Second Ward Action Plan

The Second Ward Complete Communities Action Plan (.pdf) is online! A Spanish version, El Plan de Acción de Second Ward (.pdf) is also available. The Action Plan outlines the vision, policies, goals, and projects that have been identified by stakeholders over a six-month planning process that included two large public meetings and an examination of more than twenty local community plans and studies. Over 300 leaders, stakeholders, and partners attended the public meetings and provided valuable input and guidance. The goals and projects work toward a vision of a healthier, more resilient, prosperous, and equitable future for the community.

DO YOUR PART TO PROTECT OUR PIPES!

70% of sanitary sewer overflows in Houston are caused by clogs from fats, oils and grease poured down the drain and wipes flushed down toilets.

Put grease in its place! Dispose of leftover cooking waste with these easy steps: pour it in a jar, can, or bag, cool it, and once full, toss it in the trash.

Also, only flush the three P’s - pee, poo, and (toilet) paper. Everything else should go in the trash.

Together, we can all prevent clogs and harmful overflows! Learn more: www.ProtectOurPipes.org.
