2014 Year End Review


Councilmember Rex Richardson's Weekly Letter

Dear neighbor,  

Rex Richardson

I wanted to share a personal update with my 9th district family. This week, we have some great news to share. Nina and I welcomed a new addition to our family. On Saturday, December 13th, we were blessed with a healthy and beautiful baby girl, Alina Kennedy Richardson.

Nina and Alina are both recovering very well, and we are thankful for the kind words and and gestures we have received in recent days.

Secondly, we have another exciting update. I am very pleased to announce the official launch of the Imagine Houghton website, a community website dedicated to redesigning the Houghton Park Community Center. 

The original Community Center was built in 1930, updated in 1959 and expanded in 1987. For decades, it has served as the heart of the community, providing a multitude of activities for all ages to  participate in.  

While the center has done a fantastic job serving our residents, it is time for a new Houghton Park Community Center. It's time for a more advanced design that suits the needs of today. The website will serve as a conduit to strengthening the community's participation in the design for the new Center. The development of a new community center in Houghton Park is an important event.  It will be a well-deserved, valuable asset to the community for decades to come.

Please visit often for updates and to take an online survey about how you use the current Houghton Park Community Center, and what you'd like to see from the new community center. Imagine Houghton, we are listening!
