Update – May 14th City Council Meeting

May 6, 2012 in uncategorized


I wanted to post a quick update for those of you who are interested in hearing where we are on our long sojourn!

To date we’ve received dues from Van Bergen homeowners that have joined the John Van Bergen Homeowners Association. The HPC (Historic Preservation Commission) will be presenting a brief explanation of our VB project on May 14th at the City Council meeting. We would like the entire City Council to be familiar with our ambitious project as it’s part of our HPC goals to educate our community about preservation of significant buildings and parks in our community. We feel that we can make strides to this end by offering learning opportunities to residents of HP and surrounding communities.

If you have a few minutes free on the evening of May 14th please show your support by attending the City Council meeting. You can leave immediately following our very quick ‘show and tell’.

Many people have given us wonderful ideas regarding how to promote the month long event. We’re organizing a PR/Communications committee. One homeowner has offered to be our ‘Social Media’ chair and she’s savvy in FB and Twitter!

Please send us your thoughts, ideas, comments, etc. We are thrilled to be working with all of you and your enthusiasm is infectious!

Thanks! Lisa T
