The City of Houston Health Department has ordered a cleaning of the area under US 59 between Caroline and Almeda on August 10. According to the post, the clean-up aims to abate conditions that contribute to disease, including human waste, mosquitoes, flies, and trash.
Thanks goes to everyone: city officials, including the Mayor and the Office for Homeless Initiatives; Midtown Management District, who will spearhead the effort; HPD and the Homeless Outreach Team; the Coalition for the Homeless; and most importantly the residents of Museum Park, who continue to lobby for measures to address the untenable conditions of the encampment and the accompanying issues within the neighborhood.
MPNA and MPSN have worked to give a unified voice to our common concerns before city council, in countless meetings, emails, and phone conversations, and by hosting public meetings with city officials, and will continue to do so.
Thanks to all for your efforts to make Museum Park a healthy neighborhood.
