Background and Discussion:

The CSD Single Family New Construction Program in partnership with HCED is developing 5 different

acreage tracts which include affordable homes designated to serve families with a Low-to-Moderate

Income (LMI). R.G. Miller Engineers and Edminster, Hinshaw, Russ & Associates, Inc. d/b/a EHRA Engineering had been procured to provide Architectural & Engineering Services for the development. A third

renewal of the existing architectural and engineering services to study and design the construction

of residential developments is being requested.

 

Expected Impact:

This will allow the single-family new construction program to obtain professional architectural and

engineering services to study and design the construction of residential developments for Harris County

and approval from the General Land Office to provide funding for the project.

 

Alternative Options:

Without professional architectural and engineering services to perform the study and design the

construction of residential developments the General Land Office will not approve funding for this project

and could potentially end all the project.
