District Addresses Illegal Truck Parking

The District is on the look out for trucks parked illegally and
will issue citations.

It is illegal for 18-wheel tractor/trailers to park for more than two hours on any residential street in Houston. It is also illegal for the smaller "box" trucks to park for more than 24 hours on a city street. But if you've driven Meadowglen Lane,  Elmside Drive or Seagler Road, you know that illegal parking is a chronic problem that interferes with vehicular traffic. Westchase District is actively working to curtail this illegal parking. The HPD officers who routinely drive these streets, make notes of parked trucks (time and date), then return to issue parking citations. Read More

Their only option was to engage a commercial real estate broker or negotiate directly with a landlord to secure office space, leased by the square foot. Triple-net, tenant improvement allowances, access to conference space, setting up an IT infrastructure and other challenges would burden the entrepreneur who really just wanted to operate their dream business.
