WHAT’S GOING ON IN OAK PARK?
OPNA MONTHLY GET-TOGETHER Thursday, July 2
At the OP Community Center–3425 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
Last month we identified issues that plague all parts of the neighborhood.
This month, we band together with city officials, departments and other organizations to get proactive in solving these problems!
Meet neighbors with similar concerns and the folks who are instrumental in solving them.
We’ll start with social-time at 5:30 then right on to business at 6! Come for all or just a few minutes; just join us.
DON’T LOSE TO THE TRASH Saturday July 11, 7 -11 a.m.
Join your neighbors for the OPNA’s COMMUNITY CLEANUP as we grab our gloves, bags, brooms and pickers to grab trash (and Independence Day fireworks debris) to make the street cleaner and safer for the middle of Summer.
We’ll meet in front of Father KBK School, then split up to head towards 12th/14th Ave and Broadway.
NO NEED TO SIGN UP, JUST SHOW UP! We’ll have the supplies and tools, we just need you! Show up any time, 7-11am, (but early is best!)
Please where closed-toe-and-heal shoes, and sun protection and a refillable water bottle would be a strongly suggested. We’ll have some snacks and water on hand.
All participants will be signing a simple waiver before starting.
Please post this flier where you can–we appreciate it! volunteers@OakParkNA.com
WHO’S HAVING A PARTY? Tuesday, August 4
The whole nation is because it’s National Night Out!
Are you having a block or street party on National Night Out (NNO)?
Remember, the goal is to get neighbors out of their homes and meeting their neighbors. Your event can be simple or very involved. It’s up to you. But, OPNA may help cover some of the costs.
The Historic Center of Oak Park, 35th & Broadway, is quickly realizing the dream of new housing and commercial spaces. The Broadway Triangle Project will bring nearly 30 new homes (mix of apartments and single-family homes) and much needed retail spaces.
The resurgence of this section of Oak Park is an exciting opportunity to bring the region to our beautiful community. We are working to create a more inviting and welcoming area that will give residents and visitors a variety of choices for dining, shopping and relaxing.
Oak Park, and Sacramento, will truly benefit the most if the reduction in crime, new construction, and new businesses is shared by the entire neighborhood. Oak Park has a long and vibrant history that we embrace and cherish. Oak Park is also home to one of the most diverse populations in the United States and we value that. Working as a community, we will make certain our voices are heard as we encourage development, invite change, and protect our neighbors. It is a delicate balance to find between history and progress. OPNA is dedicated to “Creating Our Future, While Preserving Our History“.
What can we accomplish together? Anything!
