Montrose residents have fond memories of their beloved Fiesta – cheap produce, specialty meats and aisles of vino. But its days were numbered when the new flagship H-E-B set up shop across the street last November.  As reported by CultureMap last month, Fiesta closed its doors for the last time yesterday.

Finger Companies announced in January that it had bought the shopping center and intended to build a Mediterranean Mid-rise.

District provided services such as safety patrols by off-duty HPD officers, graffiti abatement, trash pick-up, maintenance of esplanades, among other services outlined in the Districts’ Assessment Plan, that are supplemental to services provided by the City of Houston, had been reduced in Mid-November and ceased completely as of December 11. The District had to cease the services due to unpaid assessments from some of the commercial property owners within the District. Delinquent assessments for 2016 and prior years are being collected for services that were delivered in 2017. The current lawsuit status does not affect the collection of delinquent assessments due for 2016 and prior years for services rendered for calendar year 2017. Please direct questions regarding the cessation of services to Executive Director, Ben Brewer at BBrewer@MontroseDistrict.org. We are committed to helping our neighborhood remain the safe, vibrant and attractive place to live and do business and would like to hear from you on how we can continue to work together in this effort.
