Quincannon Light Display - Homeowner Access Assistance - 12/14 Update

Neighbors:

Thank you for your continued patience with all parties involved in improving homeowner access to the Kemp Forest Section. After extensive discussion with all interested parties, this is a summary of the assets that are in place to assist homeowners to their property.

Per Commander Nguyen of the Northwest Patrol, the Houston Police Department will be on-scene at the Gessner/Kemp Forest intersection beginning at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, 12/18, Saturday, 12/19, Sunday, 12/20, Wednesday, 12/23, Thursday, 12/24 and Friday, 12/25. Two officers will be present and one will be in place to flag traffic in and out of the section. At this time, the intersection should permanently green for northbound and southbound traffic on Gessner and no left turns will be allowed at the intersection. Residents are advised to approach Kemp Forest from the north, drive in the left lane with their hazards on bypassing the traffic for the lights, and turn right at Kemp Forest. The officer at the intersection should recognize local residents by both the flashing hazards and the placards. Non-residents that attempt to cut in line at the intersection will be directed to continue straight and will not be allowed to turn into Kemp Forest. Additionally, we now have an HPD officer that is detailed and dedicated on a nightly basis to the intersection, which will allow for consistency in communication with Houston Police.

I was personally on-scene Sunday night and the additional HPD assets and assistance seem to have improved movement of vehicles through the intersection and I noticed several residents that were able to move into the neighborhood from the left lane of Gessner in order to be escorted in by Precinct 5 officers.

Additional signage will be placed at the intersection by MetroNational requesting non-resident traffic to stay as close to the curb as possible to allow for residents to come around them.

DO NOT wait on Kemp Forest east of Gessner for escort.

Precinct 5 motorcycle officers will be inside the neighborhood, staging at Riata during high traffic times but further in the neighborhood during lower traffic times. These officers should be available every night through the Christmas weekend. Depending on traffic after Christmas, these officers may return until the lights are turned off, which should be January 6, 2021.

Once again, I sincerely apologize for the issues that occurred on Saturday night. The agreement that I made Friday night with the HPD supervisor, MetroNational, and Precinct 5 on-site personnel was not relayed up and down the chain of command.

The logistical arrangement described by this communication will likely be the final arrangement. We will continue to monitor the situation and attempt to address any failures as timely as possible. While I have on numerous occasions proposed and advocated use of the former Pinecrest Golf Course parking lot as a staging area for resident escort, this is likely not going to occur.

This arrangement could not have been possible without the support of the owners of the display, MetroNational, Therese Landa, CM Amy Peck, the Houston Police Department, and Precinct 5. I thank them for their assistance to the Spring Shadows Civic Association.

And I thank you for your continued grace and patience. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!

CitizensNet: Houston Health Department leading antibody testing survey to better understand the spread of COVID-19 in Houston | 09-02-2020

HOUSTON – The Houston Health Department is collaborating with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Rice University, and Baylor College of Medicine to conduct an antibody testing survey to understand how many people in the city were previously infected with the virus that causes COVID-19.

The survey will identify people infected in the past with COVID-19 by the presence of antibodies, proteins the body’s immune system makes to fight infections. Antibody testing does not replace oral or nasal swab viral testing that looks for current infection.

Teams consisting of Houston Health Department staff and Houston Fire Department paramedics will visit randomly selected homes across Houston, asking household members to answer survey questions and provide a blood sample. Phase one is set to take place Sept. 8-24, with phase two starting in the winter of 2021.

“If we knock on your door, I strongly encourage you and your loved ones to participate in this important survey,” said Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner. “The data you provide by participating will help inform strategies to mitigate the effects of COVID-19.”

As COVID-19 cases in Houston soared in July, the health department launched its Better. Together. campaign, encouraging Houstonians to work together to stop the spread of the virus, particularly in hard-hit, vulnerable communities. During the first month of the campaign, Houston’s COVID-19 positivity rate dropped from 20% to 7.8%

“The Houston Health Department’s Better. Together. public health education campaign reminds Houstonians we must work together to overcome the virus and this antibody study is an opportunity to help,” said Mayor Turner.

Only homes approached by the teams are eligible to participate, and participation is voluntary. The teams will be identifiable by their Better. Together. shirts.

Rice University’s Kinder Institute for Urban Research is providing communication and outreach support for the survey.

CANCELLED - - SSCA BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETING FOR MONDAY, MARCH 16, 2020

Howdy Neighbors,

As you are all aware, the City of Houston has issued a Public Health Emergency regarding COVID-19. According to the Houston Health Department, to mitigate the possible spread of the Coronavirus, persons over the age of 60 and persons with underlying health conditions, such as lung disease, heart disease, and diabetes, should avoid public gatherings. Further, the Houston Health Department advises that, if possible, meetings should be cancelled. As such, after discussing this with several members of the SSCA Board of Directors, the Executive Committee, and the Health and Mosquito Committee, the SSCA Board of Directors meeting scheduled for Monday, March 16, 2020 is cancelled.



I am unaware of any COVID-19 cases in our immediate vicinity or neighborhood. This action is strictly out of an extreme abundance of caution to protect the health and well-being of our neighbors, many of whom could be susceptible to ill effects of this virus.



As of right now, the Spring Membership General Meeting remains scheduled for April 14, 2020. The Board, Executive Committee, and Health & Mosquito Committee will continue to monitor all sources of reliable information to take any and all steps necessary regarding the conducting of this meeting in a safe manner. Should circumstances change regarding the General Meeting, we will make all possible efforts to communicate this to you, our neighbors.



In the meantime, I urge you to take all precautions to minimize the spread of this virus. Continue to practice good hygiene and hand-washing procedures. If you are ill, stay home. If you are in one of the above populations susceptible to harsh effects from this disease, limit your exposure to crowds. If you know of neighbors that are in one of these populations that do not have nearby family members or caretakers, consider reaching out to them and asking them if there is anything you can do to assist them in this uncertain time.



Thank you, and please stay safe.

Carl
