The Champions Community is rapidly approaching the point where its public infrastructure is at or has already exceeded its design life. New investment is required. Coupled with this fact is the fact that residents' quality of life preferences are not what they were when the community was first developed almost fifty years ago. These two factors argue strongly for a long term plan to bring the community infrastructure --underground utilities and streets as well as recreational amenities - up to a standard of improvement that will continue to make Champions a preferred community in which to live and raise a family. By undertaking this initiative today, the District 52 follows a broad trend across many local utility districts in Houston to be proactive about planning for the future and preserving value.
District 52 encompasses all 11 Champions subdivisions. District 52 has or can easily obtain the legal powers to plan, finance and maintain many types of public projects and services, from the traditional water and sewer utilities, to roads, parks, green spaces and recreational facilities, plus services like garbage and security, subject, of course to community desires and some state level approvals. Some facilities may be eligible for grants.
District 52 has started an initiative with the "Champions Community Vision -- A Plan for Action -- 2015 and Beyond". The local consulting firm of SWA Group has been hired to assist the District 52 and the Champions Community in drawing a Vision Plan. SWA is widely recognized for its expertise in vision planning. Over the next few months, SWA will be working directly with the Community on the planning work through a series of workshops.
