On Feb. 24, the Humble City Council met at the civic center to discuss progress on the Humble Senior Center and approve details regarding the S. Bender Avenue reconstruction project.
A group of seniors recently hopped on a bus to The Hilltop at Eagle Pointe in Mont Belvieu with the goal of seeing a recently-built facility in the area for features. That is, the group set out with excitement to see what might be possible to include in the Humble Senior Center facility. This facility offers a full schedule of activities, including group exercise classes, arts and crafts classes, a full gym, a game room (two pool tables, dartboard, and Scrabble game wallboard), a library and reading lounge, coffee bar, area for quilting and sewing, and a lot more.
Additionally, the council approved the agreement for services between the City of Humble and the ARKK Engineering, Inc. firm for engineering services associated with the S. Bender Avenue reconstruction project. This project was brought up in previous council meetings. It is a single phase of a total project. This phase is expected to total $182,000 of the total $1.8M total revenue.
City Manager Jason Stuebe added, “This is a project extending from West Main Street to Township. Each time it rains, the waters drain to Bender Avenue. There is a six-month design phase expected with the construction to take place over the summer months.”
To round out the meeting, council member David Pierce read community announcements. “On March 12, we have the All Out Classic Car Show at the civic center at noon. Then, on April 2 at 9 a.m., we have the Living Well Farmers Market at Schott Park. This is sure to be a crowd favorite. For additional details. Refer to humblecc.com/event-calendar/ for details.”
“Then, April 3, also at noon, we have the Houston BBQ Festival at the civic center. This is a tasting event that is sure to also be popular. We have so much going on in our city. The next listing of events is for the Charles Bender Performing Arts Center,” added Pierce.
