BOMD Westbury Centerette Demolition from ev1pro.com on Vimeo.

The Westbury Centerette commercial strip center finally came down last month to make way for a new proposed development. The owner of the former Westbury Centerette site is in negotiations to bring a LA Fitness Center to this site.

“In past years, the Westbury Centerette was one of the commercial anchors at the Chimney Rock/West Bellfort intersection. Now that this demolition has occurred, the Westbury community is looking forward to regain this once vibrant commercial node into a transformed development,” states Council Member Larry Green.

“We thank Council Member Larry Green and the many residents of Westbury who came out to watch the demolition of the former Westbury Centerette,” states Becky Edmondson, President of the Westbury Civic Club.

West Airport Blvd. Rehabilitation Project

April 22, 2015 • Continue Reading »

Since coming in office, the Brays Oaks community has continually sounded off about the condition of West Airport Blvd. – particularly between Fondren Rd. and South Gessner. Every year, Council Member Green would press the Public Works and Engineering Dept. (PWE) to consider this roadway as a high priority project.

The PWE Dept. has commenced with the rehabilitation of West Airport Blvd. between Fondren Rd. and South Gessner Rd. Prior to the start of this infrastructure project, Council Member Green hosted an informational meeting at the South Gessner HPD Substation whereas representatives from the adjacent residential communities impacted by this project were invited to engage the PWE project manager as well as the project contractor to ask questions about the project.

“The District K office will continue to monitor the progress of this 6 ½ month project,” states Council Member Green. For more information about this West Airport Blvd. rehabilitation project, click the link to access the FAQs: http://www.houstontx.gov/council/k/westairport.html.

Westbury Christian School 40th Birthday Party

*Familiar faces past, present help Westbury Christian School mark 40th anniversary*

Four heads of school — Harold Wade (1988-1991), Greg Glenn (2007-2014), Robert McCloy (1991-2007) and Michael White (current) — cut giant lemon birthday cakes to serve the approximately 300 attendees — including alumni and former students; former and current board members, administrators, faculty and staff; and current students and their families — who gathered at the Westbury Christian School campus on Saturday afternoon, February 7, to celebrate the school’s 40th anniversary.

In addition to the cake and other party food, guests were treated to performances by the Wildcat band and cheerleaders, high school choir, selected theater students, and the high school ballet class. They also heard the heads of school discuss their past experiences and future vision for the school in a roundtable-style format. The school’s CATaclysm robotics team and middle school engineering class demonstrated their crafts as well. Attendees were also given the opportunity to board a bus for a tour of the WCS West Campus, the former Westland YMCA facility on Fondren being converted into the school’s Wildcat Athletic Complex.

Just prior to the cake cutting, John Greer, an elder of the Westbury Church of Christ, from which the school was spawned and with which it continues to share a physical campus and maintain a beneficial working relationship, presented White with a check for $25,000 to support the current and future work of the school and its dedication to Kingdom education.

“I want to thank all who came out to help us celebrate the 40th anniversary of Westbury Christian School,” said White, current head of school, who has worked in various classroom and administrative roles at WCS since 1997. “We had a great afternoon connecting our history with our present and future. I am blessed to work with some amazing people.”
