September Meeting Minutes
This meeting was called to order at 7:05 by President Ben Dolan.
We did not have any meeting minutes to approve for this meeting.
We will see if COVID – 19 numbers improve for the November 24th meeting. If the numbers haven’t improved, we will do a zoom meeting again.
Super neighborhood meeting – Kurt
Update: #1 Shepard / Durham Project is set to start. This is federal money that will redo the roads and replace the drainage between 15th and 610. It will add a bike lane, and cut down the road lanes down to three lanes. Eventually 10th to 610 will all redone. It is one of the highest crash rate roads in the area and will become much more pedestrian friendly.

Right now we are at 55% in terms of membership dues collection. Last year our total dues collected was at 51%. Only 4 new additional payments were made from the membership drive.
Block Captains – Eddie (absent)
Looking for someone to become block captain for 2 blocks.
Crime – Ben
Crime was down. We had one breaking and entering. Do not have info on what the assault was regarding. First 6 months of 2020 we reached 30 – hours for citizens on patrol which is what we need as a minimum for HPD.
Architectural Review – Ben
6 home applications currently under review.
One is a house in Section 2 off of Tannehill. The owner owns two houses next door to each other. This is the same person from last year in Section 7, who wanted 50% hardie siding to be used and got this passed. Person sent plans for 100% brick siding for the house on Tannehill. Within a week of us approving plans he had hardie siding on the side of the house. The ACC has Granted 30 days to either cure the violation or pass amendment.
Home on TC Jester. The City of Houston has taken on this case and is suing the property owner on multiple counts. This will take a while to go to court and reach final resolution.The homeowner has disregarded all letters from the city and has not allowed for any inspections. LCC has recorded a notice of non compliance with Harris County in the Real property Records.
Beautification – Carolyn
No update except for what is in the newsletter. Trees will be added sometime soon…possibly beginning of October. This is to replace the trees that were on the median on TC Jester that the city of Houston tore up when they were working on the road. They will replant trees in the area that they were taken out.
We are inquiring about new signs and magnets.
Treasurer’s Report – Beth (absent)
55% of members paid their dues. Broke even on operational costs last year.
