A new affordable housing development is coming to Kingwood. Zach Cavender, senior vice president of the Mark-Dana Corporation, provided the Kingwood Super Neighborhood Council with a slide presentation in January about “West Fork Place,” a proposed real estate development of affordable housing for senior residents.  The site is located just west of Highway 59/69 and south of the Kingwood Medical Center.

“This is an affordable development for seniors, restricted to 55 and older,” Cavender said as he displayed a map of an undeveloped land area at the southwest end of Kingwood Place Drive. It is planned to include a three-story building containing approximately 120 apartment units. It will be wheelchair accessible and include a swimming pool, club room with kitchen and media area, community laundry facilities, a fitness room and an equipped business center. Various tenant services will be provided to its residents.

“The building and its provisioning will all be of class A construction including 100% masonry exteriors that include brick, cultured stone, stucco and/or Hardi Plank,” Cavender said. The building will be fully “sprinkled” to meet fire safety standards and will use energy efficient materials and insulation throughout. The apartments will include Energy Star appliances, ceiling fans, smoke detectors, laundry connections, wall-to-wall plush carpeting, electric ranges, self-cleaning ovens, frost free refrigerators, dishwashers and hot water heaters.

Each unit will be wired for phone, cable and data and will have 9-foot ceilings.

Cavender pointed out West Fork Place will have a positive economic impact on the Kingwood area. He highlighted an example with a similar project located in Galveston County.

“Affordable Housing is a tax credit program that is a public/private partnership. In return for incentives, the developer provides affordable rents restricted for 35 years, resident services including credit counseling, financial planning assistance, computer training, exercise classes and business centers. It creates a quality housing option for a segment of renters that is difficult for the market to supply,” he said.

Tenant incomes are based on the Area Median Family Income and adjusted by family size. He explained the AMFI for a family of four for Montgomery County is approximately $79,200; 60% of the AMFI is $47,520, 50% is $39,600 and 30% is $23,760.

“Rent limits are determined by a formula assuming that a tenant should not spend more than 30% of their income on housing costs,” Cavender said.

Cavender closed his presentation by pointing out these kinds of projects have long-term compliance requirements including annual file audits and periodic site inspections including both state and federal oversight for up to 40 years. In addition, there are specific tenant screening requirements. They include full criminal background checks, credit checks, employment or source of income verification, recertified every year. The tenant income must be at least 2.5 times the rent in order to qualify. Cavender pointed out there is a zero-tolerance policy for criminal activity.

In other business:

Humble ISD Board Member Marques Holmes announced there will be a bond issue referendum included in the upcoming May 7 Humble ISD school board election. Once the school board completes defining the specific projects in the estimated $750 million bond proposal, Holmes plans to present it in detail to the council at its Feb. meeting.

Roycelyn Bastian of Lone Star College, Kingwood announced LSC redistricting is now underway. “The board must redivide the district into the appropriate number of trustee districts if the census data indicates the population of the most populous district exceeds the population of the least populous district by more than 10 percent. This situation occurred in the recent national census,” said Bastian. Kingwood College is currently in District 8 for trustee election purposes. District 8 community forums are now scheduled to be held April 6 and May 3 on the Kingwood Campus to explain the redistricting process. Since LSC holds its trustee elections in November of even-numbered years, the date required to complete redistricting is by Aug. 10. Full information is available at lonestar.edu/redistricting.

The next Kingwood Super Neighborhood Council Meeting is currently scheduled to be held Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. Due to the continuing COVID-19 threat, the meeting will be conducted as a Zoom teleconference.

There aren’t enough words to describe or explain my wonderful experience with CYBERCREDITGURU a US based Russian h a c k e r s. In 2018, I had 205 BTC in my blockchain wallet but out of my carelessness I misplaced my password and recovery phrase. I really don’t know how to go about it until early this year, I came across a 5star review about them in a forum online by one Mrs. Kimberly and I reached out to them via text: +1 (650) 439 0624 and CYBERCREDITGURU (AT) GMAIL DOT COM. They responded immediately and helped recovered my lost BTC wallet within 4 days. Thanks to Team CyberGuru. I also had an extremely poor credit report of 403 with derogatory; late payment, repossession, collections and foreclosure. They also cleared all negative items from my credit report and upgraded my FICO score to 810 across all three major bureaus. Now with no doubts I can say 2022 is a great year for me as I am a proud owner of a new house and a car. All thanks to CYBERCREDITGURU once again. They are my messiah! I confidently recommend them to you.

FixMyCredit has been really great to work with. In a few weeks they have helped me remove negative items from my credit report and get my credit score back in good standing. Their customer service was super helpful and friendly which was really nice considering that is hard to come by these days. Now that my credit is good, I will be able to buy my first home. Couldn’t be more excited. I also learned so much about credit management and credit repair. It has been a really good learning experience. I would definitely recommend Fixmycredit @ Writeme d0t com to anyone looking to get their credit back on track.

I want to testify about Dark Web blank atm cards which can withdraw money from any atm machines around the world. I was very poor before and have no job. I saw so much testimony about how Dark Web hackers send them the atm blank card and use it to collect money in any atm machine and become rich.
Email : carolblankatmcard@gmail.com

Hangout : carolblankatmcard@gmail.com

What'sApp : +393512615163

They also sent me the blank atm card. I have used it to get 90,000 dollars. withdraw the maximum of 5,000 USD daily. The Dark Web is giving out cards just to help the poor. Hack and take money directly from any atm machine vault with the use of an atm programmed card which runs in automatic mode.
