We’re going greener! Way to go, everyone. Thanks, especially to our Recycle team who have been so faithful about putting the reminder signs out. A huge thank you to longtime resident and recycle extraordinaire Liuda Flores for making all of the signs.
Have a great weekend and make plans to join us at our final General meeting of 2013, Tuesday evening, 7-8pm at Zoes Kitchen.
We will elect board members for 2014. We are limited to 3 terms in any position. And, welcome new folks getting involved. See you all soon.
Texas celebrates National Night Out in October again this year this coming Tuesday, October 1. And, Richwood Place is having a party in the 1800 block of Norfolk from 6-8pm.
Details on the card below. You should also receive one in your mailbox by the end of the week. Plan to come out…dance…eat…meet your neighbors and enjoy a good time. Please say a big thanks to our neighborhood sponsors: Papa Mio, Cliff Helmcamp (GREENWOOD KING PROPERTIES ), Jerry Blum (HERITAGE TEXAS PROPERTIES), REPRINT!, David Houston (NEW LEAF REAL ESTATE) and the Richwood Place Civic Association.
Interloop Architecture recently posted this about the house being built at the corner of Hazard and Lexington. Check it out!
We have recently experienced an increase in illegal parking within our neighborhood. The most common infraction is illegally blocking the sidewalk. (City of Houston, APK-13 Blocking or parking on sidewalk- $40) And, many cars are parking in City of Houston “no parking” zones, out of the street, but still in the public right-of-way. There have been increased patrols by Parking Management. If you have been parking illegally, now would be a good time to find a legal place to park in your driveway or on the public street. Remember, don’t block the sidewalk. If your neighbor parks illegally, send them to this post as a gentle reminder. The reminder here will be better than any citation. Hopefully they will thank you for it!
Thank you to all of you who participated, donated time to and came out to be a part of Texas National Night Out 2012. We had a great time! Special thanks to the Bakers and Stefaniaks for hosting. You are the best! And, to Eric for letting us use his driveway as the perfect “stage” for the second year in a row. Thank you to Ruth Adams and the Board of the Richwood Place Civic Association for planning, and reaching out to our local government and US government leaders and inviting them to our community event. Thank you to US Congressman, Ted Poe, for attending our event. Thank you to Ellen Cohen’s office for your attendance as well. Thank you to HFD Fire Station 16! We love having you in our neighborhood and really appreciate you taking the time to come out to our events. Many thanks to our great sponsors, Ash Rowell and Duff Beer. You are amazing! Zoes Kitchen. Thank you for the yummy bites. Reprint!- thanks for the great work you do. Here are a few pictures from tonight’s National Night Out in Richwood Place. Thank you again to all of you who came out tonight. Our community is better because of each of you. Thank you.
The City of Houston deferred considering the request for a variance of the setback requirement for the Audi dealership along Greenbriar at Lexington until today. They are set to consider the variance request at 230 today at City Hall Annex.
If you are interested in how this development will impact our neighborhood, please attend or call let the city of Houston know your concerns.

A few of these issues include: street reconstruction, drainage, sidewalks, graffiti, installation of proper drainage of the soccer field at Chew Park, crime, ongoing issues at Hazard and Richmond, and more. Please come to the meeting and be a part of the discussion and let us know how we can work together to make Richwood Place an even better neighborhood in 2012.
