Thank you to the Northside residents who went to city hall last week to speak about the concerns of our neighborhood and how proposed changes to regulations of boarding houses may impact our community. "A meeting to discuss the proposals at City Hall drew dozens of city residents, boarding house owners, former convicts and civil rights advocates. The meeting illustrated the divide between neighborhood residents worried about public safety and civil rights activists advocating for the poor and prisoners re-entering society. ...Others voiced fears about public safety, particularly residents of the Near Northside, where an 11-year-old boy was killed two years ago while he was walking home from school, and from southwest Houston, where a boarding-home fire last year displaced 29."
