Other concepts being studied, such as a proposed underground ood tunnel, would take longer. “I think that in Harris County, ooding will always be a risk for people in the Cypress Creek watershed and in all of our watersheds,” HCFCD Deputy Executive Director Matt Zeve said. “But we do feel very strongly that

FEATURED IMPACT IN THE NEWS Hewlett Packard Enterprise announced plans Dec. 1 to relocate its headquarters from San Jose, California, to a brand new campus under construction in CityPlace at Springwoods Village. The announcement comes just weeks after construction ocially topped out at the new campus, which will include two ve-story buildings located at the southwest corner of East Mossy Oaks Road and Lake Plaza Drive in Spring. Construction on the new campus began in February 2020 and is slated for completion by spring 2022. According to a Dec. 1 press release from the global tech company, Houston is HPE’s largest employment hub in the U.S. “As we look to the future, our business needs, opportunities for cost savings, and team members’ preferences about the future of work, we are excited to relocate HPE’s headquarters to the Houston region,” HPE CEO Antonio Neri said in a statement. “Houston is an attractive market to recruit and retain future diverse talent and where we are currently constructing a state-of-the-art new campus. We look forward to continuing to expand our strong presence in the market.” While HPE ocials said the Bay Area will continue to be a strategic hub for HPE innovation, they also announced

the company would be consolidating a number of sites in the Bay Area to its San Jose campus. However, no layos will be associated with this move, the release stated. HPE will be the fth major corporation to be housed in CityPlace at Springwoods Village; it joins HP Inc., Southwestern Energy, the American Bureau of Shipping and Exxon Mobil. Upon completion, the new campus will feature 440,000 square feet of space for rent, structured parking for 2,055 cars and various amenities, including oce space, a tness center, a cafe, a kitchen, a pharmacy and a laboratory.

ensure that previously planned projects and future recommended projects will satisfy transportation needs in the community. “While we’re planning for the future in undeveloped areas, we must also protect existing communities, provide for new ways that residential neighborhoods can easily connect to parks and greenbelts while enhancing access for emergency services,” he said. Browne said EHRA will work with county precincts and host several community meetings to develop a plan that addresses as many transportation concerns as possible. The final plan, which should be completed in 2021, will be brought to the Harris County Engineering Department for implementation. Harris County Engineer John Blount said the new thoroughfare plan is integral to giving residents in unincorporated Harris County a voice in the future of transportation. “Previously, the vast majority of major thoroughfare control was

actually given to the city of Houston because their extraterritorial jurisdiction covers the vast majority of Harris County, yet the individuals in the county outside of city limits don’t get to vote for the people who decide where the roads go,” Blount said. “So we’re taking a different approach and adopting our own major thoroughfare plan.” PLAN PRIORITIES The Harris County Multimodal Thoroughfare Plan will address several mobility concerns. minimize the instances in which Houston while minimizing heavy truck traffic near neighborhoods enhance access to public transportation augment pedestrian trails and bike routes along bayous reroute existing roads that cross obstacles and flood plains railroads and roads intersect improve access to the Port of SOURCES: EHRA, HARRIS COUNTY ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT/COMMUNITY IMPACT NEWSPAPER

Engineering Department and EHRA, a Houston-based civil engineering firm, updated officials on an ongoing countywide thoroughfare plan in a virtual webinar Nov. 17. The Harris County Multimodal Thoroughfare Plan is a comprehensive effort to assess current and future transportation needs in unincorporated Harris County, including roads for cars and trucks, mass transit, bike lanes and pedestrian routes. The plan, which is being spearheaded by Chris Browne, EHRA vice president and practice area leader of planning and visioning, is just one component of the Countywide Transportation Plan that launched in January. The plan also includes the Equity in Transportation Plan and Vision Zero, an initiative with the goal of achieving zero traffic fatalities and severe injuries in Harris County by 2030.

