FROM DANICA: For the 11th consecutive year, teachers in Cy-Fair ISD will see a pay increase in 2022-23. Substitutes and hourly workers will also take home larger paychecks, but considering ination rates and added burdens on sta since the start of the pandemic, many are questioning whether this is enough to keep the district fully staed moving forward.

Meanwhile, Cagle said he would have preferred additional trails be funded by the county’s parks budget. “While Commissioner [Cagle] is a major proponent of hike-and-bike trails and has considerably expanded their availability throughout Precinct 4, he voted against this measure because he believes it sets a bad precedent of diverting toll road money to projects not originally envisioned when toll roads were first pitched to Harris County voters,” said Joe Stinebaker, Precinct 4 director of communications, in an email May 17.

According to the HCTRA’s planning documents, most of the trails will be placed adjacent to existing toll roads, providing access to existing parks, public transit hubs, schools and neighborhoods. A timeline for the project has not yet been announced. “Tollways to Trailways make[s] the county healthier and more resilient by expanding healthy mobility choices, creating more local green spaces, and giving people transporta- tion options that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve regional air quality,” HCTRA’s plan reads.

Dierker’s Champs Program Director run by the Cy-Fair High School baseball team in February and Sheri Lee said many children who want to play baseball cannot aord to locally. This disparity led Cy-Hope to launch the program more than 10 years ago to teach students from Title I schools how to play the game, how to work with a team and be graceful in victory or defeat. “Normally they wouldn’t have anything to do, so this way, it’s giving them something healthy and keeping them o the street and giving them a purpose and learning how to play as a

Local nonprot Cy-Hope closed on the purchase of a 7-acre prop- erty near Campbell Middle School on May 13 with plans to expand Dierker’s Champs, a program that gives elementary and middle school students from low-income families the opportunity to play baseball in a positive environment. This group previously played behind Cy-Fair High School, but that space is now unusable due to the construction of new district facilities, according to Cy-Hope Executive Director Lynda Dierker. The nonprot purchased surplus land from Cy-Fair ISD and anticipates having the new elds ready for the 2023 season. “Once we build these elds, we feel like this will be an opportunity for us to grow and for us to do so much more because we will not be limited [to] Saturdays,” she said.

team,” she said. Cy-Hope’s partnership with the school district has allowed it to keep track of how student-athletes are performing, allowing the teams to reward good behavior and grades. In fact, Dierker’s Champs coaches are teachers from these schools. “The teachers all know, and they’re working with [the students], so to me that’s the key,” Lee said. “They’re so passionate, and they care so much about the kids, whereas if you get an outsider, ... they just don’t have the same passion for these kids like the teachers do in the schools.” Before the pandemic, 375 students

participated across 18 teams, but Lee said she already expects to exceed those numbers in 2023 and looks forward to seeing the league grow. For Dierker’s Champs namesake Larry Dierker—former Houston Astros pitcher, announcer and manager—the program is a safe place for children to learn a skill and have fun. “The population of the teams that we serve now are all kids that have almost no experience,” he said. “What I’d like to be able to do is get this program going strong enough that we can compete with the other kids in the other leagues because we don’t have any shortage of athletes.”

City officials conducted an online community survey in June as part of the study. $71,500 LOCAL HIGHLIGHTS HARRIS COUNTY District Attorney Kim Ogg introduced a billboard campaign promoting the safe storage of firearms June 3. Twenty-five billboards across North Houston encourage residents to secure their guns in English and Spanish. The billboards were donated by Clear Channel Outdoor with some funding for the campaign coming from district attorney’s office criminal forfeiture revenues. JERSEY VILLAGE At its June 20 meeting, the Jersey Village City Council unanimously approved raising the residential homestead exemption from 14% to 20% of the appraised value. City Manager Austin Bleess said while the city’s average home value rose nearly 10% year over year, this move will cost the city about $294,000 in property tax revenue based on estimations from the Harris County Appraisal District. Mayor Bobby Warren said sales tax revenue could help make up for this loss. The homestead exemption for residents age 65 and older will remain at $100,000. “ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HAS BEEN A BIG HELP FOR US OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS IS THE FACT THAT, THANKS TO A LOT OF OUR ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT EFFORTS, OUR SALES TAX REVENUES HAVE INCREASED SUBSTANTIALLY.” BOBBY WARREN, JERSEY VILLAGE MAYOR

assistant director of operations for HCFCD. Phase 3 is backed by $20 million in bond funding from the HCFCD’s $2.5 billion bond approved by voters in 2018, and it will focus on tightening up the engineering details and investi- gating sources of funding for the project. “We will leave no stone unturned when it comes to funding,” Elmer said. “We’ll investigate funding at all levels. I’m not going to be able to say today whether this is something [the Federal Emergency Management Agency would] say is right up [its] alley, but it’s something we’re looking at in Phase 3.” With the size and scale of the tunnel system, county funding would likely be needed to supplement state and federal funding. According to Elmer, one big advantage of a tunnel system is the reduced land acquisition when compared to traditional methods of flood management. The next public comment period will close Sept. 30.

