Houston TX -- Houston City Council Member Larry V. Green, representing Council District K, is poised to demolish an unsound, dilapidated structure on Thursday, October 8, 2015. The property scheduled for demolition is 5162 Wickview Lane, 77053 within the Briarwick subdivision of the Hiram Clarke community. The demolition is scheduled for 11:30 a.m.
Promoting public safety and enhancing the quality of life for residents are top priorities for Council Member Green. One way to accomplish this is by eliminating blighted, hazardous buildings within District K neighborhoods. In addition, this demolition is part of the District K Klean It Up/Green It Up initiative.
The Klean It Up/Green It Up campaign is an initiative focused on beautifying District K through tree plantings, community clean-ups, mini-murals, an increased focus on recycling, and elimination of blighted structures amongst other green initiatives. The campaign will utilize special events, community partnerships, and a robust social media program to help educate residents on how to make District K a healthier, greener, and more environmentally friendly place to live and raise a family.
Council Member Green states, “I’m thrilled the District K council office was able to move forward with this dangerous building site within the Briarwick subdivision. Over the years, the 5162 Wickview Lane site has detrimentally plagued this area. Through continually working with the District K council office, this community’s persistence has been heard.”
This demolition event is part of the City of Houston’s demolition initiative, which will include razing number of dangerous buildings at locations across the city. The initiative will continue until all of the designated structures have been demolished.
We invite you and the Briarwick community to join Council Member Green for this momentous event.
