Talks of the the Town series kicks off May 9 to provide community updates, address citizens’ questions, concerns


Spring and Klein residents will soon have a new opportunity to have their questions and concerns heard by community leaders.

To foster communication in unincorporated northwest Houston, the Houston Northwest Chamber of Commerce has launched its Talks of the Town, a series of free community sessions where local leaders will provide key updates on a variety of topics as well as address citizens’ concerns and questions.

The first event is May 9 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the Forum in Cypress Creek Christian Church, located at 6823 Cypresswood Drive, Spring. This initial session will include updates from Harris County Precinct 4 Commissioner Jack Cagle, Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman, Spring ISD Superintendent Rodney Watson and Klein ISD Superintendent Bret Champion.

Following the updates, citizens can ask questions as time allows. Individuals are encouraged to email their questions to the chamber several days prior to each session so answers can be properly prepared.

“What we hope to achieve is a greater sense of community unity,” Chamber President Barbara Thomason said in an April 23 news release. “We identified that there are roughly four different communities that comprise northwest Harris County and each has its own identity. We want to go with that flow and provide these communities with news and tools they can use to improve their daily lives.”

Topics will focus on local community issues, such as road and transportation updates.

“For example, it would be helpful for those that live near Champions Drive to know about the road construction timeline in their area before it is in full swing,” said Odalys Sivils, a representative from the Harris County Precinct 4 Community Assistance Department.
