Ravenswood School Presentation Plus Mariano’s Update and Ravenswood Gear

Thanks for making the neighborhood look so amazing this Halloween! What fun!

We had a wonderful neighborhood meeting last week. Thank you to Wendy Vasquez of the Friends of Ravenswood School and the Principal Heather Connolly for spending their evening with us to share all the wonderful things going on at the school.

And getting Ravenswood gear has never been easier! Support the school and show your neighborhood pride. Click here to learn how.

Also, Mariano’s is in it’s final phase of voting in the City Council. The zoning piece for Mariano’s and the Residential development passed City Council on 10/31.  We still have the TIF piece of legislation which we are expecting to pass council on the 15th.  Right now the developers are aiming, assuming legislative timing works out, to start at the end of this month, but it could be early December.  They are aiming to open the store in Fall 2013.
And lastly, the block audits are back! Last time, our neighborhood almost delivered the most block audits returned. This time, let’s be first!  They’ve made it easier this year! You can fill it out online by clicking here for the audit. Or if you’d like to a paper copy, you can download one by clicking here: Block-Audit-form-2012-2013
Happy Election Day!
