April flowers are upon us. North Avondale neighbors are busy getting ready for spring and yard work has begun. If you have high school students that need volunteer hours, have them sign up for the new NANA Volunteer Work Program to boost their work resumes or college applications. The student’s work will begin in the neighborhood gardens starting this month at the Washington Triangle. We are hoping to expand the program in the future to include afterschool tutoring and litter patrol. Every neighborhood needs its residents to help maintain the beauty and culture we all take for granted. It’s easy to get involved in our neighborhood by joining our monthly NANA meetings which held on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm in the North Avondale Montessori School Cafetorium. Add the meeting dates to your digital calendar here.
NANA and Paddock Hills continue to work together to oppose the city’s zoning approval on the proposed development at Victory Parkway and Asmann Ave. The postponed zoning appeal hearing is coming up on April 20th. NANA still needs your support to STOP THE RUSH to build the Victory Vistas Development by writing letters to our Mayor and Council Members. It is never too late to voice your opinion. We are challenging the same developer, Chinedum Ndukwe, as the Evanston Community Council and Cincinnati Preservation Association in their opposition to the tearing down of the historic Hoffman School located at Durrell and Victory Parkway for a new housing development.
If you haven’t visited the new and improved NANA/NABA website, check it out at http://www.northavondalecincinnati.com. The monthly NANA Newsletter is issued electronically from this new site. You will find it fresh and current with many new features and interesting stories. We encourage all our residents and friends to submit stories, articles, events and information about what is happening in our neighborhood.
NANA also asks that each of you add us to your gift-giving list by visiting the new NANA website and making a donation. We need your support to continue making our neighborhood a better place to live and raise our families.
