Shell Property Acquisition
On Thursday October 31st, District K community members joined Mayor Sylvester Turner as he signed the purchase agreement for the 28 acre Shell Research Center on Gasmer, adjacent to the Willow Waterhole Greenway.
This purchase will allow significantly more detention in the northern region of the district to help prevent residents from repeatedly flooding, specifically in the Westbury area. Mayor Turner and I are committed to mitigating flooding and this city project is a step in the right direction. This was a true community collaboration and I am so proud of the work we did to make this happen. State Rep Shawn Thierry said it best, “This is good government at work.”
Grateful Gathering 2019
We have so much to be grateful for. The District K staff and I can’t wait to celebrate this season of thanksgiving with the seniors in our community. It’s going to be an afternoon of line dancing, great food and lots of fun. Don’t forget to rsvp and let us know you are coming. See you there!
Almeda Road at Knight Rd. Waterline Break Emergency Repair
The weekend of November 2nd, my office and the City of Houston Public Works Department responded to a catastrophic, 7’ longitudinal split of an iron pipe water line.
After receiving multiple calls, the District K team and I went out to survey the repairs, deliver bottled water, and assist businesses and residents with plumbing needs. The District K team looks forward to continuing to engage with neighbors in the various communities along Almeda and Knight Rd.
Fort Bend Houston Complete Community Kick Off

We encourage everyone to use the below link to sign-up to receive the Fort Bend Complete Community newsletter. Don’t miss out on the opportunities to provide feedback and guide the progress of this initiative.
