What is the Cypress

Creek Greenway?

The Cypress Creek Greenway would be a continuous trail and park system located along Cypress Creek. It would extend nearly 40 miles from Spring Creek, north of Bush Intercontinental Airport, to west of U.S. Highway 290, providing new opportunities to walk, run, and bike. Cypress Creek is an element of the Bayou Greenways Initiative, a cooperative effort to create connected open space and trails along most of the major bayous and streams in the greater Houston area. Both local governments and civic groups are working together to bring this initiative to reality. There are still significant opportunities for guiding the Cypress Creek Greenway’s development — building community support; funding its acquisition, construction, and operation; and identifying who will be in charge of the project.

How Can I Get

Involved?

The Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) and the Houston Parks Board are seeking ways to advance the Cypress Creek Greenway and have begun the Cypress Creek Greenway Case Study. A consultant team is carrying out the Case Study and is seeking your input on issues such as: •

Do you support the Cypress Creek Greenway project in concept? Why or why not?

What key features and amenities need to be part of the Greenway?

What are the high-priority and highopportunity locations along Cypress Creek to focus efforts in the near term?

What are acceptable ways to fund the Greenway project?

Who should eventually manage the project ?

There are several ways you can guide this process: Attend a meeting held by the consultant team. 2. Visit the Cypress Creek Greenway Facebook page and take our survey. 3. Talk to your neighbors and friends about the Greenway and this Case Study. The consultant team will be communicating with neighborhood and business groups in the Cypress Creek area from February through April 2013 to have a dialogue about these issues. Please come and share your thoughts! 1.

How Would this Project Benefit Me? Open space and trail projects can provide a range of meaningful benefits to communities, including: Economic: Walking and biking trails are the #1 requested amenity in master-planned communities today, and adding this amenity along the corridor will boost home prices, invigorate neighborhoods, and increase competitiveness with newer developments in the region. Recreation: The Greenway would help residents access a variety of existing and planned parks along Cypress Creek. Health: Research shows that proximity to trails leads to increased physical activity, which helps fight increased incidence of several serious diseases, improve cardiovascular health, and reduce obesity. Transportation: A connected trail system provides a safe and pleasant alternative to congested and dangerous streets and roads for traveling to destinations along the Cypress Creek corridor. Environment: In addition to the environmental benefits of alternative transportation, the project could help reduce flooding and erosion through new detention opportunities and improve water quality with appropriate plantings and reduced runoff.

KLEINWOOD April 20th Track Club Registration

for Middle and High School Athletes

The Northwest Flyers Track Club will host an orientation/registration session for all middle and high school athletes and their parents interested in joining for the 2013 season. The event will be held on Friday, April 12, from 7:00 – 8:30 PM at Cypress Creek High School, 9815 Grant Rd., Houston. The Northwest Flyers is a youth (ages 6 -18) track organization, affiliated with USA Track & Field. The club provides a full program of “track” events such as sprints, hurdles, middle distance, distance and relays, and “field” events such as long jump, triple jump, high jump, pole vault, discus, shot put and javelin. It is an excellent “off-season” program for young athletes who currently compete on their middle school or high school track teams. The club was founded 26 years ago by Olympic gold medalist Fred Newhouse to foster the development of youth track & field in the northwest Houston area. Last year, the Northwest Flyers sent 106 young athletes to compete at U.S. Junior Olympics National Championships in Baltimore, Maryland and Albuquerque, New Mexico. Visit the team website at http://www.northwestflyers.org for registration forms and information prior to the session, or contact Linette Roach at (281) 587-8442, or linette.roach@sbcglobal.net.
