Goodman Manufacturing is set to improve the infrastructure surrounding its upcoming air conditioning manufacturing plant off Hwy. 290 west of Cypress.

The company will rebuild and resurface portions of two rural roads—Kickapoo and Kermier—north of Hwy. 290 to the end of Goodman’s property boundaries beginning in early August. Both roads will be expanded to four concrete lanes with a 13-foot grassy median in the middle, according to Goodman Manufacturing officials.

“The result of this work will be new concrete roads that will help move the increased traffic in the area of Goodman’s new Cypress Creek Campus,” Goodman spokesman Graham Painter said.

Officials with local nonprofit Cypress Assistance Ministries announced plans July 30 to build their own facility to serve as the organization’s headquarters on Cypress N. Houston Road. The group, which currently rents space in a shopping center at 11202 Huffmeister Road, is in the process of purchasing the land, but Executive Director Martha Burnes said they should be able to close on the property within the next 45 days.

“We’re holding off on getting into the details of what exactly we’ll build until it’s official, but I have no indication that we’re going to have a problem buying the property,” Burnes said.

The announcement was made at a celebration for CAM’s 25-year anniversary. Since being founded in 1990, the organization has grown from a local church serving meals to the needy to a 501c3 nonprofit offering financial assistance, a food pantry, resale shop, employment help and GED and ESL classes, among other forms of assistance.
