Arbor Day Tree Planting First Step in Creating Livable Center in White Oak Community
The Near Northwest Management District and Forged Products commemorated Arbor Day 2012 by planting 12 trees at the White Oak Conference Center. The new trees were planted in and around a stand of pine trees including the historic Inwood Pine to create The Grove, a wooded area of native trees that are the first step in creating the Botanical Gardens outlined in the Livable Centers Plan for the Antoine Corridor.
“The District is changing thanks to business owners like Forged Products and Treesearch Farms who have a passion for making our community a better place to live,” said Wayne Norden, President of the Near Northwest Management District. “Their commitment and vision is helping the communities along White Oak Bayou to once again become a place in which we can all be proud to live and work.”
The creation of The Grove is the first step to create a public greenspace that can be enjoyed by all Houstonians. Future additions to the complex include a demonstration garden, the addition of native grass prairie areas and hike and bike trails.
Livable Centers Plan
The Livable Centers Plan includes recommendations to improve the Antoine Corridor, rechristened the White Oak District, into a walkable mixed-use place that provides multimodal transportation options, improves environmental quality, and promotes economic development.
A copy of the Livable Centers Plan is available on the District Web Site.
