COMMISSIONER GARCIA & AREA-ELECTEDS RESPOND TO TXDOT’S FINAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT ON I-45 EXPANSION

Harris County, TX— Harris County Precinct 2 Commissioner Adrian Garcia is proud to announce the start of construction on improvements along Wallisville Road in Highlands.

Houston, TX - Houston Mayor Pro Tem Dave Martin and Harris County Precinct 2 Commissioner Adrian Garcia are excited to announce the outcome of the El Dorado Swale Survey. Mayor Pro Tem Martin was confident residents would oppose the installation of a median swale, however, due to the increased cost of in-ground detention Mayor Pro Tem Martin needed data to support this design modification to the existing El Dorado Expansion Project. The residents of Clear Lake and surrounding communities provided more than 1,500 unique responses with an overwhelming 80% in opposition of the median swale.

Harris County, TX — TODAY, Harris County Commissioners Court has adopted an overall reduced tax rate for fiscal year 2021. Previously, Precinct 2 Commissioner Adrian Garcia had proposed the motion to cut property tax rates, which was approved unanimously. The new tax rate adopted will save taxpayers 1.3 cents per $100 of assessed value on their homes or approximately $26 on a home valued at $200,000. The plan not only saves taxpayers money, it also still funds crucial priorities such as Flood Control and Harris Health.

Harris County, TX— Since being elected into office, Commissioner Adrian Garcia has made drainage maintenance a major priority. This week, he celebrated the completion of 1 million linear feet of ditching in Precinct 2. Roadside ditching and drainage maintenance improves water conveyance to drainage outfalls, which helps in the reduction of potential flooding for residents and businesses. Without proper maintenance, standing water can penetrate and seep under road surfaces causing deterioration, which in turn, requires more frequent, costly road repairs, and neighborhood flooding. Many neighborhoods that have not been serviced in years now have clean, excavated ditches.  

Commissioner Garcia has commenced a first-of-its-kind collaboration with the Houston Advanced Research Center (HARC) and industry leaders to strengthen the County’s ability to adeptly analyze air quality in the Precinct 2.
