The Harris County Flood Control District will hold a Community Engagement
Meeting for the South Mayde Creek Channel Conveyance Improvements and
Related Stormwater Detention projects. The purpose of this meeting is to
inform residents about the status of the projects and share project

The purpose of Channel Conveyance Improvements on Lower South Mayde Creek is
to improve the flow of stormwater and to explore the possibility of a bypass
channel to increase the discharge of stormwater into Addicks Reservoir. The
purpose of the Stormwater Detention Basin project on South Mayde Creek is to
safely store excess stormwater during heavy rain events and slowly release
it back into the bayou when the threat of flooding has passed. The two
projects will work together to reduce flooding risks along lower South Mayde
Creek in the Addicks Reservoir watershed of northwest Harris County. Both
projects will be funded with bonds approved by Harris County voters on
August 25, 2018. Community engagement is an important component of the Bond
Program, and we invite your participation as the program is implemented.

The Community Engagement Meeting will be held on:

Thursday, November 14, 2019, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Richard & Meg Weekley Community Center
8440 Greenhouse Road
Houston, Texas 77433

The Community Engagement Meeting will begin at 6 p.m. with a brief
presentation at 6:15 p.m. An open house will follow the presentation, where
interested citizens are invited to review informational exhibits, discuss
the project with Harris County representatives, and provide comments to the
Harris County Flood Control District. Information from the meeting will be
available the next day on the website.

October 16, 2023, HOUSTON, TX – Congressional Candidate Amanda Edwards has raised over $1 million in less than 4 months, a substantial sum that helps bolster the frontrunner status of the former At-Large Houston City Council Member in her bid for U.S. Congress. Edwards raised over $433,000 in Q3 of 2023. This strong Q3 report expands on a successful Q2 where Edwards announced just 11 days after declaring her candidacy that she had raised over $600,000. With over $829,000 in cash-on-hand at the end of the September 30th financial reporting period, Edwards proves again that she is the clear frontrunner in the race. “I am beyond grateful for the strong outpouring of support that will help me to win this race and serve the incredible people of the 18th Congressional District,” said Edwards. “We are at a critical juncture in our nation’s trajectory, and we need to send servant leaders to Congress who can deliver the results the community deserves. The strong support from our supporters will help us to cultivate an 18th Congressional District where everyone in it can thrive.” Edwards said. “Amanda understands the challenges that the hard-working folks of the 18th Congressional District face because she has never lost sight of who she is or where she comes from; she was born and raised right here in the 18th Congressional District of Houston,” said Kathryn McNiel, spokesperson for Edwards’ campaign. Edwards has been endorsed by Higher Heights PAC, Collective PAC, Krimson PAC, and the Brady PAC. She has also been supported by Beto O’Rourke, among many others.

As September 13th rolls around, we extend our warmest birthday wishes to the creative powerhouse, Tyler Perry, a man whose indomitable spirit and groundbreaking work have left an indelible mark on the world of entertainment. With his multifaceted talents as an actor, playwright, screenwriter, producer, and director, Tyler Perry has not only entertained but also inspired audiences worldwide, particularly within the African-American community, where his influence and role have been nothing short of powerful. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1969, Tyler Perry’s journey to stardom was a path riddled with adversity. Raised in a turbulent household, he found refuge in writing, using it as a therapeutic outlet. This period of introspection gave rise to one of his most iconic creations, Madea, a vivacious, no-nonsense grandmother who would later become a beloved figure in Perry’s works, offering a unique blend of humor and profound life lessons. Despite facing numerous challenges, including rejection and financial struggles, Perry’s determination and unwavering belief in his abilities propelled him forward. In 1992, he staged his first play, “I Know I’ve Been Changed,” which, although met with limited success, was a pivotal moment in his career. Unfazed by initial setbacks, Perry continued to hone his craft, and by 1998, he had successfully produced a string of stage plays that showcased his storytelling prowess.
