if it’s only for a short time.
*Newborn babies and young children, even if they are not in your
family.

or for Peggy Goodwin’s.

Woodhaven Community Development.
Note: WCD annually presents a grant to the East Regional Library
for materials not included in the City’s Library Budget.
2016-2019 the yearly grant was for $1,000.

New and/or Old Business:

On Thursday, March 26 th Clairita received an email from Dewonna
Wagoner, Administrative Technician for the Park and Recreation
Department’s Graffiti Abatement Program that the graffiti WNA
reported on the sidewalk retaining wall behind the streetlight
located at 5555 Bridge Street had been removed.
On this same date, Clairita received an email from Ashley Hagen,
Customer Solutions Liaison for Transportation Public Works that
when evaluating WNA’s traffic signal timing concern at the
intersection of Country Club Drive and Bridge Street, the TPW
Signal Maintenance team found that the eastbound left turn
detection was malfunctioning and the staff made the necessary
repairs.

We still have two Committee Chairperson/s vacancies on our
Steering Committee – Legal and Marker Monitor for the NW
& SW corners of Boca Raton and Bridgewood Drive.

Please note that the residents @ 909 Oakmont Lane North have
cleared the old fencing and piles of black trash bags from in front
of the new fencing they have installed adjacent to the two street
barriers at the intersection of Oakland Hills Drive and Oakmont
Lane North. On behalf of WNA I am going to send a Thank You
card of appreciation to these neighbors.
Unfortunately, it appears that all efforts to have a black wrought-
iron 10’ high by 41’ wide fence installed by the ILT school may
not materialize. Meetings were conducted between Clairita and
Danny Lowery, the new Tarrant Area ILT Liaison and he was
100% supportive. To date, I have not received feedback as to
why the fencing may not be included in the major fencing project
around the school property.
Until the mandates generated by COVOD-19 are no longer in
place, WNA cannot make any plans for meetings or events.

Albertsons’ Manager, Antonio Webb and I have visited at length
about reinstating the 5% barcoded key fob discount card.
The Just4U App has generated opportunities for a WNA member’s
savings well beyond 5% and with the opening of Starbucks,
another savings has been added for customers who do not have
to travel beyond our community for a Starbucks drink and tables
with a Wi-Fi connection.

I respectfully ask each committee member to provide any and all
comments regarding what we can do via email to energize and
unite our community by keeping them informed as to what WNA
is doing to keep our neighborhood clean, beautiful, safe and
informed!!!


Virtual Meeting Closed at 6:40 PM.
Respectfully,
Clairita

WNA Steering Committee Meeting Minutes

Attendees: Clairita Porter, Karen Dixson, Keith Harrison, Jay Singleton, Shannon Broyles, Jo Powers, Vicki Zangara, Rick
Allen. Guest: Richard Ashton, Developer. (rashton@liberty42.com)
Meeting called to order: 6:10pm
Birthday Celebrations: Jay Singleton (2/10) and Marty Jackson (2/27)
Introductions: Richard Ashton presented a proposed new multi-family, 196 units, 1,2,3 bedroom community ‘behind’
932 Larkspur Lane (wooded, undeveloped vacant property north of East Regional Library). His company’s plans include
3 story walk-up, garden-style units with a 10K square foot Community Center. This development would include a tech-
training center and security cameras. Richard was asked about the possibility of a bike or walking path to connect to
Trinity Trails (may need to inquire of Oncor about using an easement). Possibly a “land-use restriction” could be built-in.
Note: a formal proposal has not been submitted to the City for this property. Mr. Ashton reached out to WNA to discuss
the proposed plans prior to applying with the City. NOTE: an email dated Wednesday March 4, 2020 from President
Porter to Richard Ashton stated that while the WNA Steering Committee appreciates Mr. Ashton reaching out to WNA
prior to speaking with the City, the WNA Steering Committee respectfully declines to support Mr. Ashton’s proposal. In a
subsequent email dated 3/23/20, Mr. Ashton asked Mrs. Porter about possibly building a gated, age restricted senior
Townhome Rental Community on the property located beneath the transmission lines north of Bridge Street adjacent to
the East Regional Library and four Apartment Home Communities. Mrs. Porter emailed three hours later to Mr. Ashton
saying that this property would require a waiver approved by the Fort Worth Planning and Development Board and City
Council, and it is likely that the waiver would not be approved.

Magnolia Crossing, Mission Hill/Verona (replacing Melissa Fuller): cell 817-496-9225; email

and in previous censuses, Woodhaven has been very under-represented.
