The Yellow Bucket Project

The Near Northwest Houston’s Weed & Seed Neighborhood Revitalization Sub-Committee has been working on revitalization, code enforcement, trash reduction, infrastructure improvements, improved housing conditions and other general neighborhood clean-up programs.

One of the latest projects is simply called the “Yellow Bucket Project”. The sub-committee was successful in getting 24 businesses to sign an agreement pledging to pick up litter around their business. To help with the effort five gallon yellow buckets and EZ pickup sticks were distributed to businesses along Antoine.

Recently driving down Antoine a committee member spotted one of the business sponsors using the yellow bucket and stick.


Thanks to the Yellow Bucket Business Sponsors!

Lone Star College Survey

In 2011, Lone Star College System (LSCS) is opening a new satellite campus, located on Victory at the corner of Vogel Road across from Inwood Forest. It will be called the Victory Center and will replace the current Carver Center. The college is very interested in offering a variety of personal enrichment and leisure programs for the general population living in close proximity to the new center especially those geared for seniors (55+).

The Near Northwest Management District and the Greater Inwood Partnership have created a joint committee to help Lone Star in the co-ordination of the Seniors & Community Participation Project.

Click here to take the survey. It only takes a few minutes.



Thanks to the generosity of RCW Nurseries we have several trees and 180 three gallon rose bushes to offer at prices that are 70% or more off retail.

The proceeds will be used to fund the planting of the Antoine Drive esplanade across from Aron Ledet Park. The planting of this esplanade is the second of three phases of what were calling the Antoine Landmark Project.

The plant sale is Saturday, March 27th at 8 A.M. on Victory Drive just east of Antoine.

Exclusively for GIP members and supporters

Email us now to set aside the plants you want. We will set yours aside the day of the sale. We only ask that you pick them up by 8:30am on March 27th. Click for the list of available plants. We will email you back to confirm your request.


Truck Needed Saturday, March 27th

The Mayors anti-gang youth will pick up litter in the field next to Kroger and sidewalks along W. Little York. The Greater Inwood Partnership needs a truck to help deliver the filled bags of litter to Aron Ledet Park on Antoine. Can you lend a little bit of your time to help between 11:30 -12:00pm? If so, please email us.

Speaking of litter... Below is a picture of all the garbage bags of litter picked up on a typical Saturday by Greater Inwood Partnership volunteers and community service workers.


We could NOT do it without you!

A special thanks to our recent 2010 members
