Big things are happening in the Montrose District! We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to make Montrose an even better neighborhood to live and work in, and we wanted to let you know more about two of our projects.

First of all, the bike racks are in! It’s been a long process to get them from idea to real, physical objects, but we think you will agree that they were worth the wait. We will be installing them at local businesses soon. Invites to the groundbreaking will be forthcoming, and we hope you’ll join us to kick off this new bike-friendly initiative in Montrose.




Secondly, we held a kickoff party for our Cultural District Designation application. The District is working on an application with the Texas Commission on the Arts to get this designation. We can use the designation to apply for grants that can be used to make our already vibrant arts and creative community even better. Our kickoff party was a huge success, and featured musicians like Joe Sample and artists Alton Cooper. Check out the pics below, let us know if you have any ideas for how we can use this potential designation to make Montrose even artsier, and attend our steering committee meeting on April 14. Contact Marie Cortes at for details.
