    Howdy Neighbor! Thank you for your question. The start of the project requires the placement of Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) inlet protection. The inlets are currently protected and not blocked. For any additional questions or concerns, please visit EngageHouston.org.

    Howdy Neighbor! Thank you for your question. Alder Circle is within the limits for the City of Bellaire and our drainage system is not designed to connect to this City of Bellaire system.

    Just a Neighbor asked over 1 year ago

    Howdy Neighbor! Thank you for your questions. This project does require us to break-up the concrete portion of your driveway that is located in the right-of- way, the Contractor is required to return the driveway to City of Houston codes and standards. If warranted, please reach out to the contractor to request special provisions to be considered, but all related costs of re-installation of special decorative features or improvements over-and-above City of Houston standards will be at the sole cost of the property owner. This hydrant in question will remain at its current location with the sidewalk installed in front of the hydrant.

    WDM asked about 1 year ago

    Howdy Neighbor!! Thank You for your question. The current project will install new sanitary sewer trunk lines (underground tunneling system) within the proposed roadway leaving stub-outs (pipe connectors) for future connections in front of each home. The switch in service from the back-lot connections to new front connections will occur in a future subsequent project. The current project will only affect the roadway and not the lawns for this current project.

  • Share I just watched the February 18 virtual meeting and it was said that there would not be sidewalks on the West side of Alder Street. All of the drawings on this site show sidewalks drawn on the West side of Alder Street. There are currently no sidewalks on the West side of Alder Street. Can you clarify if there will be sidewalks added on the West side of Alder Street? Also if there will not be sidewalks added to the West side of Alder Street as drawn will there be ramps added to the existing sidewalks on Alder Circle and Whitehaven Streets?

    Howdy Neighbor! Thank you for your questions! There are no sidewalks on the west side of Alder. Please note that the area you are referencing is outside the scope of our project and belongs to the City of Bellaire. However, the proposed wheelchair ramps will be constructed and tied with existing Whitehaven and Alder Circle sidewalks. Thank you!

  • Share Just want to leave a supportive note from what is probably a silent majority of folks who are indifferent to or supportive of sidewalk construction. Hope the loud folks who have the time to attend public meetings don’t cause an ill-informed decision to cancel the sidewalk or make the sidewalk optional to unsupportive individual property owners (which would render the sidewalk useless). I know I would be disappointed if my street goes under construction for several months and the opportunity to have a health, safety, and property value-accretive amenity is not realized. on Facebook Share Just want to leave a supportive note from what is probably a silent majority of folks who are indifferent to or supportive of sidewalk construction.

  • Share The majority of residents in our neighborhood absolutely do not want sidewalks constructed on our streets. Why is this being crammed down our throats without any consideration of residents' desires? The City of Bellaire voted recently that any plan for sidewalk construction must be approved by at least 50% of the affected homeowners. Are we not living in a democracy? The reasons for NOT constructing sidewalks are numerous. All I see in favor of sidewalks is "because the ordinance" says so. Safety? Please. The sidewalks will become a safety hazard within 5 years when tree roots and soils expansion break them apart. Then it becomes the homeowner responsibility to maintain them. Thanks but I have enough expenses maintaining my property, I don't need this added burden thrown at me by the city. The negative impacts of installing sidewalks will far outlive their usefulness. They will be a burden, nuisance, eyesore, contribute to global warming, reduce solar heat absorption, kill trees, the list goes on... this is just a bad and foolish project, especially when no-one has any say in the matter. on Facebook Share The majority of residents in our neighborhood absolutely do not want sidewalks constructed on our streets.
