Vinton Street Community Meeting, May 25

Greetings Neighbors!
We hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather out there, that perfect Spring weather is finally here. Now that the cold weather is behind us, we can get outside and do some fun neighborhood projects. As our neighborhood is gearing up for its annual neighborhood cleanup on May 21, we are implementing several new exciting projects for the duration of the year.  

Before, I continue I wish to extend a warm thanks to the local Deer Park merchants. A group of Vinton Street merchants have met twice to discuss how they can actively participate thru our neighborhood association. I was moved, that during both meetings, the merchants expressed the greatest amount of thanks for all the hard work and effort we have invested into our beloved Vinton street business district. Over the last few months several business members have been joining our organization and have expressed an excitement to work with you, their neighbors, to enhance our neighborhood.  They are now meeting together to develop more community projects for Vinton Street.

This movement, spurs strong and viable progress for our neighborhood, and as the residents, we need to assure we continue to do our part. The Omaha Commerce's South Omaha Development Project has helped organize a community meeting at one of our active community merchant member’s studio.

Local photographer Larry Ferguson, will be hosting a community meeting at his studio on Vinton Street Wednesday, May 25. The agenda of this meeting is to continue discussing visions, ideas, and projects on the future of our beloved historic Vinton Street. The Deer Park Neighborhood Association has put a lot of effort and funds into the beautification of this area, and we are pleased to see community meetings being hosted to talk about the future and aspirations of Vinton Street. The Omaha Chamber of Commerce organized this event and plans to have one to two more meetings in the preceding months. If you are a resident of our neighborhood,

PLEASE, come to this meeting and share your vision as we discuss this part of our neighborhood's future. Come be a part of and whiteness a coming together of our community.
