A virtual community meeting was held on December 2, 2020 to gather feedback on potential features. You can view a copy of the presentation here and a video of the meeting here.
Quality recreational opportunities are essential to the health and well-being of every community. Precinct One is partnering with the Harris County Flood Control District to provide pedestrian trails and other features within a recently completed 75 acres detention basin on Hunting Bayou at Homestead Road and the I-610 North Loop. A small trail would also connect surrounding neighborhoods just north of the detention basin to this trail network.
While the Homestead Detention Basin is primarily designed to mitigate flooding along Hunting Bayou, the site can also provide much needed natural greenspace to a historically underserved neighborhood. The addition of trails can provide healthy recreational opportunities for people of all ages.
