Ensuring that the area is recognized for its cleanliness, well-landscaped streets and roadways and for its overall appearance is an important part of the District’s work, and our field services manager, Asdrubal “Dru” Gutierrez, has been busy this summer doing just that.
Buckboard Park Courtyard Restoration
This 5-acre neighborhood park showed signs of weathering in the form of mold and some damaged benches.
Restoration included power washing the courtyard, two main entrances, the piñata pavilion, and replacement of three benches.
After a constituent reported the illegal dumping of furniture on East Hardy Road, Dru coordinated with BrightView, the District’s landscaping service provider, to abate the issue. Also, crews picked up trash along the corridor, as well as clearing another illegal dumping area.
Pavers & Pavement at Greenspoint Drive and Northpoint
In February, a City of Houston water line repair left the street pavement and pavers damaged and unsightly. A request for repair was submitted using the City’s 311 system, and in July, crews worked for two weeks to restore both pavement and pavers. The original upgrades to the intersection were part of a TIRZ 11 project.
Wussow Park Restoration & Upgrades
The Wussow Park playground equipment needed some attention. Damaged areas were repaired, and replacement parts were installed. Lighting improvements are also in progress, including the addition of more lighting to the parking lot.
