Thanks to Captain Paul Broxterman who was reassigned on Sunday, February 14 from District Four to the Special Services Section. Upon leaving he sent NANA this message, “I just wanted to let you know I thoroughly enjoyed my time serving you in District Four. I love the neighborhood and people here. Thank you again for your support.” We welcome Captain Mack back to our District. (see article in From the Police).
Plan on attending the Neighborhood Summit (see information under Fun With Your Neighbors) and sign up for the 10:05 – 10:50 B1 Making Your Place Safe – Exec. Asst. Chief Bailey • Captain Maris Herold
Leadership from the Cincinnati Police Department will give a presentation on the new crime prevention place based strategy. Called PIVOT, or Place Based Investigations of Violent Offender Territories. This will be an interactive opportunity to learn about new cutting edge efforts to make communities safe. The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion from several neighborhood leaders.
Again, after the fire inside the abandoned 704 N. F. Shuttlesworth property owned by the Greater New Light Baptist Church (also former home of Mayor Theodore Berry & Judge Ted Berry), I have been actively working with the City to fix this ongoing problem property. The property has been condemned. The church has 30 days to comply and get a VBML (see From Your Neighbors for more information on VBML). A concerned resident brought this to NANA’s attention which reaffirms how important it is for proactive residents to bring matters of concern to our volunteer board. Remember NANA is everyone who lives, works or owns property in North Avondale and Block by Block, Neighbor by Neighbor, that is how change is made. A special thanks to Captain Wessel and his department at Fire House 32 (Forest Ave.) for their speedy response.

I am also waiting to hear a City update on actions taken on “failure to comply” on 767 Clinton Springs, owned by Bethlehem Baptist of 760 N. Fred Shuttlesworth
