Houston Heights History Trying to Get Erased

Two lawyers from the Houston Heights are trying to do away with the Houston Heights historic laws that regulate the change or demolition of any historic homes.

Two homeowners in Heights East, Kathleen P. and Paul L., have taken their fight all the way to the Supreme Court, arguing that Houston’s Historic Preservation Ordinance is illegal.

Many of the residents are not happy about that, because they know a lot of developers will come in and try to demolish the homes and build these 3-4 story metricities. They usually build about 4 to 6 townhomes on each lot. Making the area more prone to flood.  This is a fact although the city has added more drainage rules in 2018-2020. 

Now some of the historic laws are a built outlandish. I know because I’ve done a lot of remodels in the Houston Heights area.

Did you know that we can’t even change the windows to the front of the house, but I can add a huge add-on to the rear of the house but I can’t change a doorknob in the front door… #GoFigure

Hi, i'm Travis Miller. I enjoy cycling and finding new trails in the innerloop area of Houston. I am also a licensed commercial pilot, and have been doing it for about a decade now. I love to try out new dishes, and then making a couple of videos about the venue. I love to blog, on the Heights & Montrose pages we have on Facebook, I cannot believe we have nearly 50,000 Heights & Montrose Fans combined. Heights Page: https://www.facebook.com/TheHoustonHeights/ Montrose Page: https://facebook.com/houstonmontrose I am a born again Christian, and truly believe in treating folks fairly and equally. I consider myself a very hard worker & dedicated to my clients. I am extremely punctual and very detailed full time realtor. I live here in the Houston Heights, which makes it very convenient for my innerloop clients, I can show a home within 5-10 minutes usually. This is so important, because buyers see a home for sale sign, and want to see the home quick. This saves my clients a great deal of money and head aches. Well guys off to sell these homes & fly these planes ... Lets grab a coffee on me =) Yours Truly, Neighborhood Real Estate Master - Travis Miller - 832-919-5635
