Graffiti Abatement Program
The District contracts with the Greater East End Management District to provide graffiti removal services for the district. This graffiti removal program not only covers or removes the graffiti but attempts to restore the surface to its original condition, through on site color matching of paint, power washers, or whatever it takes. This process not only removes the graffiti but removes the graffiti scar as well.
The East Aldine District (EAD) and the Harris County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) are concerned with the welfare and quality of life for the citizens that they serve and have teamed up to increase security and public safety throughout the District. The District has contracted for a team of Sheriff’s deputies to conduct Zero Tolerance Initiatives, enforce nuisance abatement laws, and to address other health and safety concerns within the community. The primary mission for these programs is to establish continuous support and cooperation within the community, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, and the East Aldine District. For more information on the programs or to address any concerns you may have please contact: Richard Cantú, Director of Services for the District or the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, Patrol District II substation, 281-446-9155. *For police emergencies contact 911.

North Houston Heights Water and Sewer Project
The East Aldine District celebrated the completion of the North Houston Heights Water and Sewer Project on March 12, 2010. The celebration included a dedication of a drinking water fountain in Gerber Park, to Community Activist, Arlene Nichols. The Chairman of the East Aldine District Board of Directors, Clyde Bailey was emcee of the event. Attendees also heard from District Executive Director, David Hawes, North Houston Heights Civic Association President, Robert Mooreland and North Houston Heights resident, Maxine Mitchell who lead the attendees in a “Toast” to Arlene who dedicated so much of her life to the district. The North Houston Heights water and sewer project was a $6,000,000 project that was completed by the District in December of 2009. The project was a joint venture which could not have been accomplished without the assistance of the great team at Harris County Public Infrastructure. The contractor was Calco, Inc and the water and sewer service will be supplied and maintained by Sunbelt.
