Pedestrian Killed: ABC13 Needs Your Input TODAY-11am at Mandell Park

Regarding the Castle Court resident and her dog who were killed at Mandell & Richmond two days ago:

Hi guys! This is Steve Campion with ABC13. I live in Montrose. I’ve seen your posts about what happened this week at Mandell & Richmond. I’m working on a story for Eyewitness News this afternoon. I’ll be out at Mandell Park around 11AM this morning. If you want to share your experiences & concerns, I’d love to do a quick interview with you all. We’re hoping to raise awareness about the problem. Feel free to message me. Any & all are welcomed. Please come out & say hello. This story only works and change can only come if we all voice our concerns as a community.

Richmond Rail Options Meeting–Wednesday, Oct. 18

Lancaster Place Civic Association is having a general meeting next Wednesday, the 18th, the centerpiece of which will be a discussion of high density transportation options along Richmond.  The discussion will be facilitated by representatives from Neartown Association [Kay Warhol] and Richmond Rail.  The goal is to gather input from neighborhoods that lie along or near Richmond Avenue to influence Metro’s master plan for Houston’s long-term transportation needs.  That input will form the basis for a Montrose-focused forum that Neartown plans to hold with Houston Metro next year.  The forum originally planned for next week fell through.

If residents of Mandell Place wish to attend the Lancaster Place Civic Association meeting, they are most certainly welcome.  It will be at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, Pecore Hall, 1805 West Alabama at 6:30 p.m.  Feel free to contact Paul Terry of Lancaster Place Civic Association at if you would like further details.

Public Meeting Nov. 16 on the Lower Westheimer Corridor Study

As part of ReBuild Houston, the City of Houston is seeking input for improvements to the Lower Westheimer Corridor. At this public workshop and open house, residents and stakeholders will receive a summary of the survey results and public comment received thus far, and will be asked to consider various options for the corridor. These options will align with the objective and principles for Lower Westheimer. More information about the workshop will be posted to the project website.

The workshop and open house will be held: Wednesday, November 16th 5:00 – 8:00 PM Metropolitan Multi-Services Center 1475 W Gray St

The improved roadway design for Westheimer Road between Shepherd Drive and Bagby Street and for Elgin Street between Bagby and Main Streets will consider the needs of all Houstonians while meeting the goals of ReBuild Houston to preserve and enhance the overall character of the roadway and improve mobility and safety. Results from the study will be incorporated into the final recommendations and design concept for improving the street. The recommended design will be incorporated into the current capital improvement project along Elgin/Westheimer Road between Main Street and Montrose Boulevard. The Lower Westheimer Corridor Study is co-led by the City’s Public Works & Engineering (PWE) and Planning & Development (P&D) Departments, and advised by a Stakeholder Advisory Committee. Please attend the upcoming workshop on November 16 to share your suggestions for the Lower Westheimer Corridor!
