  The next meeting of the Edgewood Park Neighborhood Association is Tuesday, September 16th, at 7:00 p.m., at the Larry Cox Senior Center.  Our featured speaker will be Brian Blackmon from the city's Office of Sustainability.  In July, I attended a meeting in which Mr. Blackmon outlined the Community Gardening Ordinance, and found it very interesting.  You can find a link to the notes from that meeting here:  http://www.cityofknoxville.org/sustainability/urbanag_071414.pdf  Since there has been talk in our past meetings about creating a garden in our neighborhood, I'm sure many will find Mr. Blackmon's talk interesting.

  On October 7, between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., we'll be observing National Night Out with a get together at the gazebo in Edgewood Park.  There will be snacks and beverages, and our Police Liaison Officer, Officer Josh Hurst will be joining us.  It's also a time when the political candidates visit, so be sure to attend and show the neighborhood you care.

  City Council member Nick Della Volpe will be our guest at October's meeting, on Tuesday the 21st.  Please plan to attend, and let Mr. Della Volpe know your concerns and hopes for our neighborhood.

  If you're a regular attendee of our meetings, please ask a neighbor to come with you!  And if you've never attended, now is a great time to become involved.  

See you on the 16th!

North Broadway Corridor Planning Group Convenes PDF Print E-mail

Beginning this spring, the presidents of the six neighborhood groups bordering Broadway from Central to I-640 have been meeting with David Massey, Director of the Office of Neighborhoods, to brainstorm the transformation of North Broadway from a less-than-desirable address to something we can all be proud of.  Maggie Davidson and Ellen Zavisca from EPNA have been attending the meetings, about once a month, talking with Mayor Rogero, Chief of Police David Rauch and various city officials.  

In the most recent meeting, Terry Faulkner of the Bearden  Council of Neighborhoods talked to the group about their twenty-year transformation of the District in Bearden, and spoke of ideas she had for North Broadway.  

 Peter Pallesen of EPNA will be attending future meetings with Maggie, as Ellen will be enjoying time with her new daughter, Sunflower Evelyn.  Updates from these meetings will be given at our monthly EPNA meetings.
