Change to 2015 Assessments

At the December board meeting, the board passed the budget for the 2015 fiscal year. One notable change was an increase of the security contract Meyerland has with Precinct 5. The cost amount per household will be $237.17, up from $226.00. The rise in cost is due to the County’s 5% contract price increase.

Please note that the annual assessment invoices will therefore not be mailed to residents for a few weeks. We appreciate your patience. If you have any questions, please email the office at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call us at 713-729-2167.

Traffic Alert

Effective Monday, December 8th, Runnymeade will be reduced to one-way traffic heading southbound from Dumfries to West Bellfort. Vehicles wanting to travel north from West Bellfort will need to use Balmforth.

This closure is due to the relaying of Runnymeade and will likely continue for months. Please heed the traffic signs at all times to avoid an accident and damage to your vehicle.

We know that this project will progress into the next year and will not likely be completed prior to the summer months of 2015. We greatly appreciate your cooperation and understanding as the city continues to improve our streets and drainage system.

Holiday Safety Reminders

We are all excited about the upcoming holiday season. Looking around the community one can already see the holiday decorating. As the season quickly approaches, Here are a few safety reminders.

Please remember to turn on your exterior lights at night. This is for your safety and for the safety of your neighbors. Not only do you light the pathway to your house, you deter crime by lighting up darker parts of your home that may provide  cover for criminals.

Second, remember that this is a very busy time for criminals who watch for delivery trucks. If you purchase items online, consider having the delivery companies hold your packages at their facilities until you are able to retrieve them, or track your shipment to know when the package will arrive so you can be home to receive it. You might also consider shipping it to a location (such as your work address) to ensure that your delivery is made.

Meyerland - the Changing Face of Houston

The Houston Press has been publishing a series of articles on significant residential neighborhoods in Houston.  

Recently, Meyerland was the subject of one of these articles. It provides a brief history of Meyerland's beginnings when founded by George Meyer and the ribbon-cutting by then-Vice President Richard Nixon. 

Meyerland's many virtues are noted, not the least of which is the close proximity to downtown which remains one of the features that keeps the neighborhood attractive to the many new residents who are tearing down older homes in favor of new ones.  

Even the "Hero Tree" memorial that stands in dedication to Captain Gary L. Herod, the namesake of one of our local elementary schools gets a special mention. 

You can read the entire article on the Houston Press website.
