Neighborhood Spotlight: East/Northeast
Here are a few spotlights of neighborhoods Ashlee is currently working with.
Arlington Woods Neighborhood Association
In June 2017, neighbors in the Arlington Woods Neighborhood convened for a community conversation to start a Neighborhood Association in the area. With support from INRC and the R.O.C.K. Initiative at Eastern Star Church, the group has elected officials, determined their name and boundaries, and laid the groundwork for vision and mission statements. Neighbors have also brainstormed creative ways to connect and engage with community members, and are planning a Mix and Mingle for the October meeting. Come out and learn more about this awesome new group!
Arlington Woods Neighborhood Association meets on the 3rd Monday of the month at 6pm at Eastern Star Church (5750 30th Street, 46218).
Community Heights Neighborhood Organization
Community Heights is nestled on the East Side and full of engaged and connected neighbors. The group is constantly looking for ways to build upon their community assets. The most recent endeavor is a soccer field and dog-friendly park in the green space behind Anna Brochhausen School 88. They are in the beginning stages of the plan, and we will keep you posted on this story.
Community Heights Neighborhood Organization meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 7pm in the flex space at Arlington Heights Baptist Church (5630 E. 16th Street, 46218).
Little Flower Neighborhood Association
Little Flower Neighborhood Association is a Near Eastside Community that has truly learned how to recognize the assets and talents of the people around them and build upon the possibilities in their neighborhood. The Veggie Swap was a huge success this summer, and we are always excited for the next Little Flower Initiative.
Little Flower Neighborhood Association meets on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7pm at Little Flower Catholic School (1401 N. Bosart Avenue, 46201). Meetings alternate between social gatherings and neighborhood meetings. Please review the schedule here.
Westminster/St. Philip Neri
Formerly TEAR United, the Westminster/St. Philip Neri (WSPN) neighborhood has a new name. From neighborhood cleanups to IMPD Mobile Roll Calls, WSPN is making leaps and bounds to engage community members. On October 7, the neighborhood will host a fall cleanup and looks forward to connecting with you.
Westminster/St. Philip Neri meets on the 1st Monday of the month at 5pm at Englewood Christian Church (57 N. Rural Street, 46201).
