The median year of construction for our original homes is 1957 – 80% of original homes in the subdivision were built before 1959.
Woodside Civic Club contracts for security patrols by a private company. The expense of that patrol is shared with adjoining neighborhoods (Linkwood and Westridge). Maintenance of the landscaped medians on Stella Link is also paid by the civic club.
The Woodside Civic Club is an organization of homeowners in near southwest Houston, in Harris County Texas. The neighborhood is a part of postal ZIP code zone 77025, situated just north of Loop 610 and just east of Stella Link Road. Our tree-covered subdivision is approximately 2 miles west of the Reliant Astrodome, 4 miles southwest of Rice University and the Texas Medical Center, and 8 miles southwest of downtown Houston.
Woodside includes 483 single-family lots. Our neighborhood's population is approximately 1,100 persons, and our census area (tract 4133.00, all of block group 5 plus a few homes from block group 4) is classified as “upper income”. The subdivision's proximity to Rice University, the University of Houston, and the Texas Medical Center helps explain the high percentage of college graduates and holders of advanced degrees in Woodside.
Our subdivision is moderately old, relative to most residential neighborhoods in the Houston area. The median year of construction for our original homes is 1957 – 80% of original homes in the subdivision were built before 1959. A few of our neighborhood's original homes have been torn down and replaced with residences much larger than the originals built in the late 1950s.
Woodside Civic Club contracts for security patrols by a private company. The expense of that patrol is shared with adjoining neighborhoods (Linkwood and Westridge). Maintenance of the landscaped medians on Stella Link is also paid by the civic club. In the active mosquito season, the civic club pays to have regular spraying done by a private company. These services are funded by annual civic club dues for Woodside homeowners, which are voluntary and low, compared to most inside-the-loop neighborhoods.
The Woodside Civic Club holds its general meetings quarterly in January, April, July and October, normally on a Wednesday evening. Time and place are announced on this website. The meetings are short and, occasionally, entertaining.
The directors and officers of Woodside Civic Club are unpaid volunteers. The financial statements and tax returns of the group are public records – you may ask to see them at any general meeting.
Woodside is a member of the Braeswood SUPER NEIGHBORHOOD.
