Dear Woodshire Neighbors, Your neighborhood is changing! My name is Sulmaan Lateef and I am honored to continue being your Woodshire Civic Club President for the 2016/17 term. I am joined on the Board by the existing officer incumbents who you already know (VP Bernard Murphy, Recording Secretary Judy Budnik, Corresponding Secretary Myrna Khan, and Treasurer Anwar Khan). Edward Puente continues as our Ex-Officio Advisor to the Board role in 2016/17. As many of you know, the city is beginning a new drainage reconstruction project of our neighborhood in 2017. As a result of the Drainage Project, we are all the beneficiaries of new streets and sidewalks. The City of Houston (COH) will fund a portion of the upgrade cost, and as a result, we need to raise funds to cover the difference. The street upgrade will allow us to have decorative lighting just like our neighbor subdivision Woodside has as well as many of the neighborhoods in Bellaire and West University. Why does this matter and what will this eventually mean for you? My research shows that home values experience strong appreciation as a result of new concrete streets, sidewalks and decorative lights. The Board of Directors (BOD) and I have agreed on the following goals for Woodshire over the next 12 months:
The BOD sincerely believes that executing on these priorities are all for the betterment of the community. Please note that it would be impossible to adhere to every member request, but we will certainly try. Also, any POSITIVE CHANGE is impossible without YOUR MEMBERSHIP & SUPPORT! Please expect monthly correspondence from me via email and this website. As you already know, communication is key which is why we are pushing for transparency (our new website for example) and cooperation. Don’t delay, invest in your home, invest in your future! Join the Woodshire Civic Club today!!
