PRESS RELEASE

West Houston Association endorses Harris County, Fort Bend County, and Montgomery County bond referendums

Houston, Texas - October 27, 2015

The West Houston Association recently announced its support for the upcoming bond referendums for Harris County, Fort Bend County and Montgomery County. All three elections are set for Tuesday, November 3, 2015.

The Harris County $848 million bond package focuses on improving county roads and bridges. The bond issue includes $700 million is allocated to improve county roads and bridges, $60 million for parks and $64 million for flood control.

The Fort Bend County $98.6 million bond package targets expansions and updates to buildings and facilities throughout the county. The Fort Bend County Justice Center located in Richmond is planned to get $29.2 million. The bond issue also includes funding for construction of a Sheriff's Office substation near Westpark Tollway and FM 1463.

Montgomery County’s $280 million bond issue will fund major roadway improvements in one of the fastest growing counties in Texas.

With a strong focus on public safety and infrastructure, the upcoming bond referendums for all three counties would enhance safety and improve mobility for area residents.

"Since its creation the Association has fully supported our area counties’ efforts to address the infrastructure demands of a rapidly growing metropolitan region," said WHA Chairman Peter Houghton. "The ability to respond to growth demands by expanding the systems that serve our community is vital to maintaining the high quality of living our residents have come to expect. This includes not only transportation infrastructure, but parks, libraries and other services. We encourage the citizens of each county to vote for their respective referendums on November 3."

Monday, June 29th at 8:00 AM- The WHA’s Water Resources Committee is pleased to welcome Mitchel Walker, founder and President of Masuen Consulting LLC.

Masuen Consulting LLC is a twenty year old outdoor water management and sustainability consulting firm. Mr. Walker has thirty years of experience in the urban, golf and agricultural water management worlds. He has a BS in Zoology and a MS in Construction Management.

Mr. Walker will talk about the role of outdoor water management within the broader arena of water conservation. The presentation will discuss how current industry mindsets, practices and values inhibit the demand side from being a co-equal contributor with the supply side in the water conservation story. A two year case study in Houston, Texas will be discussed to demonstrate how relatively simple changes in the way we view and manage water can lead to significant reductions in water use and potentially save billions of dollars in the process.

ACTION CENTER

Take less than 2 minutes to take action and join TAG (Transportation Advocacy Group) in demanding our state leaders address our transportation funding shortfall this session.

Earlier this session, the Senate passed SJR5 that would constitutionally dedicate $2.5 billion a year to transportation with only 2 "no" votes. Weeks later the House passed their version of SJR5 that would, for a time, constitutionally dedicate some $3.5 billion a year to transportation with only 2 "no" votes. Now we are at the final hours of the session and lawmakers are still not in agreement and in danger of no solution.

Tell your state leaders it is time to make a deal on SJR 5 and send the highway funding constitutional amendment to the voters before time runs out.
