A Note from the New OPNA President

posted Jan 12, 2012, 10:24 AM by Spencer Hellman
Thanks so much to everyone who came out to our Fall Block Party! We had a great turn out, and I really appreciated getting to talk with neighbors, old and new. Thank you, also, for choosing me as your president for the coming year. My wife and I purchased our house in Owen Park in March 2010, and we love living here. We were drawn to this neighborhood for a number of reasons including the beautiful park, the well-kept yards and gorgeous historic houses, the proximity to downtown, and the diverse blend of neighbors. We see so much potential in this area and we are very excited about the growth that is already evident within Owen Park and surrounding areas. I have found that Owen Park residents possess a lot of passion for their homes and neighborhood, and I look forward to working together toward making Owen Park an increasingly beautiful, safe, and enjoyable place to live. It is my hope that the Owen Park Neighborhood Association would exist as an avenue for uniting together toward this common cause and that neighbors would find meetings, communications, and activities to be welcoming, accessible, and beneficial. I and the other OPNA board members welcome your feedback and participation. We want to hear your ideas, and we are excited for you to be involved! -David
