Partial Closure - Terry Hershey Park - Northside Kirkwood to B8

posted Dec 15, 2016, 3:07 PM by Memorial Super Neighborhood   [ updated Mar 22, 2017, 2:50 PM ]

From Harris Country Flood Control District:

Unfortunately, active construction sites within open park space have led to dangerous situations involving pedestrians and bike riders on a daily basis.  To minimize these risks moving forward, Terry Hershey Park will be partially closed for the duration of HCFCD’s construction project.

Closure in the repair area is effective immediately and will last until bank stabilization repairs are complete. Harris County Constables will be patrolling the closed area and issuing citations to trespassers.

Please refer to the attached information sheet for details regarding this closure, and share with your distribution list.  If there are questions not addressed by the information sheet, please feel free to contact us directly at 713-684-4040 or ProjectCommunications@hcfcd.org

Nottingham Task Force Plan

posted Dec 15, 2016, 8:55 AM by Memorial Super Neighborhood

In relation to the Kirwood drainage and rebuild plan:

The Nottingham Task Force has met with City of Houston experts who recommend that we continue to gather support for the Nottingham Task Force Plan. This includes initiating a motion at the December Meeting to ask the Memorial Super Neighborhood 16 members to vote in support of the Nottingham community's plan concerning Kirkwood. The experts shared that PWE will take this vote of support as evidence of more support than the previous vote by MSN 16. We ask that this request be added to the December agenda. We have also been advised that this motion should be approved before the end of the year. The community plans a letter writing campaign to the Mayor but we must have followed all of the pre-steps so that our request will be taken seriously.

This motion is requested by David Mandery (Nottingham Civic Association) and Fran Marintsch (Nottingham IV HOA).

Buffalo Bayou Emergency Repair

posted Aug 22, 2016, 3:14 PM by Memorial Super Neighborhood

Overview

The banks of Buffalo Bayou in Terry Hershey Park in west Houston experienced severe erosion during the major floods of 2016, followed by a 3-month release of stormwater from the Addicks and Barker reservoirs. There are now over a dozen locations on the north side of Buffalo Bayou that are public safety hazards. The sites are spread out from Dairy Ashford Road to downstream of Wilcrest Road.

The planned emergency repair project, within Harris County Flood Control District right-of-way, is a cooperative effort between the Harris County Flood Control District (HCFCD), the Harris County Engineering Department (HCED), and Harris County Precinct 3. HCFCD and HCED partnered on the design. HCFCD will reconstruct and stabilize the channel banks,and Harris County Precinct 3 will reconstruct and relocate park improvements, including trails.
