Some exciting landscaping news

Some exciting landscaping news

Approximately ¾ of our budget is committed to the maintenance, water and electricity for our entry markers.  There were times this year when we wondered if we would have enough funds to cover those expenses.

We currently have five members on the Landscaping Committee who have worked diligently keeping the marker areas cleared of trash and weeds and replacing dead plants.  Mike Carter and his maintenance crew weekly mow, edge, trim, etc. the markers and extended areas around them.

Unfortunately, our 2016 budget would not stretch far enough accomplish all that this committee envisioned to beautify our entry areas.

Fortunately, a rainbow recently filled the eastern sky hovering over Woodhaven. Accompanying the rainbow, was generous financial gift from Charlie Young of Madera Residential! This week we are receiving a professional landscaping upgrade valued at approximately $9,000 for our entry markers.

Since Charlie Young of Madera Residential purchased twelve apartment communities in Woodhaven, we have gratefully noted the tremendous improvement in the apartment structures, paving, and landscaping. We have been amazed at the difference the landscaping has made at the entrances of these apartment communities.  WNA reached out to Mr. Young for assistance in making our vision for the Woodhaven entry markers become a reality.

Watch for changes happening in the following areas:
Entry Marker #1 – Randol Mill/Highwoods Trail

Entry Marker #2 – Randol Mill/Woodhaven Blvd

Entry Marker #3 and #4 – Highwoods Trail/Boca Raton (north and south sides of street)

Entry Marker #5 – Bridgewood Drive/Boca Raton. Landscaping will begin when lighting is repaired.

Please join WNA in thanking Charlie Young and his Regional Portfolio Director, Cayce Coon, for all they have done in financing and overseeing the proposal for this beautification project.

 

Possible charter school in Woodhaven

Possible charter school in Woodhaven

Councilman Moon confirmed the International Leadership of Texas free Charter School project has received a green light and that the construction of the $25 million project in Woodhaven is moving forward much faster than anticipated.  There are a couple of minor issues that need to be resolved but they pose no problem in slowing the process.  Since this site is platted and has utility lines, it is projected that the school will open for the 2017-18 school year. 

International Leadership of Texas free Charter School Mission Statement:
Mission at the International Leadership of Texas is to prepare students for exceptional leadership roles in the international community by emphasizing servant leadership, mastering of English, Spanish, and Chinese Languages, and strengthening the body, mind, and character.

Note: The Driveline Instruction Drop-Off and Pick-Up videos address some of the traffic concerns that have been voiced. These drivelines are located on the grounds of the school.

Councilman Moon shared that the contractor continues to work with Fort Worth Transportation Public Works to study traffic control plans/patterns that will offset major problems and concerns. Police will be hired for assistance with the staggered arrival and departure schedules. There will also be about 20 additional people to help with traffic flow as well as the use of technology to alert teachers of arrival and dismissal time of their respective students.
