Landscape Upgrade Projects
The playground is getting a facelift! The neighbors’ response to our recent fundraising request has allowed us to put in fresh green sod where stickery weeds had taken over. We invite you to enjoy the grass starting in April. Thank you for your patience while the fence is up, letting the roots get established.
The Pocket Park has a fresh image too. The formerly plastic and weed-covered area facing the street on Bay and 18th Avenues has now been replaced by landscaping with Harawn Muhly native grasses.
Did you know that in the early days of FOBA, we planted over 400 trees in the neighborhood? Our tree-canopied streets are one reason people like living here. Now, a new group of FOBA neighbors is teaming up to replace some trees in empty chicanes (traffic calming devices), care for our existing trees, and plant even more trees in our area. Our FOBA Tree Committee is made up of tree-loving and tree-appreciating neighbors. If you would like to be a part of this effort, contact us at info@FOBAneighbors.org with the subject line “TREES.”
FOBA Welcomes New Board Members
Several volunteers have recently joined our FOBA Board of Directors as voting members. Board members stay abreast of issues in the neighborhood and provide valuable ideas and decision-making.
Next FOBA meeting - Join us!
Our board meetings are open to all neighbors. We welcome visitors, and joining us is a good way to get connected with the community! The next meeting is Monday, April 12, from 7:30 - 9 PM. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get a Zoom link.
