Input Requested – Opportunity to Enhance Lakewood

by on Oct.27, 2020, under Association News

The Lakewood Civic Association has the opportunity to apply for a grant to improve our subdivision. Grants range from a minimum of $500 to a maximum of $5000 and eligible projects must support neighborhood goals under one of the following categories: Beautification, Neighborhood Safety, or Connecting Neighbors. Any project will need to be supported by the LCA and neighborhood after implementation if we are successful in qualifying for a grant. Lakewood is a great place to live and we’d like your suggestions on projects (by November 10th) to make it even better.

Thank you!

Update on Mosquito Spraying in Lakewood – Oct 27, 2020

by on Oct.27, 2020, under Association News

From Asst. City Manager Kevin Troller about Mosquito spraying:

“I am providing this as an update since National Night Out; and hope you can share this info with your neighbors and the HOA. The attached maps” (link below) “show each night that we’ve sprayed since Oct. 7th . We still receive complaints from the Lakewood subdivision, still stating that our spray trucks are not coming down all the streets – which we are. We continue checking as all of our trucks are chipped; our trucks are spraying up and down the complete lengths of all streets. The months of September and October are typically bad for the neighborhoods that are closest to the bay. These months have excessively high tides that bring water into the coastal areas where the Aedes taeniorhynchus mosquito flourish. To top that, the two tropical storms that have been just to the East of us has made even more impact on our tides than normal. In many cases, these areas where these particular mosquitoes breed, in high tide pools, we rely on adulticiding (spraying) to reduce the populations which takes several treatments to reduce the populations effectively. Our mosquito division has sprayed this area 8 times in the past 20 days since NNO. Dates of spray missions are: Oct 7, 11, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 26. I hope this information is helpful.”

Mosquito Control

by on Oct.08, 2020, under Association News

During the Neighborhood Night Out (NNO) in Lakewood this week, the concern about mosquitos was raised.

The key way to reduce mosquitos around your property is for you and your neighbors to find and empty all standing water where they breed.

This message is from Kevin G. Troller, Baytown Assistant City Manager about City spraying:

“Lakewood has been sprayed 32 times this year, which is more than any other zone in the City which is typical with their proximity to the bay.  Attached are graphs of the last three spray missions which show Lakewood in general and the 200 block of Post Oak where I heard the concern during NNO.  The graphs show, as we have all our vehicles chipped, that the last 3 spray dates/times are September 29 th at 9:12pm; October 2 at 8:42pm; and October 5 at 8:39pm.  Also, knowing Lakewood’s proximity to the Baytown Nature Center, know we both spray and larvicide there.  The problem this year has been the numerous tropical storms and the high tides caused by them.  I’ll include a link to an article that might be helpful as well. Lastly, please call our Health Department main line as we log all calls, and we do respond to areas where heightened concerns are raised.  That number is: (281) 420-5384.  I hope this information is helpful to you.  We really appreciate the dialogue we’re able to have with our citizens during NNO.  Sincerely,  Kevin”

Response Requested – Bayway Drive Corridor Plan Survey

by on Oct.01, 2020, under News

The City of Baytown has launched two new engagement activities for the Bayway Drive Corridor Plan on Baytown Engage. The first is a smart, 5-10-minute survey (https://www.baytownengage.com/bayway-study/survey_tools/bayway-drive-corridor-plan-survey) that covers a range of topics, from lunch options to public art and responses are anonymous. The second new engagement activity is a Feedback Map (https://www.baytownengage.com/bayway-study/maps/feedback-map) which allows stakeholders to drop a pin to show how they currently utilize the corridor and share their ideas on how it can be improved. Please take a few minutes and complete the two activities. Thanks!
