Here’s Just A Few Projects
Hyw 225 Beautification Project
NPBA’s first large project began by working with the City of Pasadena to obtain a Federal Block Grant for a beautification project along Hwy. 225 & Richey.
1,200 oleander plants, over 100 palm trees and dozens of crepe myrtles. A variety of other plants, ornamental shrubbery and decorative stonewalls at each corner of the overpass are also being added.
The Gateway Signs is one of 14 entrances planned for various areas of the city. The city has already installed and is in the process of installing the smaller entranceway signs. The stainless steel gateway sign which is mounted near the intersection of Richey and Texas 225 will feature the city seal to represent area industry, city officials.
An estimated 163,800 motorists will view the sign daily.
An underground water irrigation system was added, which is expected to aid in the city’s water conservation efforts.
Pasadena City Council authorized more than $166,000 for the project in September of 2001. The North Pasadena Business Association paid 25 percent of the cost; the city paid 25 percent and the Texas Department of Transportation paid the remaining 50 percent.
With that success we followed up with the Texas Independence Trail Veneration Program, creating Historical District’s and Murals Depicting Texas Independence Heroes and Battles on the Petrochemical Storage Tanks along Hwy. 225. With the Help of the Economic Alliance Port Region and Commissioner Garcia and many others this project has become a reality.
