As a member of the Woodlands Neighborhood Improvement District’s new Planning Committee and someone who has attended almost all the WNID meetings, including the meeting this past Thursday, I am compelled to clarify much of the misinformation and affirm the correct information as stated by the comments on this website.

Ask the questions, but allow us to explain the answers.

Karen and Doug Long and the rest of us members on the Planning Committee are dedicated to mending the broken fences of communication that was presented by the former WNID committee. Taylor White is the new chairperson and is determined to get the correct facts out there in a civil, proper, and professional polite manner.

The Planning Committee wants to open up the lines of communication and find out what the residents of the Woodlands want to see improved. We will be making phone calls and will be going door to door to help accomplish this. We are volunteers that will being spending time ( we are not retired, we have full time jobs) trying to obtain your opinions, concerns, and ideas and documenting them in order to outline what the residents want to see improved in the Woodlands. Once we have the data we need, we will then discuss, with actual figures, what is needed to possibly accomplish any of the most popular concerns. This is a start to repairing the damage that was done previously.

We cannot change the past. We are well aware of the distrust, the lack of confidence, the anger, the disappointment, the oppositions for various reasons, we got it.  We need to move forward and come together as a community and heal the wounds that have stagnated the progress of this community. We need more residents to join us and express their concerns and have your questions answered. We need your ideas and suggestions. We want your feedback so we can clarify many of the misconceptions and verify the correct information. In reading the comments on the website, there is still so much misinformation going around.

How are we ever going to get anything done when our community is so off track about the information and facts?

Come to the WNID meetings, join our committee, go on the websites, contact Karen and Doug, and receive our up coming phone calls and visits, so that you can make a decision based on facts, not rumors, or just plain wrong information.

There are some residents that no matter what we come up with will always disagree. They come to the meetings, not to add anything to the discussion, but because they want to sabotage all our efforts. Then there are others that see the need for improvements, but they want to pass the buck.

Olligator, you seem to have many suggestions listed above and are obviously concerned, come to our meetings. Debbie you believe in volunteering, join our committee. Fan for Improvement, you have some good factual information, join us or assist us. We welcome everyone who has a vested interest in The Woodlands.

What truly disappoints me is that there are those who live here, who seem to think that no improvements are needed or that the Woodlands Homeowners Association can solve the problems. If that were true and obviously it is not, just look around, we would not be discussing any of this in the first place.

Let’s try to gather our resources and through proper and civilized communication, come up with a plan to truly restore the Woodlands, the right way, this time.
