Blue Ribbon Task Force

 

Houston Mayor Annise Parker has created a Blue Ribbon Task Force on Building and Standards to oversee the reorganization of the responsibilities related to enforcing building ordinances in the City of Houston.

“Houston needs to have a strong Building and Standards Commission to protect homes, businesses and, most importantly, the people who live or work in these buildings,” said Mayor Parker. “This Blue Ribbon Task Force is made up of architects, engineers and lawyers. I am also especially grateful that both State Representatives Farrar and Bohac will take an active role in advising this group in the improvement of multifamily housing standards and strengthening of neighborhoods.”

Members of the Mayor’s Blue Ribbon Task Force on Building and Standards include Bea Link (Chair), Tom Allen of the City of Houston Legal Department, State Rep. Dwayne Bohac (TX-138), Maria Casanova, Terry Cheng; State Rep. Jessica Farrar (TX-148), and Jenifer Rene Pool.

The Building and Standards Commission was created in 1993 for the purpose of hearing and determining cases concerning alleged violations of ordinances relating to dangerously damaged or deteriorated buildings or improvements, or conditions caused by accumulations of refuse, vegetation, or other matter that creates breeding and living places for insects and rodents. The Mayor’s Blue Ribbon Task Force will make recommendations to reinforce the effectiveness of the Building and Standards Commission.