PARKS&RECREATION Trail projects connect greenways

PUSHING FOR PARKS

Despite setbacks from the coronavirus pandemic, Harris County Precinct 4 is moving forward with several trail projects, which will be completed in 2021 and 2022. All projects are solely funded by the precinct.

to the Kickerillo-Mischer Preserve, which is an 80-acre nature preserve. The trails are expected to be completed by 2022, Johnston said. “We just put in a new playground [at Kickerillo], but we haven’t made the connection yet,” he said. “We’re not going to open that until we finish the connection under [Hwy.] 249.” Improving access to the Spring Creek Greenway, a 19-mile trail from Tomball to Humble, is also moving along, Johnston said. He said precinct officials hope to finish a 2.77-mile segment from Rothwood Park through the Springwoods Village Preserve this summer. Work on the segment has stalled due to design changes, Johnston said. After the projects are completed, Johnston said the precinct will have spent most of the funds from the $60 million parks and trails bond approved by voters in 2014. He said he does not know if the county plans to invest in another park bond soon.

Harris County officials said parks and recreation projects in the Spring and Klein area have continued steadily through the coronavirus pandemic, with several trails set to break ground or wrap up next year. Dennis Johnston, the parks director of Harris County Precinct 4, said the precinct completed a project in May that added new asphalt to the existing trail system at the D. Bradley McWilliams YMCA at Cypress Creek and deepened its fishing pond. YMCA Director of Operations Cody Meredith said the YMCA donated its pond to Precinct 4 in 2019 to help connect the 100 Acre Wood Preserve to the Kickerillo-Mischer Preserve. “Seeing the trail around the pond being utilized by families has made it all worthwhile,” he said. The precinct plans to break ground on a project in the second quarter of 2021 that will add trails under Hwy. 249 on the north and south sides of Cypress Creek to connect the YMCA

Harris Countymakes headway on criminal justice studies

BY KELLY SCHAFLER

Tracking police reform

In early 2021, the Harris County Justice Administration Department aims to release nal versions of several studies into the county’s criminal justice system. Meanwhile, local law enforcement agencies are getting close to forming a uniformed use-of-force policy. On June 9, the Harris County Commissioners Court approved 11 motions aimed to address the criminal justice system following the death of George Floyd, a Houston native who died in police custody in Minneapolis. A motion also directed the county’s eight constables meet with other law enforcement agencies to develop a model use-of-force policy. Ana Yáñez Correa, the deputy director of the Harris County Justice Administration Department, said the department also hopes to launch pilot programs with law enforcement groups next year. “We are taking a multipronged approach to fulll these mandates,” she said. Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman said via email in November that constables formalized a draft policy and they plan to coordinate with entities for input.

Harris County commissioners approved a range of studies into the county’s criminal justice system on June 9. Ocials with the Justice Administration Department said in November that some nal reports could be released in early 2021.

• Called for a study into racial disparities in the criminal justice system and the criminalization of poverty • Called for a study to examine creating a civilian oversight board to investigate allegations of abuse of force by local police COURT ACTIONS

• Proposed creating a public site where instances of police use of force would be compiled • Directed the Justice Administration Department to work with law enforcement agencies to come up with a uniform use-of-force policy

He said Precinct 4’s policy mirrors those of all other Harris County agencies, but he did not provide policy details. “Our policy as well as other agencies have all been approved and vetted by the Harris County Attorney’s Oce,” he said.

Harris County is working to make right the appointment of Isabel Longoria as the county’s rst-ever elections administrator. This came after County Attorney Vince Ryan received a letter Nov. 25 from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, stating the county did not follow the proper appointment process, which Paxton said made Longoria’s appointment “unlawful” and “null and void.” The letter came one week after Longoria was virtually sworn into the oce Nov. 18. The newly created oce will be tasked with setting polling locations, counting ballots and registering voters—duties previously split between the county clerk and tax assessor-collector. According to Paxton’s letter, the county violated the Texas Election Code because it did not notify the Texas secretary of state’s oce in a timely manner of certain milestones in the oce’s creation and Longoria’s appointment. “Harris County failed to meet the requisites stipulated in the

