By | October 25, 2017

Houston, Texas (October 25, 2017) – The Montrose Management District (MMD) is pleased to announce a neighborhood celebration of the Houston Astros’ wins, American League Title and advancement to the World Series. To honor the team and the city as it unites behind them, MMD will change the Montrose bridge light colors to blue and orange. The lights will remain in the team colors as long as the Astros are in the World Series.

MMD’s new Executive Director Ben Brewer will be on the Dunlavy St. Bridge from 6:00pm to 7:00pm on Thursday, October 26th, to greet residents and hand out Astros-themed snacks and spirit swag. All Houstonians are encouraged to wear their Astros ‘colors’ and come stand on any one of the seven bridges (Montrose to Hazard) over Interstate 69 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm as a show of support for their home team.

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.
