I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. As we gear up for the Holidays lets continue to come together as a community to help others within and near to our community. Thank you to North Avondale Neighborhood Association for lending a helping hand to our neighbors at Gabriel’s Place to purchase hats, gloves and other needed items for the winter ahead.
Your our contribution to NANA by paying your NANA dues, with a little bit extra, helps ensure our neighborhood has the resources to grow and that we can contribute to projects to help others. The holiday banners are up, the new gateway sign, near Xavier, is almost complete and the flower pots and gardens around the neighborhood were beautiful. These are just a few of the things we can achieve with contributions from awesome neighbors. Thank you!
The North Avondale Neighborhood Association (NANA) meets monthly, on every second Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm, at the North Avondale Montessori School Cafetorium. All meetings are open to the public We encourage everyone to attend and consider bringing a holiday dish to share for the Holiday Social which will start before the meeting at 6:30pm. We will also celebrate Paul Barnes 97th birthday. Meeting minutes are published here: https://northavondalecincinnati.com/nana-minutes/.
Lead Service Line Replacements Are Now Underway
In December 2017, Greater Cincinnati Water Works (GCWW) Lead Service Line Replacement Program (LSLRP) sent out the first LSLRP packets to customers located in neighborhoods with current water main replacement projects. GCWW offers FREE lead testing to everyone in the service area. You can request a free lead test kit by going to the Lead Awareness website, Lead@myGCWW.org, or by calling 513.651.LEAD (5323).
NANA receives City money through the Neighborhood Support Program (NSP) for projects and activities that enhance the quality of life in our neighborhood. For 2019, NANA has the potential to receive $6.085 which we will divide into two categories.
The categories for our projects and activities are: Membership & Communication (Database, Email, Connections, Membership Events & Outreach, NANA News, Website) and we are seeking approximately $3,000 for this category and the Look and Feel (Block Watch, Clean-up & Beautification, Banners, Environmental Affairs, Land Development & Improvement, Law & Safety, Strategic Development, Traffic Studies, Zoning) and we are seeking approximately $3,085 for this category. Though we can propose new categories, the majority of projects that are proposed to the Board, fit within these categories.
Please send any ideas or comments to NANA or attend the Tuesday, December 11 NANA General Meeting where we will discuss this grant funding request with the final vote at the January 8 General Meeting.
