Exploring the Legacy of Redlining in Houston

A data-driven dive into a complex history of injustice. How can we begin to right these wrongs? This article lists supporting the work of #CompleteCommunitiesHOU as part of the solution.

In the Houston area, there are neighborhoods fewer than 15 miles apart in which the average life expectancy differs by 21 years and future income differs by $50,000 for low-income children. The disparities may exist in the present, but their roots run deep through our region’s history.

WE OPPOSE Variance application –# 2020-0663, Whitney Place West partial replat no 1. We request that the City of Houston DENY the application. Any development in our quiet, peaceful, close-knit community will add to the flooding caused by the current town home development. Streets would be torn up during construction and many other negative issues. Constructing a new street in our closed neighborhood does NOT ADD anything positive. Did I mention the street currently floods when it rains due to the current construction of the Park at Yale town homes? See images.
Houston Planning & Development Department, PLEASE update Current Agenda for this Thursday's Planning Commission meeting. PDF will not download. Site can't be reached error. By the way ...WE OPPOSE Variance application –# 2020-0663, Whitney Place West partial replat no 1. #PreservePecandaleCourt
Houston Planning & Development Department, the Pecandale Court Civic Club SEEKS indefinite deferment for Item 95 on the tomorrow’s Agenda, Variance Application # 2020-0663, Whitney Place West partial replat no 1, #PreservePecandalecourt
I Object/Oppose Variance Application # 2020-0663, Item 95, RE: Whitney Place West partial replat no 1. This application did not take all of the repercussions into view of what would happen with the existing neighborhood it would be connecting with. Pecandale Court is that neighborhood, the same neighborhood I grew up in, the same neighborhood that still has residents living there from when I grew up there. The tranquility, safety, and extra traffic ramifications/concerns have not been adequately identified or researched by the variance applicant...let alone the flooding impact on this proposed project.
