Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District No. 146 authorized construction of Phase III of the fence replacement project. The project is scheduled to begin March 14, 2022, starting at the south end of the project limit on James Long Parkway near Harvest Thistle Drive and progressing north along James Long Parkway toward Oyster Creek. The construction schedule and sequencing for Phase III of the fence replacement project is shown in the map below and will be updated as the project progresses.
The project includes removal of existing wood fencing, which will be replaced with brick walls utilizing the existing stone columns as part of Phase III of the replacement plan. When the fence is removed, the Contractor will erect temporary chain link construction fence to secure resident’s property. The Contractor requests impacted residents secure pets, clearly mark any private utility lines in the yard (such as irrigation, gas grill, swimming pool, etc.) and turn off the irrigation prior to demolition beginning. The Contractor will be working within the existing utility easements and landscape reserves. The District requests that affected residents remove any items attached to the fence, and items that are within five feet of the fence line. Landscaping, decorative items, etc. should be removed or tied back away from the construction area. Residents that will be directly affected by the project will receive additional notifications prior to work taking place behind their property.

Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District No. 146 (FBCMUD146) recently planted wildflower seeds along Oyster Creek at James Long Parkway. The project is a pilot program intended to enhance the natural beauty of the greenbelt while also reducing maintenance costs. The District’s vision is to expand the wildflower plantings in future years to include all portions of the Creek in our community.
Wildflowers are planted in the fall and typically begin to appear in early spring providing habitat for pollinators, beneficial insects, and wildlife. In addition to their colorful blooms and offering favorable conditions for native species, wildflowers enhance the surrounding landscape by preventing erosion, improving soil health and water quality, and reducing the impacts of drought. Once established, wildflowers also allow for reduced mowing frequencies, are less prone to disease, and require less water and fertilizer than turf grass and other common ground covers.
