The city has two options for TxDOT’s plans for FM 2920 from North Willow Street to Business 249— full reconstruction or rehabilitation— both of which include raised medians, Community Impact Newspaper previ- ously reported. TISD considering newboundaries in Creekside

According to TxDOT, the proposal includes sidewalks and a turn lane the length of the project as well as raised medians near Business 249, at the Oak Street intersection and from Walnut to Elm streets. It would also include improved drainage, new light poles and trac signals, synchro- nized red lights and closing the right yield from Business 249 to FM 2920. The estimated cost for the project

The newMontgomery County Sheriff’s Office facility provides a satellite jail and more space.

KAYLI THOMPSON/COMMUNITY IMPACT NEWSPAPER

FEATURED IMPACT NOWOPEN The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office opened its new oce in District 4 in Magnolia on April 4. The sheri’s oce and Montgomery County Commissioners Court collaborated to open a new, larger oce with a satellite jail, according to a March 22 statement from the sheri’s oce. The new oce, located at 19038 Unity Park Drive, is 16,760 square feet and cost $11.8 million, which was under budget, according to Sgt. Mike Evans. It has oces for detectives, conference areas, interview rooms, report intake rooms, a dock for unloading and loading arrestees, holding cells, a visitation room and property lockers with room to expand. WORTH THE TRIP NOWOPEN I Heart Mac & Cheese opened April 6 at 26400 Kuykendahl Road, The Woodlands. I Heart Mac & Cheese is a fast-casual restaurant that specializes in made-to-order, build-your-own macaroni and cheese bowls as well as grilled cheese sandwiches. Also on the menu are choices with quinoa, broccoli or cauliower bowls as well as gluten- free pasta. 832-422-3360. www.iheartmacandcheese.com

The facility enables the sheri’s oce to serve the community better because ocers no longer have to drive arrestees up to Conroe to be processed at the jail there. This process used to take deputies four to six hours, depending on the complexity of the arrest, Sheri Rand Henderson said at the opening reception April 4.

OVERCROWDING SOLUTIONS Tomball ISD is considering two plans for rezoning elementary schools serving the Village of Creekside Park. Plan A would result in some students in Creekside Park crossing the northern portion of Kuykendahl Road to get to Timber Creek Elementary School.

Creek because of increasing growth in the district, which is projected to enroll 24,000 students in 2026-27 and 26,000 by 2031-32. Timber Creek is at 82% capacity, according to TISD. Superintendent Martha Salazar- Zamora said at the March 7 meeting the district is out of room at Creekview Elementary, which is at 115% capacity. Overall, the school district had 1,585 new students for the 2021-22 school year and is predicting 865 new students for 2022-23, said Rocky Gardiner, Zonda director and school district consultant, at the March 7 meeting. “With the growth in the district and within the Creekside area, a neighborhood will inevitably have to cross Kuykendahl,” Gutierrez said. Parents and The Woodlands officials have suggested alternatives, such as building a pedestrian bridge across Kuykendahl or hiring crossing guards. Gutierrez said TISD does not employ crossing guards, but the district is willing to bus students. TISD parent Angela Clegg, who lives in the Timarron community, said in an interview the area is walkable, and the school district has continuously encouraged the parents not to use the buses, especially with the bus driver shortage. She said parents received an email about the proposed boundary changes in early March from TISD, and it caught many parents off guard. “This is my first time being frus- trated with the district; I’ve been very happy,” Clegg said. Vanessa Holt contributed to this report.

KUYKENDAHL RD.

Tomball ISD is considering boundary changes affecting Creekview, Creekside Forest and Timber Creek elementary schools. TISD will not make a decision until the district can form a committee to review growth and school capacity, according to an April 8 message sent to the families in the three affected stakeholders and be formed during the end of April or beginning of May so the committee can present a final recom- mendation to the TISD board of trustees in May. Trustees will next meet May 10. TISD presented a boundary draw- ing, Plan A, at the March 7 meeting that would add 100 students each to Creekside Forest and Timber Creek, reducing Creekview by 200 students. After pushback from parents in elementary school boundaries. The committee will comprise Tomball and The Woodlands as well as The Woodlands Township board of directors concerning the safety of children, TISD officials drew up a second plan to consider. Plan A would send some students in Creekview Elementary to Timber Creek Elementary on the opposite side of Kuykendahl Road from their homes, Community Impact News- paper previously reported. Plan B would not send students from those sections of Creekview. However, TISD Chief Operating Officer Steven Gutierrez said at a March 24 Woodlands Township board meeting that even if Plan B is adopted, some students will even- tually need to be zoned to Timber

ThreeHarris County employees are facing felony indictments HARRIS COUNTY Three Harris County senior employ- ees are facing indictments for the felony charges of misuse of official information and tampering with records as of April 11, according to Harris County District Clerk online records. The indictments come one month after search warrants were first executed in connection with a contro- versial county contract. BY EMILY LINCKE FOLLOWING THE CONTROVERSY Harris County’s $11 million contract with Elevate Strategies for COVID-19 vaccine outreach sparked controversy, leading to the recent indictment of three county employees. June 2021: Harris County Commissioners Court approves an $11 million contract with Elevate Strategies.

September 2021: Republican commissioners share concerns about the integrity of the contract awarding process, and the contract is canceled. October 2021: Texas Ranger Daron Parker begins his investigation into the contract. March 2022: Search warrants are executed for laptops, phones and Google files of Harris County employees. April 2022: Three Harris County employees are indicted for criminal felonies related to the contract. SOURCES: HARRIS COUNTY, TEXAS RANGERS, HARRIS COUNTY DISTRICT CLERK/ COMMUNITY IMPACT NEWSPAPER A third warrant was executed for 14 digital Google files, according to a March 10 affidavit by Texas Ranger Daron Parker from the district clerk. The search warrants were granted based on evidence provided by Parker in his investigation of the county’s canceled contract with firm Elevate Strategies, which Harris County hired to conduct community outreach encouraging county residents to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Commissioners voted unanimously to termi- nate the contract Sept. 14.

Aaron Dunn, Wallis Nader and Alex Triantaphyllis are each facing warrants for their arrests for the criminal charges, according to the district clerk’s records. Dunn, Nader and Triantaphyllis serve as the senior adviser for public safety and emergency management; policy director; and chief of staff for Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo’s office, respectively. Hidalgo posted a statement to her Twitter account April 12 stating that the indicted employees will not be removed from her team. “I do not and will not cave to bullying or political dirty tricks,” Hidalgo said via the statement. “I have not seen anything to suggest that my staff did anything but work tirelessly for the people of Harris County.” Search warrants were first executed in connection with the investigation for electronic devices March 11 and March 16 by the Texas Rangers. The investigation began in October over the county’s canceled $11 million COVID-19 vaccine outreach contract with Elevate Strategies.
