The Kingwood Service Association (KSA) meeting Aug. 2 covered topics including sports facility repairs, street repairs and budget approval.
First on the agenda was a subcommittee report about sports groups.
“Baseball registration opens next week and I am proud to report that the 8-year-olds went to the World Series … Looking forward, our crew is working field No. 2 and will be moving onto improvements needed to field No. 1, with general cleanup of all the fields after completion,” said Bruce Casto.
The KSA Parks Financial and Project Report was read and reviewed by Dee Price, who mentioned that several areas are under budget. Price explained that some of the funds are already allocated for expenses such as parks and grounds maintenance, repairs, drainage expenses, property tax, feral hog removal, janitorial expenses, and overall improvements to the area. The total annual budget for the parks expenditures is $375,575.
The Deer Ridge Park representative reported that they are working on the encroachment of trees on the street. Northpark Recreation Center’s representative said they need to repaint the gazebo. River Grove Park’s representative reported that Kingwood will host a First Responder Back to School Bash Aug. 16 from 4-7 p.m. at 800 Woodland Hills Drive.
“The event will hold a school supply drive, so be sure to bring your school supplies to the collections area,” said Price. “There will also be law-enforcement booths, a finger-printing station, soccer time with the officers, free snow cones, Chick-Fil-A, and more.”
The subcommittee reports continued by addressing recent improvements, including the tree removal and vegetation at the KSA entrances.
“These improvements look really nice and add to the appeal of the area,” said Price.
The group next reviewed the 2019 Parks budget, set to be discussed and approved at the September meeting.
Cheryl Soper reported on the Kingwood Drive entrance and the need to expand the mulch rings around the trees in the median. As for the Northpark entrance, several sprinkler heads are to be replaced. For East End, a request is being made for more alligator warning signs from Texas Parks and Wildlife and the replacement of the map.
