Changes to Our Park: A Meeting about Placemaking and other Events
Come to the next General Meeting of the Highland Park Neighborhood Association on Tuesday April 5th and, after the refreshments, we will work together regarding the meeting’s agenda. First we will ask you to advise us on plans for the next phase of changes to Ellwanger & BarryPark…including ideas for a kiosk, planters, entrance plaza and other improvements. Talk to your kids and bring their input to meeting: What new things would they like to see at the playground ? What would you like to see improved ? Next we will ask you to join us in designing a special related project – an artistic treatment of the street as an aid to Traffic Calming. Get your green thumb ready or maybe just your rake as we will go over plans to spruce up Neighborhood Gardens in the coming weeks. Learn about our upcoming May Exhibit during the Lilac Festival called Flower & Ice that highlights the 20th Anniversary of the Ice Storm that brought many of us together (And share your story and photos about that event). Dust off your camera lens and get details on how you can participate in our upcoming “Picture the Neighborhood Days” competition. You will be helping us design our 2012 printed calendar. And make plans to relax as we continue our Early Evening of Music Series this summer. Oh yeah, there is a garage sale for which you will want to start getting ready. Plus something called “Neighborhood Spirit Day” where you can help us win money for our projects and have fun too.
The subject of this meeting is all about our Spring & Summer Neighborhood Community Initiatives including events you will want to know about and perhaps also participate in. And we will even leave some time to socialize…because for some of these projects, the conversation is just beginning .
