Neighborhood Grant Options – Please Vote

by on Nov.06, 2022, under Association News

Lakewood has been extremely fortunate to have received Neighborhood Empowerment Grants from the City of Baytown for the last two years. With these funds we have a new Lakewood sign to beautify our neighborhood plus sign toppers to encourage a sense of belonging within the neighborhood and exhibit pride in our subdivision.

We once again have an opportunity to apply for a City grant. The feedback we received was discussed with the City as potential grant options:  1) A neighborhood block party with inflatables, food and games, 2) Solar Speed Radar Signs, 3) Walking Path along Pipeline Right-of-Ways, and 4) Moveable Road Sign for event announcements. The City felt that only the first two options would be competitive for grant funding.

The Block Party would have games, food and entertainment for adults, teens and children and include the purchase of yard games that can be used at multiple events. Those games could also be potentially loaned out to residents.

Solar Speed Radar signs would be a pilot for the City and be located initially on two of the speed limit sign posts in Lakewood. Studies have shown that when alerted by a radar sign, speeders will slow down 80% of the time with typical average speed reductions of 10-20%. 

Please vote now by selecting one of the following options then click on ‘Vote”. Fingers crossed that it will be selected by the City for a grant.
