311 Presentation. Isaiah Monroe and Pamela Scott from 311 gave a presentation about the 311 system for reporting and resolving problems noted in our neighborhood. They emphasized that 311 can be used to report almost anything or to simply get information.
There are four ways to report a problem to 311:
- Website www.houston311.org where you can submit a problem or check to see what problems have already been reported. Hover over the red dot on the map to see details or status.
- 311 App: Download the 311 app for iphone or android and use the app to submit a problem.
- Call 311 and talk to a 311 operator. Problems can be reported anonymously or you can provide your email address to have the case #/report emailed to you, which will allow you to follow the progress/completion. If you have a question, just call 311 to get an answer!
- Email 311 with a problem to: email@example.com
Hermann Drive Pedestrian Safety Concerns. A growing sense of concern for the safety of residents and visitors crossing Hermann Drive has arisen in recent conversations among neighbors, at the spring Quality of Life Committee meeting, and at MPNA Board meetings. As residents of Museum Park, we frequently see/experience incidents along Hermann Drive that should be reported to the City of Houston. If you want to share your concerns with specific stories, pictures, and any specific street intersection, please do so with a note to city officials listed here.
Noise issues. If you or a neighbor have concerns regarding noise coming from bars near you, please send an email noting your concerns along with your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Other Neighborhood Associations from this area have formed a group to address these concerns. Please let us know if you want to get more involved in working with them to find solutions.
