Where Ben’s Been in November

By | November 30, 2017

With the holidays right around the corner, Ben has been busy. Between exploring the neighborhood, working to get the comprehensive plan moving and helping get the holiday lights going at Niko Niko’s, he took the time to send us a few photos to catch up.

The Little Watch Shop 

Ben stopped by The Little Watch Shop near the corner of Shepherd and Vermont. The shop, which both repairs and sells watches, has been in operation at this same location since 1947. The store has changed hands through two different families, and is now owned by Ben Conner, son of the second owners. The Little Watch Shop specializes in repair and after sales services for all watches, whether they are vintage or modern.



On The Way To Work

Here you can see Ben on his way to the office at 5020 Montrose. While sometimes he walks, he often likes to cruise through the neighborhood on his scooter and absorb the sights and sounds. Have you seen him riding through your part of Montrose? Let us know in the comments!






Flip The Switch Party at Niko Niko’s

Ben hosted our Flip the Switch Party at Niko Niko’s alongside owner and Montrose District board member Dimitri Fetokakis (not pictured.) The party featured several hors d’oeuvres from the menu, including stuffed grape leaves and baklava, and beer and wine. Attendees joined Ben and the Montrose District team on the median for a celebratory photo as Niko Niko’s staff turned on the median’s holiday lighting for all to enjoy.

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.
