    Houston TranStar Cautions Commuters: When Stranded, Stay in Your Car
    A flat on the freeway. Extreme temperatures overheating your engine. A fender bender causing you to pull to the side of the road. The possibilities are as many as parts of a car, and all unplanned. However, if you find yourself stranded on Houston-area roadways, you can have a plan for staying safe!

Growing.

This function of the District has helped support and promote over $400 million in new multi-family, office, and retail development in the area. New luxury apartments that have been completed or are under construction will bring over 3,000 new residents, mostly young professionals who will add even more vitality to the restaurant and retail sectors of the Montrose community.

    Montrose Management District - Growing.
    Creation of illustrated brochures given to developers to provide them with useful information about the District, trade area population, and demographics; the purposes, history, committee structure, and Service, Improvement, and Assessment Plan of the District; numbers and types of businesses; comparison of retail demand and supply; and District strengths and advantages.

Safer.

Security is more than maintaining an area free of crime. It also means the ability to invest, live, and work comfortably. The District has developed strategies and actions to enhance the level of public safety, security, and maintenance, and regularly monitors and evaluates the results of programs and projects, while recommending steps for continuous improvement.

    Montrose Management District - Safer.
    A "work-smarter" philosophy police patrol initiative which utilizes veteran Houston Police officers assigned to the Differential Response Team. In addition to being experienced, these officers are specially trained problem solvers. They know the community, its character, and its challenges. More importantly, they know and care for the people who live, work in, and enjoy Montrose.

Greener.

These projects provide the foundation for enhancing how the District looks and works while also providing a sense of place, a source of community pride, and dramatically impact the decisions of potential investors. During the first ten years plans were developed for projects related to beautification, landscaping, perimeter and interior markers, HWY 59 bridge lighting, banners, flags, custom signage, and monuments. The District also advocates concepts to improve internal mobility and regional access including a Special Parking Area (SPA).

    Montrose Management District - Greener.
    Completion of a comprehensive study of mobility, parking, and drainage infrastructure throughout the District and presented study results to the Houston city council committee on infrastructure, transportation, and technology to focus its attention on District infrastructure needs.
