What You Can Do to Help Combat Aggressive Panhandling

(from the Greater Post Oak/West Bellfort Neighborhood Coalition)

  • Do not give money directly to those panhandling on the street.
  • Give to organizations like SEARCH (http://www.searchhomeless.org/) or the Coalition for the Homeless (http://www.homelesshouston.org/), to ensure your money goes to those that need help and not to professional panhandlers.
  • Report aggressive behavior and drug use to the Houston Police Department non-emergency line at 713-884-3131
  • Report loitering, littering, drug use and aggressive behavior at Metro stops to the Metro Police line at 713-224-2677
  • Contact 311 to report littering and damage to city property
  • Sign the petition to create a zone that would prohibit sleeping on the street during daytime hours. We will begin to collect signatures for this petition in September of 2016
  • Attend public session at City Hall to raise awareness among our elected officials of the issue of aggressive panhandling (Date TBD)
  • Join your local civic association to help in their efforts to beautify the esplanades and make them locations that are not conducive to aggressive panhandling.

Thank you for helping the community combat aggressive panhandlers that destroy our neighborhoods and for helping to assist those that are truly in need of food, shelter, healthcare and other basic needs.

 

Recycling to Continue but Glass no Longer Accepted

The City of Houston and Waste Management have reached tentative agreement on a new 2-year contract that will allow the city to continue offering recycling services without any disruption. The only change in service that Houstonians will notice is the elimination of glass from the list of items that are acceptable for placement in the green curbside single-stream recycling bins.  Glass, currently has no value on the commodities market, breaks down during collection and transportation and is unduly destructive to the processing equipment.

Residents will still have the option of dropping off glass for recycling at the City's neighborhood depositories.

Proposed Aggressive Panhandling Zone

Council Member Green is working with the Civic Club Board and residents to find a solution to the aggressive panhandling problem at Post Oak and West Belfort. Surveillance cameras will be installed at Meyer Park and the Chase Bank to keep an eye on the aggressive panhandling situation. Council Member Green's office also provided several documents that will help our neighborhood work with surrounding neighborhoods and businesses to create a zone that will help reduce the aggressive panhandling in our neighborhood. This zone will require a petition in order for the zone to be created. The following documents were presented:

  1. A map of the proposed zone
  2. The language of the current City Ordinance governing the creation of the zone (see below)
  3. A proposed amendment to the existing City Ordinance regarding aggressive panhandling (see below)
  4. A previous, successful petition that created the East Downtown Zone

Please review these documents and contact the President of the Civic Club if you are interested in getting involved in reducing the aggressive panhandling in our neighborhood.
