Second Cap Park Public Meeting:  July 17, 6:00 - 7:30pm, Midtown Offices, 410 Pierce Street. Please attend this very important meeting regarding changes that significantly impact Museum Park Neighborhood. This is your opportunity to learn more about the plans for the Cap Parks, which will be installed across US59/I69 as part of the North Houston Highway Improvement Project.  You will see the latest design plans and have an opportunity to share your own ideas. Please attend…this is our future.

Proposed Community Parking Plan:  Additional meetings to discuss the proposed Community Parking Plan have been scheduled for August. MPNA will provide meeting details as information become available. Please continue to submit any questions, comments, concerns, requests, etc. via email to parking@houstontx.gov.

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 street intersections, please do so with a note to city officials, jeffrey.weatherford@houstontx.gov and ian.hlavacek@houstontx.gov.

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 info@museumparkna.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.
