As reported yesterday, many Houstonians are outraged after signs telling photographers they could not shoot in the park and esplanades of Broadacres were posted throughout the community.

Houston Public Works responded to the public in a press release confirming that the esplanade and streets are in the public right-of-way.

The public right-of-way is the area owned by the city which includes: streets sidewalks, drainage ditches, and esplanades.

The press release stated that public ROW is available for anyone in the community for use of legal activities including personal photography.
