Nottingham West Civic Club
a Deed Restricted Community
Next Quarterly Meeting: October 11 2017
Welcome to Nottingham West!
Established in 1964, Nottingham West is a deed restricted community in west Houston, Texas. Our neighborhood consists of 349 single-family homes, a mix of both original and new construction. Nottingham West is a part of the Spring Branch Independent School District, and is zoned to Wilchester Elementary, Spring Forest Middle School, and Stratford High School. We are within walking distance to Harris County's Nottingham Park (with splash pad!), and minutes from some of the finest dining and shopping in Houston, including favorites like Memorial City Mall and the Taste of Texas. With the Energy Corridor and several renowned hospitals nearby, our community is a hotspot for real estate activity. Whether you are a current resident looking for key information, or a future Nottingham West
homeowner, we are here to help.

Nottingham Task Force Update
The Nottingham Task Force (NTF) is working on behalf of area residents to replace the current City of Houston Public Works and Engineering (PWE) plan for the Kirkwood reconstruction project with the Nottingham Task Force Plan. The NTF Plan replaces the on-street bike lanes with eight-foot dual use pedestrian/bike pathways located behind the curb, eliminates all of the left turn lanes except for the Kimberley and Memorial intersections, and preserves our median and trees. NTF heard that over 800 responses were received by PWE following the July 27th meeting with Councilman Greg Travis and believes that responses overwhelmingly support the Nottingham Task Force Plan and will greatly influence the final design for Kirkwood.
The Task Force met with several Council Members, BikeHouston, Memorial Super Neighborhood 16 and Kirkwood neighbors south of Memorial to garner additional support for our opposition to the PWE plans. An agreement has been reached with BikeHouston and NTF is optimistic this will resolve the bike lane issue. The Nottingham Task Force expects to meet with the City shortly and is seeking flexibility from the PWE to eliminate plans for left turn lanes except at Kimberley and Memorial and to accept the joint agreement with BikeHouston.
The Nottingham Task Force will keep residents updated on discussions and any decisions. Many steps remain in the process to modify this project to an acceptable Kirkwood design. The Task Force may need your help again as we move forward with our fight for the neighborhood.

Terry Hershey Park Partially Closed for Emergency Repairs
The Harris County Flood Control District (HCFCD) will close Terry Hershey Park from Kirkwood Rd. to Beltway 8/Sam Houston Tollway, on the north side of Buffalo Bayou, effectively immediately to complete an emergency repair project.
To minimize risks to bike riders and pedestrians, Terry Hershey Park will be partially closed for the duration of HCFCD's construction project. Other areas of Terry Hershey Park remain open. Specifically, the north side of Buffalo Bayou between Kirkwood Dr. and Highway 6, and the entire park on the south side of Buffalo Bayou remain open from Beltway 8 to Highway 6.
Closure in the repair area is effective immediately and will last until bank stabilization repairs are complete. Harris County Constables will be patrolling the closed area and issuing citations to trespassers. For your own safety, please completely avoid this area of Terry Hershey Park.