HARRIS COUNTY Findings from an ongoing Harris County Flood Control District feasibility study estimate a $30 billion price tag for a potential countywide stormwa- ter conveyance tunnel system. Funded by a $2.5 million grant from the U.S. Depart- ment of Housing and Urban Development, Phase 2 of the district’s feasibility study identified eight tunnel align- ments that would mostly follow existing channels. HCFCD officials presented Phase 2 of the study at a virtual community engagement meeting June 16. The study determined 11 of the county’s 23 major watersheds would receive the greatest benefit from a tunnel system, taking into account factors such as popu- lation density and concentrated areas known as “damage centers” where homes and businesses repeatedly flood. The next phase of the study is set to begin in early 2023 and could last about three years, according to Scott Elmer,

Harris County commissioners call for youth gun violence data, unanimously create safe schools commission

2 candidates remain in search for elections administrator

BY RACHEL CARLTON

BY EMILY LINCKE

HARRIS COUNTY Two can- didates are under consideration for the county’s elections admin- istrator position, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo announced at the June 15 meeting of the Harris County Election Commission. Both candidates are from out of state, so neither would be able to start until Aug. 1, according to Hidalgo. By law, Chief Director of Voting Beth Stevens will serve as interim elections administrator once current Elections Administra- tor Isabel Longoria exits on July 1. Hidalgo said June 15 that the commission was aiming to meet for the second time the following week and could announce the final selection at the conclusion of that meeting, but the meeting had not been scheduled as of press time.

“Our hands are tied by laws that prevent us from acting on the purchase, sale or storage of guns, but perhaps there’s something else we can do. ... [Maybe] there’s data that

Developers diversifying housing products with new townhome oerings in Cypress communities

options master-planned communities oer, he said. Pricing is comparable to traditional single-family homes in these communities, starting at the mid-$400,000s in Towne Lake and the high-$400,000s in Bridgeland. “The customer is kind of the one pushing this ask of us: ‘I want to be a part of all that, but I still want that lock-and-leave product, minimal maintenance to where I can have the luxurious living, the open living lifestyle that I want in my house, but I want to be able to kind of still go there, enjoy the amenities to build, enjoy the retail,’” DePasquale said. Homeowners association fees cover yard maintenance and exterior repairs. DePasquale said residents may also feel an added level of security as they tend to be more connected with their neighbors. Buyers also do not have to sacrice open-concept, luxurious living, he said. Floor plans range from 1,700-2,300 square feet with three to four bedrooms, two to three full bathrooms, and two-car garages that face either the front or the rear, depending on the plan. Beazer Homes will also have a series of duets in Towne Lake’s Northshore, which also oer two single-family homes under one roof. Jennifer Symons, Caldwell Cos. vice president of marketing, said Beazer has developed the homes with soundproof and reproof barriers between units.

More than 38,000 new housing units are projected to be added within Cy-Fair ISD’s boundaries in the next decade, according to demographers at Population and Survey Analysts. About 50% of those planned units are classied as single-family homes. As homebuyers’ needs and desires change, local developers said single-family homes may start to look a little dierent. Two of the biggest housing developers in Cypress announced plans this spring for new townhomes. Caldwell Cos. has already started construction on Northshore in Towne Lake, and The Howard Hughes Corp. announced June 16 presales will begin soon on the rst residential product in Bridgeland Central—the 925-acre mixed-use development planned along the Grand Parkway. Dallas-based homebuilder Highland Homes is contributing to both proj- ects. John DePasquale, vice president of sales for Highland Homes’ Houston division, said after testing the oor plan designs in the Dallas-Fort Worth market, the company chose Cypress as its target for an entry into the Houston market and will be building in both Towne Lake and Bridgeland. This concept provides a new option for empty nesters or young profes- sionals interested in low-mainte- nance living while being able to take advantage of the amenities and retail

“I think Towne Lake is just more about oering something for every- one,” Symons said. “We’ve always partnered with a wide variety of builders so that whether you’re a young family just starting out new to homeownership or you’re looking to downsize or someone’s looking for a custom home on the water, there truly is something for everyone.” Millennials—who range in age from about 25 to 40—have made up the larg- est segment of homebuyers in Bridge- land in recent years, according to Jim Carman, Houston region president for

The Howard Hughes Corp. He said he believes buyers in this demographic are looking for lower-maintenance living as well as traditional neighbor- hood amenities, quality schools, open spaces and walkability. “It’s a wide demographic that’s looking for those townhomes—it’s empty nesters; it’s young profession- als, young families,” he said. “These townhomes have very attainable price points. They have a lock-and- leave lifestyle that appeals to partic- ularly the empty nesters. And so we expect to see that trend continue.”
