Safe living spaces for all Hobby residents is of utmost importance to the District. We’re excited to announce the recent Blue Star certification of the Bellestone Villas Apartments. The complex has new ownership and is undergoing renovations to update the property, which houses 60 units, with six various floor plan options. It is a family-friendly campus, with an area for picnics and grilling as well as a playground.
More about their certification, and what it means:
About Blue Star Certification
The Houston Police Department performs complementary security assessments of apartment complexes and offers recommendations based on their Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) program.
CPTED is based on the premise that the proper design and effective use of the built environment can lead to a reduction in the incidence and fear of crime, and an improvement in the quality of life. Properties that meet these standards are awarded Blue Star certification.
Four Key Concepts Of Blue Star Certification
- Natural Surveillance
- Natural Access Control
- Territorial Reinforcement
- Maintenance & Landscaping
Blue Star Certification is a strictly volunteer effort on the part of the apartment complexes. We want to recognize all of the effort, dedication and foresight that goes into the certification process. Bellestone Villas Apartments joins our other multi-family living communities, Telephone Road Elderly Apartments and Dover Place Apartments, in holding the Blue Star-certified distinction. Thanks for making Hobby proud!
