Houston is currently divided into 88 Super Neighborhoods where residents of neighboring communities are encouraged to work together to identify, plan, and set priorities to address the needs and concerns of their community.
The Super Neighborhood Council serves as a forum where residents and stakeholders can discuss issues, establish priority projects for the area, and develop a Super Neighborhood Action Plan to help them meet their goals. In some cases, more than one of the Super Neighborhoods have joined together to create a stronger, more active Council.
The Super Neighborhood initiative builds on past successes and relies upon stakeholder participation and outreach. The people living in the neighborhoods themselves are best-equipped to know what their needs are, and are the most invested in seeing that those needs are met. They bring these concerns to the City and work together to have them addressed and resolved. Through this initiative, City government has established strong relationships within Houston communities.
Our Woodcrest neighborhood is part of Houston’s Super Neighborhood 22 (SN22 Washington Avenue Coalition / Memorial Park), a council which meets on the third Thursday of each month at 6:30 PM in the MECA auditorium at the Old Sixth Ward’s historic Dow School building (1900 Kane St., Houston, TX 77007).
The SN22 meeting location is within easy walking distance from METRO routes on Washington Avenue. On-street parking is also available. The corridor for SN22 extends from the western edge of downtown on the east to Loop 610 on the west, and contains many of Houston’s historic sites. Buffalo and White Oak Bayous create the north and south boundaries of the SN22 group of neighborhoods: Camp Logan, Cottage Grove, Crestwood/Glen Cove, First Ward, Magnolia Grove, Memorial-Heights, Rice Military, Sixth Ward, West End, Westwood Grove, and Woodcrest.
