City Empowerment Grant

by on Jan.10, 2022, under Association News

Great news! For the 2nd year in a row the Lakewood Civic Association (LCA) has been selected to receive an empowerment grant from the City of Baytown. Last year’s grant funded the supplies to build a 2nd entrance sign to Lakewood. This year’s grant will fund street sign toppers for the major entrance roads into the Lakewood subdivision.

The picture included in this post is just an example of a sign topper and not necessarily the one that will be installed. While the LCA asked if we could hold a contest for people to submit ideas for a graphic for the sign toppers we were told that the City will come up with 3 different designs and let us pick one. We can also decide if we want the neighborhood established date on the toppers. Once we receive the sign topper mock-ups we will post them via social media to get feedback to select the most popular one.

Lakewood Civic Association Board Recruitment

by on Jan.02, 2022, under Association News

Happy New Year Lakewood Subdivision Neighbors.

It’s time again to recruit volunteers for the Lakewood Civic Association Board of Directors. The Lakewood Civic Association (LCA) began in the 1940s to maintain Lakewood as a wonderful place to live. The LCA is a voluntary organization comprised of Lakewood residents, both homeowners and tenants, with 8 board members. Each year four Board positions come up for election.

You may ask, “What is it like to be part of the Board of Directors?” Although the purpose of the LCA is to solve community problems of common interest to the residents and property owners of the Lakewood subdivision, it is so much more than just enforcing deed restrictions. Some activities this past year include construction of the new Lakewood sign, starting the Good Neighbor Award, holding our 2nd annual Halloween Decorating contest, providing a Welcome Packet to new homeowners, supporting National Night Out, the Lakewood Garden Club, Boat Club and Lakewood Pool, having a clothing drive for local school children, and much more. Many people volunteer with LCA activities and the more volunteers the LCA has, the more that can be done.

The LCA Board typically meets once a month so it’s a small investment of time with a potential for big community impact. If you are interested in running for the LCA Board please send in your name, address and phone number by using the ‘Contacts’ tab on this website. You can also turn in a request to run for the LCA Board through the LCA Facebook site (https://www.facebook.com/LakewoodCivicAssociationBaytownTX/) or PM Randee King through Facebook. Nominations will be open until February 28th.

Thanks!

Lakewood Civic Association

Neighborhood Grants – Suggestions Requested

by on Sep.27, 2021, under Association News

The City of Baytown has a grant program to improve neighborhoods. Last year 3 grant proposals were submitted: Beautification of entrances into Lakewood with flowering plants and trees (Lakewood Garden Club), a Back to School party with school supplies (Lakewood Neighborhood Watch), and a 2nd Lakewood sign with flower bed at Lakewood Drive and Bayway Drive (Lakewood Civic Association). Suggestions for a Dog Park as well as a Park for teens and adults were also sent in but those two suggestions were deemed too expensive by the City. However we were very fortunate and excited to have received grant money for the 2nd Lakewood sign and we now have a beautiful sign thanks to the City with volunteer help from the Sea Scouts, Civic Association and neighbors.

The City is again offering grants and we are willing to turn in grant applications although other groups are welcome to apply for a grant too. Please send us suggestions on what you would like to see to help enhance Lakewood. More info on these grants can be found at: https://www.baytownengage.com/grants
