The State of Montrose Streets and How You Can Help
The poor road quality in Montrose is no secret. It’s difficult to drive a mile without seeing potholes, broken curbs, and other hazards. It’s commonplace to hear locals and people visiting complain, asking what can be done.
As a District, we are concerned with this problem too. Because we are not the City, we do not have direct control over repairing these problem streets. We can only advocate, educate, and encourage residents and business owners to do the same.
Our biggest project is our Comprehensive Mobility Plan which we have submitted to the city. Two of our most-trafficked and most hazardous streets are certainly Richmond and Alabama, and the report highlights that. We bring this study to every open forum on Rebuild Houston and improving the city and make sure they know Montrose needs to be a priority.
We are also working to promote use of the 311 App by Montrose residents and business owners. According to the City, those issues most reported are the ones addressed in the swiftest fashion. If we all report hazards we see, and continue to report them on a regular basis, we increase the chances of the City seeing to our needs.
The Montrose District cares deeply that the infrastructure in our neighborhood gets addressed, and we welcome any and all suggestions on how to get this done even faster.
