Wonder how stuff gets done in our neighbourhood?
A call for lovers of Houghton
Ever wonder how some key neighborhood stuff gets done, like who takes on some zoning decisions that affect the suburb from a density and traffic perspective? (See The future of Houghton) Who organizes clean ups and shares critical information on topics that affects us, such as the valuation roll and objections? The answer is a bunch of committed volunteers, but Houghton is a large suburb and the team needs some new blood.
October sees the election of a new committee and the extended suburb needs a committee larger than the current one, to spread the load. So, if you’re passionate about your suburb and willing to contribute some of your time, please contact us. (See Contact details). Specific but not exclusive skills required include legal and town planning. We look forward to meeting you. A special thank you to Ronnie Napier and Marc McIntosh from Webber Wenzel for legal guidance.
A reminder that the LHRA is a SARS registered Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) which relies solely on your donations to manage and fund activities for your benefit. To continue this good work, we look forward to your input and donations to help us to build the community and keep our suburb as a sought-after place to live.
The newsletter demonstrates how busy the past few months have been.
Wishing you a happy and safe winter.
