Over the past two years Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District NO. 146 (the District), during its budget process, has solicited input from residents regarding potential capital improvement projects for the community. The interest in having wood and stone column fencing along boulevards replaced with brick walls throughout the community was a top priority identified by residents responding to requests for input on this matter. Based on the level of interest by the community, the District developed a Fence Replacement Plan to determine the amount of fencing owned by the District, the overall condition of District owned fencing and a phased plan to ultimately replace all wood and stone column fencing with brick walls.
In the fall of 2017 the Board of Directors approved moving forward with replacement of fencing as identified in Phase I of the District’s Fence Replacement Plan (map below). The green lines on the map below reflect the locations where existing wood and stone column fencing will be replaced with brick walls with stone columns as part of Phase I of the plan. Replacement of this fencing will directly impact approximately 80 residents along the sections identified for replacement fencing.
The District is in the process of designing the replacement brick wall and performing field surveys of each common area location where fencing will be removed and replaced with a brick wall structure. Currently the project is scheduled to bid sometime in late March with demolition of existing wood fencing and construction of new brick walls beginning in early to mid-April. The project will take approximately nine (9) months to construct.
The District will be individually communicating with each resident directly impacted by this project to discuss details of project sequencing, backyard security, specifics each impacted resident may need to address prior to the project beginning, project contacts, etc. Project progress updates and pertinent information will be posted to the website regularly.

The District is excited to begin this important community project that is expected to enhance the overall aesthetics of the community’s entryways and boulevards.
