社評 0919 全功能現代國際區 艾利芙社區中心開放在即

 

經過兩年之工程位於休斯敦國際區之艾利芙社區中心已接近峻工,這座佔地三十七英畝七萬英尺之全功能現代化建築將把圖書館 、市府衛生局及醫療體育館全部包容在同一社區中心大樓。

市府管理局助理主任威拉表示。 我們希望為市政府將來的社區中心做出一個成功之範例 ,將市府對市民之服務和娛樂結合在一起。

這座位於百利大道和柯武路口之現代化玻璃建筑落成之後將是國際區一個完美之地標。

市議員唐姆斯女士要感謝多年來艾利芙社區委員會之努力, 當她當上市議員時就投票支持撥款五千九百萬元立即開始興建工程。

國際區是由各種新移民組成之社區 ,我們使用一百種以上之方言 ,他們來自中國大陸、 台灣 、越南、 伊拉克、 瓜地馬拉 、非洲地區。

我們正在熱烈歡迎這座美侖美奐之新地標拔地而起 ,加上正在興建中的東方亭閣和國際文化博物館 ,將充分標誌發掦族裔文化傳統。

Most Innovative Alief Community Center Opens Soon

The more than 70,000 square-foot Alief Neighborhood Center that combines three City of Houston departments (Li­brary, Parks, & Health) will include a library, a senior center and a clinic run by the City of Houston Health Department will be open soon.

The 37-acre complex also will have a public swimming pool, skate park and soccer field and tennis courts.

Richard Ella, Assistant Director of Houston’s General Service Department said, “We hope that the center will be a model that will be replicated across the city.”

City Councilwoman Tiffany Thomas credited the Alief Super Neighborhood Council for keeping the pressure on the city to provide the funding, and said her first vote in the city council was to authorize the funds for the construction of the building.

We live here in this area to enjoy unique experiences like culture and diversity and many of our new residents are recent immigrants from China, Taiwan, Vietnam, Africa and Latin America. We speak over 100 dialects here in the International District now.

We are also very proud that so many businesses have moved into the International District to help create and participate in our thriving economic prosperity.

The Alief Community Center will be a new landmark for our area along with the International Culture Museum project which we are so very proud to be a part of.
