Happy New Year District K!
It’s only the 12th day of the year and our calendar is filling up with events, projects, meetings and plans to benefit our district. Last year although our personal contact with residents was limited, your District K Team continued to work on your behalf each day. It is my hope that you are finding our newsletters and updates beneficial each month. If you know any residents that are not receiving our newsletter please ask them to contact our office, as this medium allows us to maximize our reach to constituents.
We are receiving many questions about the COVID 19 vaccine distribution. The City of Houston is one of the first major cities to launch free vaccination sites. We know many Houstonians are eagerly waiting to receive the vaccines and the Houston Health Department employees are working feverishly to administer as many vaccines as possible each day. As we receive more vaccines, more residents will be able to schedule appointments.
You can follow the Houston Health Department on Facebook or Twitter for updates, monitor the registration website, and sign up here for CitizensNet emails (select “Health Department”). The COVID-19 Call Center can be reached at 832-393-4220. Continue to mask up, wash your hands, social distance and check on your neighbors and family members.
We are looking forward to engaging again in person soon. In the meantime stay tuned for our newsletters and updates. As always, do not hesitate to call us or reach out via email. In spite of all that is happening in our country, we still have so much to be thankful for.

Houston Parks Board Notice of Brays Bayou Greenway Detour at Buffalo Speedway

Houston Parks Board would like you to know there will be a trail detour for Brays Bayou Greenway to accommodate a bridge improvement project by Harris County Flood Control District (HCFCD).
On January 4, 2021, HCFCD began making those improvements to remove and replace the Buffalo Speedway vehicular bridge. Construction work is expected to last one year, dependent on weather.
While the bridge is under construction, the Brays Bayou Greenway trail segment will also be removed. Trail users will be detoured to the sidewalk along North Braeswood Boulevard between Kirby Drive and Stella Link Road, and detour signs will be erected. 
Please refer to the map for the detour route and plan your trip accordingly. The Houston Parks Board will update the public web map on the website to show the detour, located here.
HCFCD will maintain the detour routes and detour signage. If you have any questions about these projects and their associated trail detours, please visit www.projectbrays.org.
This portion of Brays Bayou Greenway trail will be replaced upon completion of the construction project.

“Friends of Marian Park” Make Much Needed Improvements to Weight Room

Parks and community centers are critical to our health and quality of life in our city. The “Friends of Marian Park” led by Angelee Rhyne and the park staff, have been working diligently to improve the outdated cardio and weight room at Marian Park Community Center.
The new paint freshened up the space and made it more inviting. The quote painted on the wall will inspire everyone who enters the room.
This week the group secured equipment to replace some of the 20 year old equipment currently in the center. They are also planning beautification projects including mulch and plantings to improve the exterior views of the facility. We appreciate all of the volunteerism and care for our community spaces. We are hoping to have community members utilizing the new and improved space soon. Stay safe!
