Progress! ...

Work has begun on the north lot! ...

Dear friends,

We are very excited to let you know that construction on the north lot of the HMP Park (19th and Alabama) will start next week! Several years ago, the Foundation leveraged the support of many neighbors to purchase the lot just north of the park, preserving it for neighborhood use. We're finally ready to finish that project--to the many neighbors who donated, and those who wondered what that vacant lot was all about, thanks for your patience.

We'll document the construction as it progresses, and keep you posted, but here are a couple things to keep in mind:
1) Construction will start formally next Monday, May 8.
2) Initial work will include leveling the lot, and installing a retaining wall, which will match the existing wall.
3) The expansion plan will support more green/open space for play, which many identified early on as a high priority for the park.
4) Construction, barring delays, will wrap up by early/mid-June, so we will be ready for peak summer playtime.

The park will remain open during construction! However, if the last couple days are any indication, we're in for a wet spring. Please keep the kiddos out of the construction area for their own safety, as well as to avoid any issues with soil moving, grading, and seeding.

We will be fundraising consistently going forward, as project and maintenance costs are significant, but thanks to your generosity, the support of the HMP Association, and the success of our great neighborhood events, we have fully covered the costs of the expansion.

Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions. Thank you for your support, and commitment to making HMP the greatest neighborhood in the city!

Sincerely,
Your Board
HMP Foundation

It was a wonderful day today, made even more lovely by the many folks who came out and pitched in! Thank you for your efforts to make HMP the best and most beautiful hood in the city!
PS--it already was... :)
...

What a beautiful day for a cleanup! Thank you to all our neighbors and Herron Young Life for all your hard work and enthusiasm! We had SO many bags that at one point we had 3 packer trucks, which I believe is a first. Our KIB packer truck crew was great. I was told that we had more garbage bags than ever before!

The HMP Foundation will hold its Annual Meeting on Feb 16 at 7:00 pm in the basement of Shoefly Public House. In addition to free food and discounted draft specials, we will reveal plans to develop the HMP Park into the vacant lot to its north this spring! This is your first opportunity to see the new layout and sponsor the design. We'll have merchandise to give away as well--don't miss it!! ...

2017 Progressive Dinner

Save the Date! The 2017 Herron-Morton Place Progressive Dinner will be Saturday February 25, 2017. The Progressive Dinner is a great way to combat the late-winter blues by getting out with your neighbors for a evening of food, drinks, and fun.

This is a fantastic event and a great opportunity to meet all of your neighbors. For those of you who haven’t gone to the progressive dinner before and are wondering how this all works, five HMP residents will graciously open their doors to host one of five different courses: appetizers, soups, salads, main and dessert. Each attendee will bring a dish to one of the courses. We’ll spend approximately one hour at each house before rotating on to the next course.

The event is free to Herron-Morton Place Association members and $10 for non-members. You can sign up to become a Herron-Morton Place Association member at the Progressive Dinner or online.

Please RSVP to the the 2017 Progressive Dinner via Nextdoor.
