I can’t believe it is February already! It seems like just yesterday we were gathering at Bar 29 to celebrate the Holidays. (Check out the pictures on page 3 to see your fun loving neighbors!)
Our first meeting of 2020 had several guest speakers with good information to share. The most important of which were firefighters from our local Fire House #32. Many in our neighborhood are concerned about the response from the City and Waterworks in regard to the issue of our aging water mains and the difficulty that poses in getting proper water to fight fires. There is a letter https://files.constantcontact.com/43078e90401/82903583-bbaa-4f73-bd0c-88fd5de8ec20.pdf and a map https://files.constantcontact.com/43078e90401/db568c82-8c3d-4622-8f1a-620273696ea1.pdf from the City Manager, but our local first responders are taking their own steps to ensure that they have all of the necessary infrastructure to protect the homes in North Avondale. The firefighters of Station 32 have already begun surveying the fire hydrants in the neighborhood so that they know where to obtain adequate water pressure. While their testing is not official and much is still to be done to upgrade the water mains, it is nice to know that our neighborhood first responders are taking steps without waiting for the city.
NANA is also in communication with members of the City Council as well as other officials to ensure that they treat these infrastructure improvements as a top priority! Stay tuned for more information.
We will see you at this month’s meeting!
