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.

Water Line Project in Section 10

Starting late in April and continuing through the end of December, the City of Houston will be replacing water lines running through almost all of the streets in Meyerland Section 10 (near Herod Elementary).  The water lines will be run underground between the sidewalk and the curb in front of each property.  Installation will include placing the lines, having them flushed by the City of Houston, then connecting them to the individual properties. Most of the work will not affect the sidewalks or the driveway approaches however, it is possible that some may need to be removed in order to complete the work or may be unintentionally damaged.
