Original Post:

Jaycee Park is in the great shape that it is in, in large part, because of your volunteer efforts and donations.  Thank you!

The recent work done by Moss Landscaping to ensure the health and well being of the crepe myrtles was possible because of your donations to Houston Parks Board for Jaycee Park.

The January Seamist tree trimming was done by a dedicated group of volunteers:  Jeff Wayt, Forrest Andrews, Sam Dijk, Dave Morford, Lorraine Cherry, Paige & Chris Ochterbeck and Pete Davies.  There were others too and I apologize for not getting your names.  We were supervised by Barry Ward of Trees for Houston who also brought two volunteers.  Check out Trees for Houston online for info about their classes, projects, volunteer & donation opportunities.

Regarding the Capital Improvement Project (CIP) for the park, Parks Program Manager Lisa Johnson met with CM Cohen and representatives from Super Neighborhood Council 14 in February and a plan was endorsed to improve park lighting by prioritizing the ball field lighting including the security lights.  If any funds remain following completion of these ball field lighting improvements, other improvements to the park will be considered.  When more specific information and plans are available, they will be on Super Neighborhood Council 14’s website, www.snc-14.org.
