Greenspoint Chamber forum views Management Districts

By Gilbert Hoffman
North Houston Greenspoint Chamber members heard a thorough status report of the 3 management districts functioning in the area, and the redevelopment district, at the Chamber’s monthly luncheon held at the Airport Marriott last Thursday.
Humor was mixed with fact, as Chamber president Reggie Gray presented State Representative Kevin Bailey with a mock resolution honoring him for his work in establishing the legislation that formed the districts. In addition, Bailey received a real award for work in forming the Greater Greenspoint, East Aldine, and Airline Districts, and the Greater Greenspoint Redevelopment Authority.
These are taxing bodies, that provide additional services to residents and businesses in their service areas.
Accomplishments, and future projects, were reviewed by Jack Drake for the Greenspoint District, David Hawes for the East Aldine District, Teri Koerth for the Airline District, and Sally Bradford for the redevelopment agency. Each agency is working to provide nuisance abatement, grafitti removal, economic development, water and sewer improvements, additional security and safety, parks and recreation facilities, flood control, new roadways to improve mobility, new signage and artwork, and more. All the organizations recently joined in United Districts of North Houston,along with Greater Northside Management District, to be more effective and coordinate their work.
