Ongoing Updates/Feedback

Forest Park Southeast Development Process: The board has been in ongoing discussions about the development process, the NA’s future role, and communication requests with the FPSE development committee. We would like to hear your feedback on the current process-to-date, how we can continue to increase awareness, and support the neighborhood’s long-term goals of responsible development.

Drury: We invited the folks from Drury to come to the August meeting, but they declined to attend until they have an update due to a hold on all projects and development nationwide.  If you have any specific questions, we would be happy to pass them along. In the meantime, here’s a recent article that dives a little bit deeper into Drury’s history in the neighborhood.

Announcements
