Westchase District Public Safety Series - Burglary Prevention

According to the Houston Police Department, a burglary is reported every 15 seconds in the United States. This crime usually, but not always, involves theft. Of all the major criminal offenses, residential burglary is the most common. That's why Westchase District vice president of public safety Don McKinney wants the District's residents and businesses to know that there are steps they can take to increase home safety. McKinney's video is the third installment in a special Public Safety Video Series that he has presented and shared. Previous topics, covering burglary of a motor vehicle and robbery prevention, can also be viewed on Westchase District's official YouTube channel.  


Drone Footage Shows Woodchase Park Taking Shape

Woodchase Park 3 4 2021
The latest aerial footage of Woodchase Park captures the progress of the park's many features.

A long pedestrian walkway, row of high-rise live oaks, performance pavilion roof and an intriguing area (future dog park) that appears in an amoeba-shaped outline are noticeable in the latest Woodchase Park drone footage filmed by D.L. Meacham, the construction firm building the park. A major milestone was reached when D.L. Meacham successfully relocated 17 high-rise oak trees from Westheimer Road medians to the park. The trees, which were planted 15 years ago on Westheimer, had outgrown their environment and are getting a new home at the park.

New Vendors Bring More Delicious Eats to the Market


Say oui! From creme brulee, mushroom spinach and steak bourguignon crepes, to classic baguette sandwiches, Arts & Crepes mobile bistro serves up freshly cooked French cuisine.

The Westchase District Farmers Market is the place to eat. If the sweet aroma of freshly made crepes doesn't lure you, then maybe other tantalizing items will from new vendors who recently joined the market.  

Arts and Crepes food truck bistro transports you to a Paris street without traveling to France. A delicious sizzle emanates from an open customer service window on this poppy orange food truck. Across the way, extraordinary Italian food from Kaylie's Trattoria makes what to buy to eat at the market an even tougher choice. Kaylie's cooks all their menu items using a mobile kitchen set up for grilled sandwiches, pasta and Bolognese-sauce made on site.
Popsicle cakes from JJ Sweets Delights.


Check out market newcomer Rise Bake Lab's oatmeal crown pies, Nutella smores bars, or chocolate covered strawberry brownies.

Although not a new face to the market, JJ Sweets Delights puts an interesting take on push-up popsicles. The hand-crafted sweets maker, baker and caterer extraordinaire introduced a cake version of this favorite treat. JJ Sweets Delights plans a new flavor every month.
