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.
