If you took your kids sledding at the Taylor hill… or went sledding yourself… and lost your camera, call WBCL at 745-0576 during regular office hours. Describe the lost camera and you can be reunited!
Next time you go outside, take a good look at your roof. Or, rather, take a look at the snow on your roof and your neighbors’. If your snow is melting fast then one of two things is occurring: either your temperature is set higher then that of your neighbors, or, more likely, you could save on your heat bills and air conditioning bills if you would add insulation to your attic.
We receieved notice that the National Park Service took action on Southwood Park’s National Register of Historic Places nomination on December 22, 2009. If you heard any “WOO-HOOs” and wondered what they were about, now you know.
So, it’s official, federally… we are listed as “historic” in the eyes of the government. In a way, this is just further emperical evidence that this is a great place to live!
So, thank you to the folks who worked hard on our nomination: Angie Quinn, Creager Smith, Don Orban, Mike Galbraith and Lori Graf. We appreciate your hard work!
We’re looking forward to hoisting those wonderful brown historic district signs this spring on a nice, warm day!
If you or someone you know is looking to buy a home in Fort Wayne, check into the offers available through the City’s Neighborhood Stabilzation Program. It can be found at http://nspfortwayne.org/. The program will help potential buyers find extra money for home improvements they may want to undertake.
The program covers much of the core of Fort Wayne and Southwood Park is the southwest anchor and corner of the program’s area. The covered area includes stable and established neighborhoods like Southwood Park, Oakdale and West Central as well as many other central-city locales.
By the way, I read on the National Trust for Preservation’s website the other day that of Americans born in 1977 or later, 77% want to live in cities. If this is true, I think it bodes well for those of us who already live close to where we work, shop and play in neighborhoods like ours.
The Board of Directors voted at the September meeting to raise yearly dues by $3.50 to $38.50. This is the first increase in eight years. Postage rates and security prices have increased several times since the dues were last adjusted.
