February 11 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
We invite you to join us at this month’s Community Meeting & Mixer, at which you’ll be lovingly treated to heart-themed refreshments on us and have the opportunity to interact with the chairs of the HHA’s many valuable committees and programs.
For just one example, as most of us drive, bike, run, or stroll down Heights Boulevard at least a few times a week, it’s hard to question the appeal of this vital, central thoroughfare and its defining landmarks, all of which serve to boost both quality of life and property values in the neighborhood. But did you know that all of the beauty on the Boulevard and its resplendent esplanade exist entirely through the efforts of HHA committees (any of which would love to count on your support or participation this year)? While the Boulevard Committee sees to maintenance and fresh mulch, the Heights Garden Club handles the three flower gardens. Not to mention, TRUE NORTH, now a self-sustaining and established public-private partnership to keep fresh, ever-changing art on the esplanade for everyone’s enjoyment. And that’s just for ONE of the properties managed by your Houston Heights Association.
These committees focused on the Boulevard provide a glimpse into all of the work (often times behind the scenes) that the HHA and its countless volunteers undertake to keep the Heights a place we are all proud to call home.
If you’ve ever thought about getting involved, but didn’t know how, or didn’t think there was a place for you, stop by this month’s community meeting and chat with some of our chairs. There truly is a committee for everyone, and this meeting is designed to help you find your place.
And don’t fret if you don’t have experience. Anyone can be involved, and we always appreciate new ideas and energy. Sometimes that fresh energy is just what a committee needs to find its next major initiative, as we recently saw with the Land Use Committee. There, members who live on the east side of Houston Heights, south of White Oak, have recently shepherded a Special Minimum Lot Size Area application to the City of Houston Planning & Development Department in order to preserve the historic residential character of the neighborhood even along our edges. They are compiling their experience into a template for other areas without this protection to apply.
Beyond those stand-out examples, there are the Fun Run, Bicycle Rally, Education, Spring and Holiday Home Tour, and Business Committees, just to name a few. On February 11th, come learn what they do, how they make a difference, and how you can be a part. We assure you, we need and welcome your help.
