Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner is scheduled to appear at an upcoming Kingwood Town Hall Meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 9, to discuss updates related to Hurricane Harvey.

The meeting will be held at the Kingwood Community Center from 6:30-8 p.m.

Several area officials will join Turner at the town hall to provide updates on various projects affecting the Lake Houston Area, including:

Houston’s efforts to rebuild after Harvey — Stephen Costello, Houston chief residency officer; Marvin Odum, chief recovery officer

Harris County Flood Control Bond — Matt Zeve, Harris County Flood Control

Northpark Drive expansion project and Kingwood intersection improvements — Stan Sarman, chairman of the Lake Houston Redevelopment Authority, a subsidiary of the Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone 10

Lake Houston Debris Removal project progress — Houston Solid Waste Team representative

Next legislative session — State Rep. Dan Huberty

Houston city council member, Dave Martin, encourages the community to attend the event not only to learn more about matters relevant to the Kingwood area, but also to provide their own input. These meetings are a chance to be civically involved, he explained.

“We look forward to hearing these updates and addressing community questions, comments and concerns,” Martin stated in a District E newsletter. “If you have never been before, it is the perfect opportunity to engage with your community and have your questions answered. We hope you will join us. Please feel free to invite a neighbor, friend or colleague. Everyone is welcomed to attend.”

Before the updates presentation begins, residents who come early may speak with representatives of other projects planned in the Kingwood area, including:

Proposed Hamblen Road reroute and development of Edgewater Park — Harris County Pct. 4

TX Loop 494 expansion — Texas Department of Transportation

San Jacinto Greenway Project — Houston Parks Board

The Houston Police Department and Department of Neighborhoods will have representatives present at the event as well.
