A Message from the Executive Director

We remain under an order issued by County Judge Lina Hidalgo to Stay Home and Work Safe until at least April 30. District staff will continue to work remotely and district offices will remain closed until further guidance is provided by the federal, state or local governments.

District services including public safety and security, graffiti and litter abatement, and bandit sign removal, are operating on their regular schedules, while following enhanced safety procedures that include protective gear and social distancing.

We remain committed to helping our law enforcement partners protect and serve our businesses and do our part to keep the community safe. You can contact SEAL security officers who serve the district at 281.407.0801. Remember to always call 9-1-1 in case of an emergency.

You may contact District staff as follows:

We sincerely hope that you, your families, and your businesses are doing well as you navigate these uncertain times. We know that together, we can and will weather the pandemic, and be even stronger going forward.

David Hawes, Executive Director
