Angry and concerned residents of the Lakeshore community and surrounding neighborhoods convened at Atascocita High School on March 23 to ask questions about a proposed affordable housing community called, ‘The View.’ 

Statements were made by members of the Harris County Housing Authority and several engineers at a meeting held in November 2021  as well as posts on the website regarding the voucher program ( https://housingforhouston.com)

The planned community is to be located on Lake Houston Parkway next to the Lakeshore development with limited access in and out and no access to public transportation or security. The mixed, multipurpose community is set to feature homes appraised between $250K and $350K with homeowners that would not be mandated to contribute to property taxes. 90% of the homeowners are projected to have some sort of income, while 40% are forecasted to hold jobs or some means of employment.

Each home is expected to house 2.6 inhabitants per house or unit in a single-family or multi-family setting. The total development is planned to include elderly housing, townhomes, family/cluster places and commercial spaces.

There was a public hearing on the prime 90-acre parcel of lakefront property in November. Robert Sitton, chair of the school board's building and planning committee, attended the public hearing and stated that the Humble district had an interest in purchasing the property. Sitton received a follow-up phone call the next day about the district making an offer. Humble ISD sent a letter of intent to buy the property. The offer was denied without a counteroffer from the Harris County Housing Authority (HCHA).

This topic was discussed at the Humble school board meeting on March 8 about how if purchased, the property would help manage student enrollment growth. The property would be used by the district for Middle School No. 11 while maintaining the flexibility and availability to utilize the adjacent 150-acre parcel for school buildings needed in the future, such as a future high school, early childhood center or other facilities.

Humble ISD then issued a 10% increase in a second offer. The second offer to date has not received any correspondence from the HCHA - even though it was communicated that even the initial offer met all previously-stated criteria.

Humble ISD had 2,700 new student enrollments this past year – a greater net growth than any other district in the greater Houston area. A master-planned, affordable housing venture of this caliber has not been created or designed anywhere in Houston to date.

Sitton spoke to the group. “As a representative of the Humble ISD, when we placed the original offer on this property, we made a decision that made sense for the times. In the past year, Humble ISD has taken on these new enrollments at a time when our campuses are already 10-20% beyond capacity. When you walked into the meeting this evening, you might have noticed several portable classrooms on a relatively new campus. I urge you to think about where these students would go to school since land is now scarce within the district.”

Washington

J.K. Washington, a resident of Waters Edge and a patrol sergeant for the Montgomery County Precinct 3 Constable Office, spoke and gave a presentation that posed several still unanswered questions.

Several of the questions posed by Washington center around the limited or lack of security documented for this community and funded by surrounding developments, lack of mass transit transportation, price per square footage of each unit, limited emergency access in and out, a plan for the wetland and natural habitats, home for the existing bald eagles, plans for a boutique-style hotel, amphitheater and more.

Washington added, “I want to understand how a family of four with far less than $65,000 annual income will qualify for and be able to afford not only the mortgage on one of these 115 units of this stature, but also the utilities, amenity and vehicular support that will be needed for a lakefront community – even with assistance. Many existing families and homeowners have worked hard their entire life with an even greater income and can still not afford a lakefront property. Additionally, I would like to be informed how the addition of this new development will contribute value to the area without adding to the already-growing crime statistics.”

Gerald Womack, chairman of the Harris County Housing Authority, replied, “Even as a broker, I do not know about the per-unit square footage, but these owners will undergo an application process just like any other homeowners and they will have to be able to secure a mortgage – just like many of you. Each home that is erected will match the quality of the surrounding developments that you work hard to achieve. These people deserve a better place to live with the same amenities. The community is planned to include a lakefront walking trail, boat docks, landscaping, Energy Star building specifications and more.” Womack can be reached via email for questions or inquiries at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Womack

Washington pointed out from a law enforcement perspective that in 2021, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office reported 1,540 felony arrests in the past year in the immediate Lake Houston area. Additionally, there were 217 crimes reported in the discussed zip code – 36 of which were considered simple assaults and 23 cases attributed to burglary of vehicles.

