Input Sought By Aug. 31 on Future Westheimer Park

By | August 29, 2016

The Houston Parks and Recreation Department is seeking feedback by no later than August 31st on community priorities for a future park at 424 Westheimer in District C’s Montrose area.

Mayor Pro Tem Cohen successfully advocated for the purchase of land for this park in 2014 and provided funding for the park’s design costs through District C’s Council District Service Fund. During a public meeting about the park that she hosted last week, ideas centered on the benefits and costs of incorporating spaces such as a tree-lined “promenade” area and a dog run.

    Perfect spot for a park. Much needed in that area.

    What a waste of taxpayer money to build a park on a major thoroughfare where parking is limited to begin with.

    At a time when the city is closing down neighborhood swimming pools, Ellen Cohen squanders money away on a park that does not have that much residential impact.

    Ellen Cohen cant even get a glass recycling center in the Montrose area that other neighborhoods enjoy. Just a dumpster. She spends too much time trying to get re-elected when some of us hoped this was her last wasted term.
