Drum roll: Staff to reveal possible new park sites to West U City Council

The West University City Council will learn about possible sites for a new neighborhood park at its meeting at 6 tonight in the Municipal Building, 3800 University Blvd.

The proposed new park would be located somewhere south of University Blvd. and between Poor Farm Ditch and Buffalo Speedway.

Council is expected to discuss the merits of the sites and give the Parks Board direction on proceeding on site selection and acquisition.

Also on the agenda is funding of a potential joint parking project with the city of Bellaire that could serve both the West University Recreation Center and Bellaire’s new Evelyn’s Park, which is expected to be completed in September at the corner of Bellaire Boulevard and Newcastle Drive. The lot would be located under the utility easement west of the railroad track that divides the two cities.

For information on the agenda, contact City Secretary Thelma Lenz, 713-662-5813.
