Natatorium overflow parking to be alleviated
Voters overwhlemingly approved the AHISD bond on the May 2023 ballot which includes funding to significantly modify the Robbins School campus on Trafalgar. Initial plans include demolition of the unused, small school so that parking for the Natatorium and Tennis Center can be significantly increased. Overflow parking from events at the complex had adversely affected nearby streets.
The bond also includes funding to acquire vacant land to the north of the campus which will be converted into a baseball field. CHPNA continues to partner with AHISD to ensure the community will be consulted as plans take shape in 2024.
CHPNA members enjoy free swimming all year
As of April 2023, CHPNA members can enjoy complimentary admission to the new AHISD Natatorium on Trafalgar. Member households can swim in the beautiful 650,000 gallon pool as often as they like throughout the year.
It's just one more reason to be a CHPNA member in good standing. As a reminder, memberships expires every December 31st, so be sure to start or renew your household membership to be eligible.
CPS can light up your dark yard, alley or street
Residences with with poorly illuminated exterior spaces can request CPS add a supplemental flood light. The utility's All Night Security Light program is a low cost way to brighten up dark yards, alleys and streets. CPS will install a LED flood light to one of its existing poles or install a supplemental pole where desired. The fixture can be either aimed at the owner's dwelling or parallel to a roadway, but not into the roadway itself.
There are no installation or equipment costs, however a monthly charge is added to the homeowner's bill. Most residences are able to add a 100W fixture to an existing pole for as little as $9 per month plus a minor increase in energy used. There is a 3 year minimum commitment and penalty for early termination. To learn more contact the ANSL manager CPS by calling 210-760-4768 or click on the application button.
Median islands to receive new greenery
As part of the agreement CHPNA negotiated with Trammel Crow Corp, three grassy medians separating Crownhill Park residences from Jones-Maltsberger and the upcoming apartment complex will become more green at no cost to our community.
CHPNA hopes to create a tall, thick green barrier for nearby residents to buffer the increasingly busy roadway. More shrubs and trees also means less mowing which CHPNA underwrites with funds raised via membership dues.
The developer agreed to install not less than ten new shade trees and eighty large shrubs. Species are to be determined closer to the installation date in 2024. CHPNA volunteers will help irrigate the additions for their first three summers. Green thumbs will be needed - please send us a message if you can lend a hand.
