Powerline is Protested 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Centerpoint Energy has developed three proposals for providing power to the new Exxon-Mobil facility just south of Spring creek near I45.  A group of neighbors from High Oaks has started a committee to protest the plan that would run power lines near their homes.  You can find out more at the following web site - http://cpegrogansmillprotest.weebly.com/.  The GMVA Board will be discussing this issue at its meeting Monday, October 18th at 6:30 PM, in the Community Service building on Lake Woodlands,  and are sure that residents will be participating.

 

If you are interested in finding out more about the Exxon-Mobil development and the location of the power lines Centerpoint has a detailed map of how that area will be developed in the future at http://www.centerpointenergy.com/staticfiles/CNP/Common/SiteAssets/doc/CNP_Springwoods_Project_Public_Meeting_Boards_1-1000.pdf 

 

October Yard of the Month Winners Announced
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

October 2011 Yard of the MonthSusan and Vince Giacona built their house in Wilding Estates in 2006, but they have been residents of The Woodlands for many, many years. Their blooming color changes with the seasons, but most of the other plants are mainstays. Complimenting the Mediterranean style home are Italian Cypress trees and large tropicals, such as sego palms. Large rocks, as well as a rock waterfall, adorn the landscaping as well. Susan and Vince are proud to call The Woodlands home. They have two boys, Evan a first grader and Taylor, whom they just sent off to college.
