Langham Creek
Conveyance Improvement Project
On Wednesday, November 10th, City Council passed an interlocal agreement with METRO and Harris County Flood Control District (HCFCD) for the Langham Creek Conveyance Improvement Project.
This project consists of the preparation and delivery of a preliminary engineering study to improve the conveyance capacity of Langham Creek by modifying the Clay Road bridge over Langham Creek. The Clay Road Bridge (The Bridge) is currently the only location that provides for the flow of water from Langham Creek into the Addicks Reservoir. The current span of the Bridge does not adequately convey storm water from the approximately two-mile floodplain upstream of Clay Road into the downstream Addicks Reservoir contributing to upstream flooding in extreme events.
Restaurant and Meal Program
The Houston Eats Restaurant Support (H.E.R.S.) program supports restaurants located in communities disproportionally impacted by COVID-19 and provides high-quality meals to vulnerable Houstonians located in these same neighborhoods. H.E.R.S. is intended to provide this critical food access and small business support through the end of the year, when Houstonians need additional assistance to feed their families and small businesses need additional assistance to stay open.
In order to qualify to receive food or to supply food, you must be located in one of the following zip codes:
77003, 77004, 77009, 77011, 77012, 77016, 77020, 77021, 77022, 77026, 77028, 77029, 77033, 77036, 77040, 77045, 77051, 77053, 77060, 77071, 77072, 77074, 77076, 77078, 77081, 77087, 77088, 77091, 77093, 77099, and 77489.
