November 5, 2020 - November 7th could very well mark the 20th anniversary of daily deaths occurring on Texas roadways. That means at least one fatality, once a day, for twenty consecutive years.

In an effort to "End the Streak" Mayor Sylvester Turner and Texas Transportation Commissioner Laura Ryan will offer an update on how both Houston and the state of Texas are addressing the problem.

Mayor Turner will also discuss Houston's Vision Zero roadway safety initiative.

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.

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.
