For the past 19 years dedicated volunteers have been working together in the Greater Inwood Partnership (GIP) to build a better community [map] whose population is larger than many small cities.  The greater Inwood area is located in near northwest Houston and is comprised of 35 neighborhoods.

 

The Greater Inwood Partnership is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization devoted to developing, encouraging, promoting, beautifying, protecting, and unifying the greater Inwood area of Houston.  Some of our on-going projects include:

Greater Inwood community landmark project

 

A memorial fund of $3,000 was established for the Antoine Drive esplanade designer Ed Richardson 3 years ago. The Greater Inwood Partnership also received a City of Houston matching grant award. Together those funds helped create the 4-esplanade Antoine Drive Knock Out Rose Project, with most of the work done on the 500 foot esplanade directly across from the Aron Ledet Park.

 

That esplanade (click for more info), designed by famed local landscape architect Keiji Asakura, is part of a 3-phase project to create a landmark for the greater Inwood community.

 

Phase 1, the crushed granite design has been installed. Work started in 2010 and will continue in 2011 on Phase 2 which is the exquisite planting of shrubs, flowers and trees. Phase 3 is a park art project that will be designed by Lone Star College.

Arbor Day event

 

In 2010, five area schools participated in an Arbor Day event sponsored by the Greater Inwood Partnership. The schools held a contest where the students prepared an Arbor Day related project. Representatives from the Greater Inwood Partnership went to each school and judged the projects and helped the winning team plant a tree at each school. Students watered and cared for their tree.  This project is being repeated in 2011 and will become an annual event.

Community events

 

As part of our mission to educate the community, GIP hosts several community events throughout the year for members and area residents where everyone is able to meet city leaders and learn about issues that affect our community.  GIP also participates in the annual National Night Out event sponsored by the Near Northwest Management District.

Supervise community service workers

 

The Greater Inwood Partnership is an agency that provides community service hours to Harris County community service workers. GIP supervises community service workers each Saturday as they pick up litter, plant trees and maintain area esplandes and parks.

E-newsletter

 

In 2010 GIP launched an e-newsletter to keep supporters and city leaders informed about Greater Inwood Partnership activities and other community related news. Click here to sign up and/or to see past newsletters.

 

Promoting the community

 

The GIP website was expanded to promote our neighborhoods and the greater Inwood community as a great place to live. The GIP website now includes a page where all of our neighborhoods can be found together in one place to showcase all of us together as ONE strong community. The website also includes a Realtor page listing Realtors that live and/or work in the area. This directory was created to simply let homebuyers know who our local Realtors area.
