On Sept. 1, the Humble City Council members met to approve the closing of a portion of the Isaacks Road right-of-way, determine the fate of the Senior Activity Center and all its activities, and discuss local events amidst COVID-19 social distancing orders.
The main item on the docket was discussion regarding the Senior Activity Center. The building needs major repairs and air conditioning modifications that have resulted in a second appearance in this year’s budget discussions.
“As a result, all activities are planned to temporarily be held at the Humble Civic Center since these changes are being made to the building only,” said City Manager Jason Stuebe.
“I’d like to add that there are several activities currently being planned at the same caliber or better at the civic center. There has been a great deal of thought put into the activities and bus service going forward,” added Mayor Merle Aaron.
In moving all activities off site, the activities can take place in a safe environment while the board looks at next steps and how to best move forward with demolition plans within this fiscal year.
Additionally, the board approved Ordinance 20-878 for the vacating, abandonment and closure of a portion of the 60-foot Isaacks Road right-of-way to the east of Wilson Road. The plan is to convert this area into a private business road taxed by the city.
To round out the meeting, the board approved a development plat for All-Safe Storage Atascocita Road, LLC located at 511 Atascocita Road.
Councilman David Pierce closed the meeting by providing community announcements about up-and-coming events.
“Every second Friday of the month you are invited to attend Music on Main between March-October in Uptown Park from 7-9 p.m. Be sure to refer to the Facebook page at facebook.com/livemusiconmain for additional details,” he said.
