The Public Housing program is being closed in New Boston. All properties of Oak Terrace, Link Homes, Corley Homes and Dogwood Plaza will be converted to private-based properties. Rent will involve a Housing Choice Voucher program, Project-Based Voucher Program, or market rental rate. So, this brings up questions.  Do I have to move? Will my rent go up? The answer is:  Maybe or maybe not. Resident meetings have been scheduled to give you information and to answer your questions. You must attend one of the scheduled meetings for your housing assistance to continue. Here are the dates and times:

 

Corley Homes – Wednesday, Nov 6 at 1:00 PM at Corley Community Center

Oak Terrace – Wednesday, Nov 6 at 3:00 at Rice Street Community Room

Dogwood Plaza – Thursday, Nov 7 at 1:00 at Rice Street Community Room

Link Homes – Thursday, Nov 7 at 3:00 at Rice Street Community Room

 

Reasonable accommodations will be provided for elderly/disabled residents upon request. One evening meeting will be provided for those who work days.

If you can’t make the meeting for your location, attend a different meeting. All meetings will have the same basic information, but details will be focused on that neighborhood. We want the best for you and your family. Help us help you by attending your scheduled meeting.

 

Tuesday, November 5, voting will be conducted in your precincts. All Property Management’s residents, except Oak Terrace 99-100 and Davis Street, will vote at the Courthouse. Oak Terrace  99-100  and Davis street will vote at First Baptist Church. All voters will need an official picture ID such as a drivers license. For more info, contact Elections at 903-628-6810. It is your privilege to vote.

If you need to see your Occupancy Specialist, or you are addressing an issue or complaint, or needing a vehicle parking sticker or wanting to register your pet, please do not show up when you pay rent. The first and last week of the months are very busy, and they may not get the chance to see you; so please make an appointment.

We have seen bottles, diapers, wrappers, cigarette butts etc., thrown in the yards, the parking lot and on the top of the roofs of our neighborhoods. We have dumpsters provided in all the areas for your use. Residents must take responsibility and ask your guests to do the same. You will be charged for trash removal for not following these rules.

ATTN: Direct TV Customers

 

Direct TV employees are not allowed service on NBPM Property. See the Central Office for more information.

Be Prepared for the

Weather Change

 

It’s finally feeling like fall here in North East Texas. It’s been a crazy year for weather. With all Mother Nature brought us this spring and summer, we are gearing up for an equally crazy winter. Every one of us must prepare for the upcoming cold weather. Please remove water hoses from outside hydrants. If you have problems disconnecting them, please contact maintenance staff. Outside decorative plants should be taken inside or covered. Vehicles need the anti-freeze checked or changed. Dress in layers. It’s also a great time to stock up on your food and water supply. If you are under a WINTER STORM WARNING, FIND SHELTER RIGHT AWAY.  Stay off roads, stay indoors and dress warmly. Prepare for power outages.

Smoking is not permitted anywhere in the buildings, including apartments. Smoking outside is allowed as long as smoke cannot drift into any door or window of any building. If a resident smells tobacco smoke coming from an apartment, they are to report this to the office as soon as possible. Management will seek the source of the smoke and take appropriate action.

 

 

 

WIC will be at NEW BOSTON PROPERTY MANAGEMENT in the Community Room the second Thursday of each month.  Contact info: Office 903-798-3250 or mobile 903-556-2811.

Military Salute

Founder of Toys for Tots Program


It started with a homemade rag doll. Diane Hendricks made it in 1947 and asked her husband to give it to charity. But William Hendricks, then a major in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves couldn’t find a charity that gave Christmas gifts to needy children, and so he started his own, running it from his office in the publicity department of Warner Bros. Studios. It was the birth of Toys for Tots. Applications need to be turned in by December 1. Anyone wishing to donate may bring new, unwrapped toys or money to our Central Office before December 4.

Every child deserves a little Christmas.
