September 20 from 5PM - 7PM at the Clubhouse will be our annual Dinner in the Park. Please join us for an open house with the city engineers and the contractor to talk one-on-one about the $8 million drainage improvement project along Edloe, Harper, and a portion of Auden. Harper reconstruction is expected to start in November. The project began in March and will conclude by May 2024. Grant monies totaling $1.5 million from HUD and administered by Harris County have been provided for this drainage system. Southside Place will be utilizing certificates of obligation also from the Texas Water Development Board. The city tax rate for 2023 will increase as a result of the new city debt for drainage improvements. City officials are seeking other grant opportunities for a similar drainage improvement project on Auden from Harper to Bellaire Blvd. Comments and questions are welcome at 713-668-2341 or email@example.com.

Since 2014 the Southside Place Police and Fire Departments have collected toys for the Harris County Children's Assessment Center (CAC.) This year was the best by far. On December 4, the departments delivered truckloads of donations to the CAC. But the donations continued coming in. Two weeks later, they made another delivery of not just toys, but over 100 bikes. Thank you to everyone who donated to help make the season special for many children and families.