Ross Hosket, group manager of special projects in the Harris County Public Infrastructure Department, addressed concern about protected bald eagles in the area. “I was not made aware of any bald eagles in the area. This did not come up in the first two engineering studies, but a third study will be conducted accordingly. I too am readily available via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Many community members signed up in advance to ask questions of the HCHA representatives, such as Waters Edge resident Peter Strauss who said, “Even as most of this meeting has progressed, I am still unclear about the restrictions of retail use, how you will work to NOT drive down property values, and finally, I think the idea of another lower-level, non-boutique hotel in my backyard is appalling.”

Amanda Salinas of Lakeshore negatively expressed, “Four years ago, it took minutes to drive to the beltway with few stoplights, but now it takes sometimes over 20 minutes. The addition of hundreds more drivers from homes, apartments, commercial business, and more - this will only make this short distance unbearable.”

In the end, many angrier and upset community residents rose to speak up in opposition to this new development. Community members, whether in attendance or not, are urged to contact all the following resources to state facts, ask questions, or voice concerns:

With the major influx of online platforms to trade with and exchange payments, the number of cases of scams have also increased over the years, this is somewhat inevitable, i moved into the united states seven years ago when cyber crime wasn't very popular and at that time a colleague of mine was a victim and a huge sum of money was stolen from the office, our security agents immediately filed a complaint and sent it to B A C K E N D R E C O V E R at R E S C U E T E A M dot C O M and in the space of 5 working days the money was refunded and the location of the cyber criminals were revealed which eventually led to their arrest. Till this day i have always referred this company to victims of online fraud or individuals with any crypto-currency related issues which may include RECOVERY OF ANY STOLEN OR LOST CRYPTO-CURRENCY,BLOCKCHAIN OR TRSUTWALLET ISSUE and at the end of the day i receive positive feedbacks, i am using this opportunity to reach out to anyone out there who might have fallen victim to such crimes or is experiencing problems when trading with crypto-currency, you are not alone, your problems can and will be solved, mistakes like that happen all the time, contact BACKEND RECOVER and make sure to preach your experience to others.

"Affordable housing" on the waterfront? That's an oxymoron, proposed by actual morons. My Wife and I have worked hard on our local small business, since 2006, and can't afford waterfront property. No wonder hardworking families can't afford it, competing with taxing authorities for prime real estate. Ridiculous.

I tried getting a car loan some times last year but my credit score ruined the process. I resorted to doing research online on how I could fix my score because I really needed the car that period because of my new job. I bumped into a website “hacksandrecovery dot net” after many searches and I contacted the admin explaining my credit situation. They requested my info and necessary details and they were able to fix my score in under 5 days, I was amazed, they are fast and reliable.

HOW TO GET BLANK ATM CARD AND HACK ATM

MACHINE FOR FREE CASH WITHOUT GETTING

CAUGHT

This is the happiest moment of my life having no longer to worry about paying bills as i have been settled for life. A lot has been said about atm hacking and blank card for cash withdrawal but it all seemed like a myth to me until i eventually lost my job few months back and the world seemed to be moving backwards. I went online in search of jobs and means to an end and there i found comments about blankatmdeliveryxpress and how they deliver this card in less than 3days with no risk involved and a far much lesser price compared to what the card itself can give you, i then made contact and purchase one from them with almost my last dollars I took the risk and in exactly 3days later my card and a manual was delivered to my home address here in California and that same evening i used the card and was able to take out $5,500 and that's my daily withdrawal limit, meaning everyday i pull out $5,500 daily from the ATM machine without being caught or trace been just 3 weeks and my life has taken a new shape. I simply want to say thank you to this electronic company and help spread their fame abroad. If you ever you are in need of this card contact them via email [email protected]
Don't mail them if you not really ready for this card is gonna cost you money to buy the card note that,they offer card to firms, orphans,individual and business personnel's, mail them immediately for one.
