2015 Bike to Work Events Promotion/Coordination

By | April 22, 2015

I would like to invite you to join Mayor Parker and friends for Bike to Work Day and to offer the City’s assistance in promoting Bike Month events you may be hosting.

May is National Bike Month and the City of Houston is celebrating. On May 15, 2015, the City is hosting a Bike to Work Day event with a celebratory bike ride. The ride route will start at City Hall from Hermann Square and explore a variety of bicycle facilities on Washington Avenue (shared lane marking), Silver Street (on street bike route), Spring Street (shared-use trail) and the Heights Hike and Bike Trail (MKT Trail, off-street shared use trail). In addition, during the month of May, BikeHouston is planning weekly group rides, one of which will join with the City’s Bike to Work Day ride into downtown. For more information on the City’s Bike to Work Day celebration, please visit www.HoustonBikeways.org.

In the spirit of Bike Month, the City wants to promote activities occurring throughout Houston, including those within your district. During April and May, the City will promote Bike Month events through the Bikeways Program website and other social media outlets. If you would like your Bike Month activities promoted by the City of Houston, please contact Anita Hollmann at anita.hollmann@houstontx.gov with the following information:
• Event Name
• Date of Event

We look forward to celebrating Bike Month and Bike to Work Day with you!

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.
