    Houston City Council voted unanimously on November 4 to adopt an anti-idling ordinance, which prohibits vehicles with a gross weight rating of more than 14,000 pounds from being allowed to idle for more than five minutes when not in motion. 

    The ordinance excludes military, law enforcement, and METRO vehicles used for public health and safety purposes, as well as those being actively loaded or unloaded. 

    Many thanks to City of Houston Sustainability Director Laura Spanjian, Council Member Dwight Boykins, Museum Park Super Neighborhood, Air Alliance Houston and all who helped made this landmark City Council action a reality.


    It’s a good day for clean air in Houston Texas!

    MPNA Officers recently approved a letter for residents to use when interacting with developers or contractors working in our neighborhood.  Museum Park has been the site of active development recently which has at times inconvenienced those who live here.  The attached letter lists a few simple requests and asks that developers and contractors respect the neighborhood and its residents.


    If you wish to approach a developer or contractor to discuss issues that impact you and the neighborhood, you may print a copy of this letter to give to the company representative. As a courtesy to President Sean Murphy, please email him at president@museumparkna.org to let him know who you have approached.
