Notes from the RNCA and Summer/Norwood Block Club Meeting-May 12, 2014 

1.Children's Hospital re-use: RFP's will be circulated in the 3rd quarter of 2014, a developer will hopefully be designated in the first quarter of 2015,with construction to commence 4th quarter of 2016.

New children's hospital is scheduled to open October 2016.

2. Parking on Richmond: Councilmembers LoCurto and Rivera will coordinate petitions to homeowners to allow parking on both sides of Richmond during the months of April through mid November, from 9am to 4pm.

3.Sidewalks: Councilmember Rivera stated that if you have a damaged, dangerous sidewalk to report it to 311.

4. 212 Richmond, a fire damaged this property in November of 2011, the home has been sold, no repairs have been made. David Rivera said he would look into this: recently a neighbor told me permits have been issued for the work to begin on this property,

5. Street Paving: Richmond is still difficult to drive on especially between Symphony and Colonial Circle, residents feel that the last paving a few years ago was not done properly, contributing to the current problems.

6. Norwood/Summer has issues with the Sedita Apartments, loud music etc.

The Richmond Ashland National Register Historic District Initiative [RANHDI] is a community-led collaborative process that is creating awareness of our neighborhood’s boundaries and historic importance, coalescing pride of place under a brand that is attractive to current and potential home and business owners, and preparing the way for appropriate investment in homes and buildings that can be assisted with available historic rehabilitation tax credits.

To learn more about the Initiative and the benefits of listing our neighborhood in the National Register of Historic Places, including income tax credit for historic homeowners, please see
