Vol. 6, Issue 1 – 01.05.2024
Dear District F,

Allow me to be the last person to wish you a Happy New Year. I can’t believe we are walking into 2024, but before we return to the hustle and bustle of school, work, and our demands, I want to present the 2023 Annual Report entitled, District F is the Future.

The richness of our community is a miniature version of the global world and our City. If we can demonstrate how to invest in public safety, quality of life, youth programming, economic development, and neighborhood revitalization, we can model how it is done throughout the region.

Much of what is reflected in the report is a shining example of our collaborative successes – staff, stakeholders, neighbors, and friends. Take a bow.

P. S. Hard copies will be mailed to HOA/Civic Clubs on file in January.


Alief: Please join Super Neighborhood 25 on Saturday, January 6th, to plant trees on Wilcrest and Carvel. Details are on the flyer below. Start the top of the year in service to our community.

Briarmeadow: Good news! The long-awaited traffic calming devices are scheduled for installation this month. These are funded by District F council funds at $16,000; my office provided your HOA with the official notice of construction below for easy access.

Tanglewilde: The civic club submitted the Prohibited Yard Parking application on your behalf, and the Planning Department is currently reviewing it. Once approved (by the council), this will allow the neighborhood to restrict car parking in the home’s front yard and qualify for enforcement. Learn more about the ordinance here.

Thank you to Houston Public Works for repairing the emergency leak on Richmond/Ocee on January 1st. Unfortunately, the leak was not called into 311. If you see something, assume no one has reported it so we can document the severity in the system for speedy attention.

Piney Point: Please visit LetsTalkHouston.org and review the Conservation District FAQs in English and Spanish as you engage with your neighbors for accurate information.

Also, we need to schedule a community meeting to provide an update on Amanda Ln’s challenges and next steps. My office will work with the Civic Club to plan and promote—more details.

Eldridge/West Oaks: The Chelford City project is currently on hold until the City secures a new contractor. My office will provide a more formal update to SN 17 and the HOAs in the area in the next few days.

As we move into the year’s first quarter, we remain fully committed to providing you and your neighbors with the best high-quality engagement events that offer resources and information. Stay tuned for the following announcements:

x District F Bike Ride
x Lunar New Year
x Human Trafficking announcement with Consular Corps.

Lastly, thank you to each of you who attended the Inauguration Ceremony on Tuesday, January 2nd, at The Wortham Theater. Your support and presence were felt, and I do not take it lightly.

As we move into our second term with a new Administration, please know I will provide updates on new initiatives and issues related to District F as always.

Let’s keep the west side, the best side!
Have a great weekend.


Councilmember Tiffany D. Thomas
