The votes are in, and green is the winner! Due to regulations from the City, the design had to be tweaked to fit their size requirements. We are very pleased with the new design, and hope you are, too! Feel free to comment here or contact a CCA board member if you have additional feedback. Our application was submitted to the Matching Grant program by the November 2nd deadline. If we win, we will likely still need to raise some money to fund the sign toppers. More on that to come, but for now, keep your fingers crossed!
Last week at the CCA Fall Membership Meeting, the membership voted to move forward designing Cherryhurst street sign toppers and applying for the City's matching grant money from the Department of Neighborhoods. Thank you, EJ Farhood, for submitting the proposed design! Below please find:
1) an image showing the scale of the proposed design,
2) a map of the proposed locations for the street sign toppers, and
3) a survey to select your favorite color of the proposed design.
Please feel free to contact a CCA board member or to submit a comment here should you have other feedback.
Calling all graphic artists and doodlers! The Cherryhurst Civic Association will be applying for the Department of Neighborhood’s Matching Grant Program for street sign toppers. We will display and vote on all entries at National Night Out on October 2. We need volunteers to get this application completed and approvals from the City before the application due date (November 2, 2018). Please contact a board member should you want to help. Some examples of nearby neighborhoods with streets sign toppers are pictured below. We look forward to seeing the proposed designs and bringing neighborhood pride to Cherryhurst!

At our 2018 Winter Membership Meeting, we were fortunate to have 2 speakers present to our membership. First, Debra Bach, who received a Masters in Preservation, did her thesis on our own Cherryhurst and its potential as a City of Houston Historic District. Following Debra, Lorelei Willett from the City of Houston Planning & Development Department's Historic Preservation Office presented on how a neighborhood becomes a historic district. Below are both presentations.
