June Happenings


Hey neighbor, let’s get together on one of the longest days of the year and do it right. Join us 6 pm on Saturday, June 24th for lawn games, chill beverages, hot dogs & s’mores by the fire pit in our neighborhood park. Bring yourself, your kids, your neighbor, a summery dish to share, your favorite beverage and a blanket or lawn chair. We will bring the dogs, s’mores, firewood, an assortment of lawn games and ice.  See you there!

Windsor Park Land Use Meeting June 13th @ 6:30pm

We will meet at Ruckus Maker Space (roughly at 12th and Brookside in the CCIC). At this meeting, we have one item on the docket regarding the building at 1258 Windsor (historic church building at Commerce and Windsor). There will be a presentation made by Tom Battista and his team regarding their plans to re-purpose the building as an independent movie theater and restaurant.
