Heritage Park Closure

Harris County MUD 217 is excited to announce the Heritage Village Park improvement project. The Board decided to undertake this project to add additional security and protection for park visitors, as well as improving access and enhancing the beauty of our community. This project is expected to begin on August 30, 2021, and will continue through February 2022.

During construction, the park will remain closed. Please do not access the park during this time and observe all posted signs for your safety.

Monthly construction updates will be provided on the District’s website and will also be highlighted in the upcoming Fall 2021 newsletter.

Park improvements will include:

  • Removal of the existing chain link fence around the perimeter of the Park
  • Installation of a precast concrete fence around the perimeter of the Park
  • Removal of some trees that interfere with the fence line
  • Installation of new ramps and walkways to improve access

If you have any questions about this project or other MUD services, please contact us and we will respond to you as soon as we can.

Thank you for your patience as we work to improve our community!

DO NOT block our neighborhood streets!

HCMUD 217 has recently seen an increase in parked cars on our streets. This prevents WCA’s trucks from passing down the streets to collect trash. In addition, the parked cars may block emergency vehicles such as fire trucks and ambulances from reaching your home in an emergency. Please DO NOT block our neighborhood streets!

If you see cars blocking the road, contact Sgt. Jeff McGowen, at
mud217sec@gmail.com.

Trash collection is Monday and Thursday. For more information visit:
Garbage Collection.

Hurricane Season Prep 2021

Even though we just came through a historic freeze, hurricane season is now upon us. Gulf coast residents are no strangers to devastating hurricanes and we know how to prepare. 

1. Make a Plan

Create a written evacuation plan complete with a list of important phone numbers and at least two evacuation routes in case you must leave. make sure you keep your gas tanks FULL in case you get stuck in heavy traffic.

2. Gather Disaster Supplies

Have a disaster kit ready. A good rule of thumb is to have enough non-perishable food, water, medicine, and masks to last each person in your family at least a week. Here again, it is vital to keep your vehicles full of gas, even if you can no longer evacuate. 

3. Review Your Documents

Check your insurance policy and renew your flood insurance. Most flood insurance policies take at least 30 days to become effective. Don’t get caught without the coverage you need!

4. Stay Informed 

NOAA’s National Hurricane Center and Central Pacific Hurricane Center are your official sources for hurricane forecasts and the issuance of hurricane watches and warnings.  You may also wish to check these local resources for additional information:
