To Keep You Informed: Turkey Leg Hut

November 25, 2019 4:15 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The Museum Park Neighborhood Association is committed to maintaining the goals of our Mission Statement including the Promotion of safety, security, and well being of residents and property within our neighborhood.  With this goal in mind, we have sought to work with area agencies and businesses to ensure the safety of all residents within the neighborhood. 

MPNA reached out to the owners of the Turkey Leg Hut to engage in a neighbor-to-neighbor discussion regarding the impacts of this very successful business on the surrounding neighbors. In preceding months we have sought a meeting with the owners through direct contact, with the assistance of HPD officers, through our District D Council Member Dwight Boykins, and through the Houston Southeast Management District Public Safety Committee. The owners have not been available to meet, but we are aware they are taking steps to address some of the concerns.

Successful businesses are crucial to the vitality of this neighborhood, but not to the detriment of the health of residents.  We urge the Turkey Leg Hut to immediately fix the problem of unfiltered smoke negatively impacting the health and safety of nearby residents as well as TLH employees.

Museum Park is a mixed-use neighborhood that includes a diverse group of residents, as well as numerous restaurants and businesses, museums, churches, healthcare providers, and other public spaces.  Being a good neighbor is essential to everyone’s quality of life.  We seek only that.
