位於國際區百利大道和克武街交界的艾利夫社區服務大廈，上週六上午在鑼鼓聲中由市長特納剪綵揭幕 ，這座面積超過七萬英尺佔地三十七英畝之現代化活動中心， 將為國際區揭開文化兿術之新頁。
市長特納宣佈， 這座大樓將有市政府衛生圖書館及其他社區居民提供免費午餐娛樂等服務， 佔地三十七畝的中心設有足球游泳孩童游戲區， 並可用於運動大會。
國際區位於休斯敦西南區佔地十三英里。 近年來由于商業土地開發， 因而稅收迅速增加，帶動學區預算得到改進， 是我們共同之功勞。
Alief Neighborhood Center Building Rises Up
The Alief Neighborhood Center building at the junction of Bellaire Blvd. and Kirkwood in the International District was formally open by Mayor Turner last Saturday. This modern building covers more than 70,000 square feet and is located on 37 acres of land.
Mayor Turner also announced that the city's Health Department, Library and Social Services Department will be moved into the new building to serve the Alief area.
The total cost of the project was $58 million dollars. Over the last several years more businesses have moved into the area. We have been able to generate more tax money to improve our school district and many other facilities and services in the area. We are also part of these businesses in the International District.
Today we are so happy to have such a new and modern cultural and educational building rising up in our district. This will allow us to sponsor more cultural activities and also positively affect the economy of the area.
We also want to express our gratitude to Mayor Turner and to all the city leaders who have worked hard to make this huge project come alive and who have created a beautiful reality in our area.
