PCT 2 HARRIS COUNTY – Last Thursday, Oct. 14 Commissioner Adrian Garcia presented the completed Parks and Trails Plan to the community. This plan is not only meant to enhance the physical environment of the various parks and neighborhoods in Precinct 2, but also to weave a cohesive relationship between different neighborhoods through the precinct. The Commissioner has initiated an ambitious project, to study each community and present a Comprehensive Master Plan for enhancing the physical and quality of life aspects of its features. This includes roads, drainage, and other amenities as well as the park system.

The presentation of the Parks and Trails Final Plan was made through ZOOM, to an audience that totalled almost 100 participants. The presentation was made by Katie Coyne, project manager for the landscape planning firm AsakuraRobinson. It was monitored by Jorge Bustamante, planning manager of Precinct 2.

After over a year of meeting with community stakeholders, the Precinct 2 Parks and Trails Plan is complete. Through a collaborative process involving in-depth community engagement, research, and analysis, the Precinct 2 Parks and Trails Plan outlines how the parks and trails system will best serve the diverse communities in Precinct 2. The Plan will guide the Commissioner and the Precinct 2 team in prioritizing investments, incorporating best practices for programming and design, and help create and maintain the best parks and trails for the Precinct 2 community.

NORTH SHORE, October 14, 2021 – GPISD Stadium: Head Coach Jon Kay’s “Eastside Boys” football team coasted to another district lopsided victory over HISD’s Summer Creek Bulldogs 45-16.

Team Captains taking center field for the Mustangs for the coin toss were Denver Harris, Evan Jackson, Xavier Owens and Joseph Richards.

Coach Kay has been unable to control some of his team players from committing Personal Foul Penalties; they committed 3 giving up 45 yards (yds). In a game where they have a weak non-threatening opponent like this one, there’s no excuse for lack-of-discipline emotional fouls. Offsides, offensive motion and pass interference fouls are normal and will happen to the best of teams, but not so with personal fouls. In a tight game this can mean a loss.
