Houston, Texas (July 24, 2017) – The Montrose Management District (MMD) announced today that it is accepting applications from charities and nonprofit organizations to highlight events that impact the community using the new programmable LED lights on the Montrose bridges and the District’s ID markers. The District has already announced that it will change the Montrose bridge and ID marker colors in observance of holidays. Apart from those dates, the district will consider applications from nonprofit organizations for changing the colors.

“We are pleased to demonstrate our support of nonprofit causes, as well as to promote awareness of various initiatives that impact our diverse community,” said Claude Wynn, MMD Chairman of the Board. “The bridges are a significant landmark in Houston, and we look forward to giving nonprofits the ability to use the lights in their promotions and awareness-building efforts.”

Requests will be taken on a first come, first serve basis and are subject to approval by the Montrose Management District’s board of directors.
