Restriping of Pedestrian Crossing at Bingle Road and Merlin Drive Scheduled for December 9

On Wednesday, December 9, 2020 beginning at approximately 9:00 am, the pedestrian crossing at Bingle Road and Merlin Drive will be restriped. This will take the contractor the majority of the day and alternating lanes of traffic on Bingle Road will be temporarily blocked off where work is being performed; however, the contractor does not anticipate needing to block all lanes of traffic at the same time. The contractor will have traffic control, vehicles with arrow boards, and traffic cones/signs to redirect traffic out of the lanes where work is being performed. It is expected that the contractor will finish the project by the end of the day. Please keep this work in mind as you plan your day.

If you have any questions, please contact Pat Riley, Director of Public Works, at (713) 465-8308 or by email to [email protected].

Dear Spring Valley Village Resident,

CenterPoint Energy has been performing tree trimming around CenterPoint’s electrical lines and poles as well as other electrical facilities throughout the Spring Oaks East and West Subdivisions and the Brighton Place Subdivision to improve the reliability of the electrical network. This project is in response to recent power outage issues residents have experienced in this area of the City.

The next part of this project is the removal and replacement of utility poles. In an effort to reduce the length of power outages associated with the pole replacements, CenterPoint has decided to schedule two large outage days instead of spreading it out over several days.

• The first scheduled outage day will be Tuesday, December 1, 2020 from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm. In the event of rain, the work will be moved to Wednesday, December 2, 2020 from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm. The area affected will be the south sides of Merlin Drive and Cedarbrake Drive from Voss Road to Krist Drive.

• The second outage day will be Tuesday, December 8, 2020 from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm. In the event of rain, the work will be moved to Wednesday, December 9, 2020 from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm. The area affected will be the north side of Merlin Drive from Bingle Road to Leafy Lane/Krist Drive.

CenterPoint’s contractor, North Houston Pole, will have multiple crews in the area on each of the scheduled outage days. The day before each scheduled outage, North Houston Pole will deliver material and equipment needed for the pole replacement next to the poles within the utility easement in order to improve the efficiency with which the replacement may be completed and consequently reduce the length of the power outage.

It is important to know that most of these utility poles are located within utility easements that are in the backyards of our residents. CenterPoint has already begun notification to residents in the affected areas. A map reflecting the limits of full project may be found at this link: https://www.springvalleytx.com/ImageRepository/Document?documentId=1863

If you have questions or concerns about this CenterPoint project, please contact Pat Riley, Director of Public Works, by email to [email protected].

Thank you to all who participated in the 4th Annual Memorial Villages Recycling Event last Saturday, October 24, 2020, at Hedwig Village City Hall. It was another successful event! Residents from all six Villages brought items to donate, shred, and/or dispose of. Pioneer Services collected approximately 4.4 tons of paper for shredding. The Hedwig Village Police Department collected 172 pounds of medications for proper disposal. Memorial Assistance Ministries (MAM) collected so many clothing and furniture donations that their truck was filled to capacity. For the first time this year, in addition to the recycling opportunities, Trees for Houston handed out 125 trees.

Many thanks to the City of Hedwig Village for hosting the Event, and thanks again for your contributions and support. We could not have done it without you!

The City of Spring Valley Village has learned that Center Point Energy will be performing tree trimming and pole replacements throughout the Brighton Place Subdivision to improve the reliability of the electrical network. This project is in response to recent power outage issues residents have experienced in this area of the City.

While the tree trimming work was expected to begin this week of October 26, 2020, we understand that some of this work began this past weekend and early on Saturday morning. The City has advised CenterPoint Energy of the noise restrictions within the City and that this work must comply with the City’s regulations. The tree trimming work is expected to be completed near the end of December. A map reflecting the limits of project may be found at this link: https://www.springvalleytx.com/ImageRepository/Document?documentId=1863

CenterPoint’s contractor, North Houston Pole, will be handling the work, and the scope of work will be tree trimming around CenterPoint’s electrical lines and poles as well as other electrical facilities. It is important to know that most of these electrical facilities are located within utility easements that are in the backyards of our residents. CenterPoint should notify you of work to be performed in a backyard easement area.

Scheduled Street Sweeping of Major Thoroughfares and Collector Streets to Occur October 29-30, 2020

The City of Spring Valley Village has contracted with One Source Cleaning Solutions to sweep the major thoroughfares and collector streets in the City on a quarterly basis.

Dear SV - I received the notice that there would be no garbage collection today, July 3 - but the WCA garbage truck just made the rounds on my Spring Valley street!!! 🤨
My niece in Austin told me her neighborhood was placing teddy bears in their windows so that all the kids walking with their parents can make a game of it - count the teddy bears! I put one in my front window. Hope others do the same!
This person bothering your staff is named Patrick Bernard Roth and the female party with him is named Selena Carol.
Hope you have heard, but if not the Spring Branch Senior High School Alumni Foundation is holding a community event in conjunction with our "All Class Reunion" on October 19th. A fun day for all with a "Blast from the Past" Car show, Tour of the Spring Branch High School and Spring Branch Community Museum, Kid Bouncy Activities, Food Trucks, Silent Auction and much more. The event will start at 10 and end at 2. The museum is truly a Blast from the Past. If you attending high school in the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's, then you will truly enjoy your stroll down memory lane. The colors might be blue and white, but this museum depicts what high school life was like during these decades. There is also a section on the History of the Spring Branch Community.
