2019 Annual Meeting featuring

Mayor Tim Keller

At this meeting, the city Planning Department will make a presentation on the Integrated Development Ordinances, which have replaced the old zoning code.  We all need a clearer understanding of how these ordinances work to support the character of our neighborhood, and the problems they might present as new development encroaches at our borders.  It is very important that we have a large showing for this meeting to make it clear to our elected officials that neighborhoods like ours need special protections and considerations to remain viable.  Following the Planning Department's presentation there will be a Q and A period.  Please forward your pertinent questions to Nancy Kilpatrick or your street rep ASAP. We want the presenters to prepare themselves speak to our issues that evening.

          Round Robins ... or building community in the neighborhood

In what has turned out to be a very successful and pleasant way to foster a sense of community, Spruce Park neighbors have been gathering for conversation and food at “Round Robin” tapas parties. 

In groups of 8 to 10, at rotating host houses, we spend a couple of hours getting to know each other, over savories, desserts and drinks. Here is how Round Robins work:

  • A couple of weeks prior, email invitations are sent to all who have signed up to be on the mailing list.
  • On receipt of an invitation, you RSVP the convener with name(s) and number attending. Kids are welcome. If there is interest, we can direct them all to one house, so they can play while we chat!
  • Convener assembles respondents into small groups, aiming for representation across the blocks, etc.
  • About 3 days before the event, emails are sent with the address of your party and a food assignment.
  • Forthcoming dates:  October 27, December 6

Interested?  For more info call Nancy at 243-4556, or email to nmnancy7(at)
