Former nursery to bloom as city park
Bellaire City Council on Nov. 29 approved an agreement with the Jerry and Maury Rubenstein Foundation to accept the former Teas Nursery property for use as a public park.
Terms of the agreement require a nonprofit park conservancy to be set up with from four to eight members appointed jointly by the foundation and the city. The conservancy will have up to three years to create a design for the park and determine how to fund capital needs to implement it or else the property could return to the donor.
The foundation also retains the right to name the park, designate use of one-half acre of the nearly five-acre site and erect a monument, plaque or memorial at the park's public entrances.
