History: Green Ridge North Community


Green Ridge North Community subdivision was built in 1966. It was built on a

piece of land that was nothing but grasslands. At the moment of its development

there were local schools in existence, Aldine High School and Stovall Junior

High. When the community was built the main entrance was on Hardwicke

Road. Around the corner from the entrance there were five model homes on

Chipman on display. The first homes to be built were on Wellman and Kirkfield.

Green Ridge North Community selling point was its Pool Center’s 154,000 gallon

swimming pool. The pool is still in great condition after a recent resurface

plastering endeavor. The pool center is now called the Aquatic Centre.

Green Ridge North Community originally was not part of the City of Houston

city’s limits. It was not until 1976 that it was annex into the city. The community

is home to 1189 homes. The subdivision is within reach of the Woodlands, Bush

Intercontinental Airport and not that far from downtown Houston. The growing

community has seen many changes. Recently, Greenspoint Management

Redevelopment Authority has instill a six million plus improvement street scape

into the surrounding community. The Green Ridge North Community Board of

Trustees has also started making the necessary improvements to the original

Hardwicke entrance. Thus, much more has to be done.

Today, Green Ridge North Community is home to many. Many of those, who join

in the endeavor of voting and passing a master plan for our community. This

master plan will serve as a guideline. Within this master plan the entrances will

be re-landscaped into their glory days, the Aquatic Centre will see some

improvements as well from landscaping, spray grounds, pavilions, new restrooms,

volleyball and basketball courts, a new Recreational Centre, a new West Road

Park, and a banner district (Main Square and Grand Avenue). Every community

has a story. And ours is still to be told.
