Congratulations, Cherryhurst! We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded a commitment to funding from Ellen Cohen/District C for the Neighborhood Matching Grant Program. We will now work to get the matching funds raised, the signs manufactured and then installed before the June deadline. Stay tuned on next steps!
The votes are in, and green is the winner! Due to regulations from the City, the design had to be tweaked to fit their size requirements. We are very pleased with the new design, and hope you are, too! Feel free to comment here or contact a CCA board member if you have additional feedback. Our application was submitted to the Matching Grant program by the November 2nd deadline. If we win, we will likely still need to raise some money to fund the sign toppers. More on that to come, but for now, keep your fingers crossed!
Last week at the CCA Fall Membership Meeting, the membership voted to move forward designing Cherryhurst street sign toppers and applying for the City's matching grant money from the Department of Neighborhoods. Thank you, EJ Farhood, for submitting the proposed design! Below please find:
1) an image showing the scale of the proposed design,
2) a map of the proposed locations for the street sign toppers, and
3) a survey to select your favorite color of the proposed design.
Please feel free to contact a CCA board member or to submit a comment here should you have other feedback.
For the first time, Cherryhurst will be having a joint social with ten neighborhoods from Montrose/Neartown on November 9th from 6:30–8:30 pm! Don’t miss the excitement of this special social event, hosted by St. Stephen’s (at 1827 W. Alabama).
St. Stephen’s will highlight neighborly things they’re already doing, including demos of their 3D printing machinery (which local students use), as well as preview the great new facilities that will be available to the community.
Come on out to meet your fellow Montrose neighbors of ten different civic associations. To help support the cost of the event, we’re strongly encouraging attendees to bring at least a bottle of wine to the event to share. See you there!
