Register Now to Attend the 2021 State of the District Address

District K Friends,
In March of 2020 I held our very first State of the District event at the Fountain Life Center. The room was filled with District K community leaders, volunteers, organizations and constituents. That event is still one of my absolute favorite events that I have hosted since being elected.
Although we will be virtual this year, it is important to me that I host the 2021 State of the District event to share the successes we have had in our community, even in the midst of Covid-19. I hope you have noticed the visual improvements around the district. I am excited to share what we have accomplished and what we have to look forward to in the coming months. I will also introduce 2 new exciting programs that will encourage more engagement in our community.
The District K Team has worked hard on this event and look forward to sharing the “BIG picture” of what’s happening where we live. I want every single person in our district to participate. Make sure you have Microsoft Teams downloaded on your computer and you register to join. There will be a special virtual drawing for registered participants to win exciting prizes.
You won’t want to miss this event. Make sure you and all of your neighbors are registered. If you have questions about the registration process do not hesitate to reach out to us for assistance at or 832-393-3016.

Proposed Donation Box Ordinance to be Presented Wednesday During QOL Committee

Over the last several months, I have been working with Administration & Regulatory Affairs Department, the City of Houston Legal Department and stakeholders to draft a donation box ordinance for the City of Houston.
Several residents have expressed their frustration with the number of donation boxes in our community. The city of Houston currently does not have a donation box ordinance and many of these boxes have been placed on private property without permission from the property owners and have also become locations for illegal dumping.
While there are some responsible charitable and for-profit organizations that operate these donation bins, I saw a need for policy regulation to prevent unlawful placement and maintenance and to protect our neighborhoods and businesses where these bins are located.
The proposed donation box ordinance will be presented during the Quality of Life Committee meeting Wednesday, March 24, 2021 at 2:00pm. Please see the agenda and joining details via this link:
I look forward to this ordinance coming out of committee and then to our city council agenda for adoption by the city council. If you would like to speak during the committee meeting please sign up or feel free to email your comments to me for inclusion in the discussion.
Special thanks to all of the residents who have expressed their concerns and helped to get several of the nuisance or abandoned donation bins removed. This ordinance will not only be a great help for us in District K, it will benefit the entire city. I’m proud of the amazing policy work we are doing in our community. We are stronger together!



Proposed Residential Development Willow Heights

Please see the site plan for the proposed residential development within the Willow Heights General Plan along Buffalo Speedway. This proposal will go before the planning commission on Thursday, March 25th at their 2:00pm meeting. The applicant is requesting to dedicate one east-west public street through the subject property (Knotty Oaks Trail) instead of two streets which is required by code.
The concept is in the preliminary stages so there is not a unit count or lot size available yet. The developer is planning to to use Knotty Oaks Trail in Brentwood to access both sections of the new development. There are no plans to build out Landmark street and a specific analysis on the impact on flooding will be required during the permitting phase. The developer will be required to abide by the City’s regulations on stormwater once the project advances.
As more information is determined for this proposed development we will share via our newsletter. We are looking forward to quality single family homes being built in District K. If you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out to our office.
