Merry Christmas and happy holidays! Let’s all take a moment to appreciate winter evenings filled with delicious treats, festive decorations and family time around the Christmas tree. Although the communitywide festivities may look a bit different this year, the spirit remains the same. I encourage you to take advantage of the opportunities around you. Your Precinct 4 friends offer plenty of virtual and limited in-person activities to spark holiday cheer, from Christmas parades to nature hikes to a folk music performance at Jesse H. Jones Park and Nature Center.
Although we faced a challenging year, our community also celebrated many achievements. Precinct 4 partnered with Champions Municipal Utility District to complete a beautiful new roadway with an innovative drainage system. This exciting project serves as a model for the region and demonstrates what we can accomplish with strong community partners like Champions MUD. We also restored a fishing pond near the 100-Acre Wood Preserve, repaired miles of trails, and appointed a new director of the Jesse H. Jones Park and Nature Center. This beautiful park features a nature center, stunning natural areas, and a connection to the 16-mile Spring Creek Greenway. Additionally, Harris County Public Health replaced its decades-old animal shelter with a 50,000-square-foot facility. This much-needed upgrade provides additional space for Harris County’s population of homeless pets. I appreciate all the hard work and planning that went into this facility, and I look forward to watching it care for our future pets.
Jack Cagle, Commissioner
