forget to show up tomorrow !

The 2014 District C Capital Improvements Meeting is tomorrow at the West Gray Multi-Service Center. We really need to rally the troops and get as many people there as possible. Please spread the word… for the LOVE OF MONTROSE.

Click here to see what they are proposing to fix at this time.

It’s not realistic to get your *favorite* pothole fixed, or even a well-deserving side street. What we need to convey is that we are there on behalf of the Montrose arteries – Westheimer, Alabama, etc. Think of all the hours you spend on these streets; please encourage your neighbors and friends to take an hour or two from their busy schedules and show up!

From Kelly DeHay:

Our streets affect us all. Our taxes all went up 10 per cent last year and I am prepared for a 5 to 10 per cent increase this year. We need to fight for Montrose. I can’t tell you how often people comment on our streets when I am out showing property.

 

Wednesday, March 5, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
District C – CM Ellen Cohen

Metropolitan Multi-Service Center (Gym), 1475 W. Gray

Call to Action-Fix our Streets! March 5th

Voice your Concern!

Call-to-Action

It’s time for Mandell Place residents to unite and and make their voices heard over the conditions of our neighborhood and streets.  Ellen Cohen, along with the Public Works & Engineering Department, will present upcoming infrastructure projects that will affect where we live. Click here to see what they are proposing to fix at this time.

 

Where: West Gray Metropolitan Multi-Service Center, 1475 W Gray St.

When: 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 5

Time will be set aside at this meeting to allow for input by owners in our neighborhood.  A portion of the CIP meeting will be devoted to suggestions.  At this time, the only projects they have up for consideration run along Hawthorne street and even that is not final.  If enough of us come and express our concerns, maybe we can help District C understand our situation.  Plan to go. Tell your neighbors. Come and be heard!

Mulberry st closing Feb 17

street closedAttention Mandell Place Neighbors! The City of Houston will begin a Local Drainage Project on Monday, February 17th . The project affects Mulberry Street from Kipling to Marshall. It should take the Contractor about two weeks to complete. It entails the cleaning of the 24-inch storm sewer on Mulberry Street from Kipling Street to Marshall Street. It also involves the milling and replacement of the existing asphalt from just south of Harold Street up to and including the intersection of Kipling and Mulberry Street. This project will not entail any construction at or near Hawthorne. As far as parking, it will be impacted along Mulberry from Harold to Kipling while the Contractor mills the existing asphalt and lays new asphalt.

If you have any questions or concerns about this project, please contact us at mandellplace@gmail.com and we will relay your question to the City. Thanks!
