Parking

City Hall Construction and Parking


Parking during the second phase of construction of the Civic Center to be attached to the newly completed City Hall has been modified for your safety.  There will be limited parking and no pedestrian access along South Rice Avenue between Jessamine Street and the new City Hall building.  Please park along Jessamine Street, Fifth Street or at the Bellaire Recreation Center and walk through the park to access City Hall.  Parking signs are posted around the construction zone directing you to park in the designated areas.

Thank you for your patience while we finish the Municipal Facilities Project.  

 
Conserve Water

City of Bellaire Drought Contingency Plan


The City of Bellaire has activated Stage 1 of its Drought Contingency Plan. We have entered into a period of warmer and drier weather. As such, we expect that water usage will climb.

Bellaire's surface water comes from man-made lakes, which are also used by other cities that will be affected by the warmer and drier weather. Lake levels may decrease due to heavy demand and dry conditions. Also, dry conditions can increase the chances of wildfires, which likely could create additional demands on water resources. As the demand for water increases while the water supply is under increased stress, it is imperative that all water users are aware of and take positive steps to conserve this valuable resource.

Some helpful tips for conserving water:

  • Do not water lawns daily.  Lawns typically only need about one (1) inch of water per week. (This encourages the growth of deeper roots.)
  • Do not overwater.
  • Do not allow water to run off into the street.
  • Limit washing vehicles.
  • Replace older model showerheads and faucets.
  • Wash only full loads of dishes or clothing.
  • Turn the water off while brushing teeth.
  • Keep showers under five minutes.
  • Check for and repair detectible water leaks as soon as possible.
  • Check your swimming pool to make sure it is not overfilling.
  • Change timers on sprinklers to water after midnight.
