April 18 rain event

posted Apr 18, 2016, 11:57 AM by Westbury Civic Club President

To Westbury residents: If you have water in your home or dangerously close to your home could you please report your street and hundred block to the WCC at westburycc@sbcglobal.net. Feel free to include pictures.  Our streets are designed to hold water. But our storm system is designed to keep it out of our homes. There is a meeting April 21st at Westbury High (6PM) hosted by the City to gain input for our storm drainage project that is in the planning stages. I want each of you to know that we are not alone: I had a call before 8am from our Tx State Rep Borris MIles office. Our CM Larry Green called me as the mayor specifically wanted to know what was happening in Westbury.

Much of Houston was hard hit. Brays Bayou left its banks and the neighborhoods along Brays will be hard hit again. .

The two new detention basins along the Willow Waterhole Bayou (WWB) are full and hopefully that will save some of our homes. The WWB is now at 55.44 at Landsdowne which is higher than the April 2013 storm but has not reached the 56.7 of Memorial day. We have had as much rain, but the work the county has done seems to have provided some relief. The other basins at the WW are not full. The WCC office manager just got pictures of all the basins. We will be sharing all this information as well as anything you share here with the City and the County.

It is my belief that improving our city storm sewers will also alleviate flooding. I hope all of you will come out Thursday night.

Stay safe! Prayers for everyone watching the water rise and the rain fall.

Johnston Middle School Name Change Survey

posted Feb 18, 2016, 9:06 AM by Westbury Civic Club President   [ updated Feb 18, 2016, 9:07 AM ]

As you are most likely aware, the HISD Board of Trustees voted on February 11th to rename A. S. Johnston MS. The school has served the community at its present location since 1960. The JMS Principal Mr. Sanders created a simple 2 question Survey.

He has asked for community input. The link is: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/9M8LNPP

Editorial comment: JMS is a well-loved and well regarded community school. Not only do the zoned students from Westbury and other nearby neighborhoods attend, but JMS is a well-regarded Fine Arts magnet school that draws many students from all over the city. We are blessed in this area to have our children able to attend Parker elementary and its award winning Music magnet program, before heading on to MS at JMS and then on to WHS where the Fine Arts program was reinstated last month. People don't refer to Westbury as Jazz-bury for no reason!

White Elephant Sale Fall 2015

posted Sep 14, 2015, 1:14 PM by Westbury Civic Club President

Westbury Fall 2015
White Elephant Sale

 

The Westbury Civic Club (WCC) provides fall and spring community garage sale events to our members.  The Fall White Elephant Sale will be on Saturday, October 10, from 8AM to Noon at Westbury United Methodist Church.  The rain date is November 14.

 

Booth spaces will go on sale at 8AM on Wednesday, Sept. 9, for individual
Westbury residents ONLY.   
Booths may be purchased during normal office hours of 9AM to 1PM starting on September 10. 

 

You must be a paid current member of the Westbury Civic Club to purchase a booth.  This means you must have paid your 2015 WCC membership dues of $40.  If you have not paid your 2015 dues, you may do so at the same time that you purchase your booth space.  The booth price for individual
Westbury residents will be $20-$25.

 

Booths will go on sale to non-residents and groups/non-profit organizations on September 23, if space permits on a first come, first serve basis. The booth price for non-residents and groups is $60-65. 

 

The Westbury White Elephant Sale allows residents the opportunity to sell unwanted household items at a highly visible central location with security provided.  The WCC provides location, security, bathrooms and publicity for the sale.  The Civic Club does NOT provide tables, chairs or shade. 
Garage, Estate, yard, moving sales, etc. are not permitted at Westbury residences. 

 

So why not have fun, make money, be safe and be a good neighbor.       Plan on having a booth at the Westbury White Elephant Sale!

 

*Due to limited space and increased interest by homeowners, only individual homeowners may purchase booth space in September.  Non-residents and ALL non-profit organizations and groups (including Westbury resident run) must wait until Sept 23. Violators of this policy may not be allowed to participate in the current and/or future White Elephant Sales.  All non-profit organizations and groups must register under their organization name.  No individual may purchase a booth for a group or organization unless doing so under that organization’s name.
