With the new H-E-B coming soon to our community, many of you have voiced concerns that the store’s shopping carts might become a nuisance in our area. We know carts from other stores have been used by residents and homeless populations to transport groceries and personal belongings, then the carts are often left to litter the community.
We are happy to report H-E-B shopping carts will be equipped with Carttronics wheels that lock if a cart leaves the store’s parking lot.
We appreciate H-E-B’s quick response on the issue and look forward to the new store. We also thank Washington Terrace Civic Association President Jason Hyman and our Super Neighborhood President Tomaro Bell for their support on the matter.
There are many critical issues in our community, so we really need your voice. We invite you to attend the next Riverside Civic Association general meeting at 6 pm. Thursday, July 11, at Good Hope Missionary Baptist Church, 3015 N. MacGregor Way. We will return to the Energy Institute High School, 3501 Southmore, beginning in August.
(The Riverside Civic Association is bounded by N. MacGregor Way, Highway 288, Blodgett and the Columbia Tap Bike Trail.)
Have a great day!
Joy Sewing, President
Riverside Civic Association

What did you miss at our July general meeting? Cupcakes! Thank you to Cupcake Kitchen Houston for donating the delicious treats for our meeting on Thurs. We’re hoping to spotlight a small business in our community each month. If you know a great one, let us know. (Carolyn McCall is our small business committee lead.)
Also, sincere thanks to guest speaker Melonie Curry with Park Houston who addressed our questions and concerns about residential permitted parking. (Veso Kossev is our parking/transportation lead.)
We’ll be launching a new and improved web site soon and have some great initiatives and programs in the works.
If you missed our Riverside cleanup a few weeks ago, Rachel Cooney-Paxton, our beautification committee lead, reported that we had 91 requests for street-number painting with 42 house numbers completed. We had 22 community volunteers, 45 students volunteers with 5 heavy-trash truck loads and 29 trash bags filled. (It was pretty amazing.)
Please join us for our next general meeting 6 pm Thurs, Aug. 9, at Energy Institute High School on Southmore.
Thank you to all of the neighbors, board members and student volunteers who came together today to help us beautify our neighborhood in the heat.
Also, a special thanks to Rachel Cooney-Paxton for coordinating RCA’s involvement in Team-Up 2 Clean-Up 3rd Ward. This was the largest ever organized cleanup in the 3rd Ward area. So awesome.
