Houston hopes more homeowners will embrace housing literally in their backyard

Thank you Rice University Kinder Institute for Urban Research, for this thorough look at Accessory Dwelling Units in Houston, and our recent ADU design competition!

There is a lot to like about accessory dwelling units—garage apartments, in-law cottages, granny flats—as a form of housing. Done well, ADUs can help meet the needs for multigenerational families, workers and students, and they offer a gentler form of infill density in urban neighborhoods. They ...

The City of Houston urges the public to be aware of a scam involving fraudulent QR codes being affixed to on-street parking pay stations. These fraudulent QR codes link to a non-City-affiliated website for payment.

In the past three weeks, the fraudulent QR codes have been affixed to on-street parking pay stations in Houston, Austin and San Antonio. ParkHouston urges residents to be aware and educate themselves on proper payment methods.

The City of Houston DOES NOT use QR codes on any on-street parking pay stations, nor does the City accept payments through QR codes. Payment methods include the ParkHouston app (ParkMobile), credit cards at the meter and cash. Please share and educate friends and colleagues on proper payment methods.

ParkHouston is inspecting all our pay stations. Anyone who sees someone tampering with a pay station and is not a badged City of Houston employee should call 9-1-1. If you see a QR code of any kind on a pay station, please report it to [email protected] or call 3-1-1.

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.
