As I write this letter the weatherman is warning or a possible freeze here in the first few days of March. However there seem to be a few indications that spring is coming as there are a few days predicted to be in the mid 70’s.
For those that were not able to attend the January Civic Club meeting much discussion was focused around the increase in dues for membership and the natural area of the bayou, Lazybrook portion of TC Jester Park that borders our neighborhood along West TC Jester Blvd. The final vote for the annual dues passed and the new rate for 2015 has increased to $40. These dues will go towards making our community a great place to live. The proposal to cut the natural portion of the bayou did not receive enough votes to pass and will remain a natural landscape. We ask that all neighbors respect this vote outcome and work through the Lazybrook Civic Club to propose further changes to this area. I have committed to work with the City of Houston and the Parks Department to have a regimented schedule of trimming and maintenance in the area between where the power lines cross the bayou and Ella.
As we prepare for springtime I hope that many of our residents are able to participate in the many area and communities events planned including:
- Lazybrook Easter Egg Hunt to be held and Sinclair Elementary on March 29th,
- Timbergrove 5k at 11th Street park and
- Heights Kids day of Music on April 18th at Love park.
I would also like to thank Shawn Broussard for volunteering to chair the Hospitality committee. Her contribution and willingness to step forward is appreciated and we look forward to seeing her in action.
We are still in need of a Deed Restrictions Petition committee chair to lead the effort of getting the current deed restrictions updated to modern codes and building materials while preserving our Lazybrook neighborhoods character. If you are interested please contact me.