Harris County Emergency Services District No. 11 took steps to be an EMS provider for residents in December. The district ocially hired Doug Hooten, who has 35 years of experi- ence, as its rst executive director. “The people providing patient care in this community do amazing work every day,” Hooten said in a statement. “My number one goal is to help design and build a system that will build on their commitment to this community.” On Dec. 7, the district directed Hooten to hire chief operating and administration ocers, an executive assistant and a medical director. Regina Adams, who represents ESD No. 11 with law rmRadclie Bobbitt Adams Polley PLLC, said hiring a medical director is required to apply for an EMS provider license. Cypress Creek EMS ocials said the district intends to become an EMS provider, but that has not been conrmed. Adams said the board is obtaining the license to avoid a “bad arrangement without its own license as a backup.”

identied deciencies within 14 days of the letter’s receipt or the state will pursue “appropriate legal remedies.” At the Dec. 1 Harris County Commissioners Court meeting, Precinct 4 Commissioner Jack Cagle said he agreed with Paxton’s opinion and restated his opposition to the creation of the oce. Cagle said he believes election ocials should be elected, not appointed. However, Precinct 1 Commis- sioner Rodney Ellis said he was proud of the creation of the oce and he believed Paxton’s letter to be an “attack” on the voting rights of Harris County residents. At the Dec. 15 court meeting, county ocials said Ryan sent a letter to Paxton addressing the con- cerns prior to the 14-day deadline, but Paxton had not responded.

School district faces overstaffing, underenrollment for school year

No action taken on trusteearrest SPRING ISD At the Dec. 8 board meeting, Spring ISD trustees took no action following the arrest of trustee Donald Davis on Dec. 4. According to Harris County District Clerk documents, Davis was charged with unlawful disclosure of intimate visual material. He was later released from jail after posting a $3,000 bond. “The allegations against our board member stand polar opposite to the district’s values,” the district said in a statement. “We will keep our community informed of any decisions or actions that are taken as a result of this arrest.” As of press time Dec. 15, the district had not taken further action regarding Davis' position. According to the district’s website, Davis is a retired SISD teacher who was first elected to the board in November 2015 and was re-elected in 2018.

SPRING ISD Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Spring ISD is overstaffed, underenrolled and facing a revenue shortage this school year, according to a midyear budget outlook presentation given by Chief Financial Officer Ann Westbrooks on Dec. 3. The district reported 1,630 fewer students enrolled in the 2020-21 year than projected. Westbrooks said this trend is one school districts are seeing state- and nationwide. As a result, Westbrooks said SISD is overstaffed by about 71 positions in various departments. Looking to the 2021-22 school year, Westbrooks said the district must make adjustments so the size of its staff is proportional to its student enrollment. “We’re closing vacancies in areas where we have overages, and we’re holding off on hiring in areas where we can,” she said. As student enrollment has a

BUSINESSFEATURE OnAWhim Family boutique looks to new year for pandemic recovery A fter shutting down for two months during the early height of the coronavirus pandemic, On A Whim boutique is looking to recover as 2021 approaches. Owner Jamie Jourgensen said she opened the boutique in 2015 after she was laid o from the oil industry. She said she wanted a change and the chance to be her own boss. Now she sells unique clothing and accessories for all ages as well as her family’s bloody mary mix and pickled vegetables from the Shaggy Dog brand. She also opened a children’s boutique next door in 2017. Since the store’s opening ve years ago, Jourgensen said there has been steady growth. “Every year has gotten better, until 2020,” she said. “This is the only year that we’ve gone backward a little bit.” During the early period of the pandemic, Jourgensen’s main boutique and the children’s boutique were shut down for two months. Jourgensen said many customers reached out to her personally, trying to nd ways to support them, whether that was shopping or even oering to do free landscaping. Suzanne Stroh, Jourgensen’s mother who helps run the store, said the local community has been supportive, making a point of shopping at local places instead of big-box stores. “People have been amazing down here supporting small businesses,” Stroh said. “So that has really helped the whole town tremendously.” As the holiday season approaches, Jourgensen and Stroh said they are hopeful for business to slowly ramp up as they extend their hours to attract evening shoppers. “This is kind of business as usual now,” Stroh said. “We’re in a good time of year, and people are starting to get festive and trying to support small businesses.” BY ANDY LI
