A group of residents in the northwest Dearborn neighborhood of Howard Park have revived the long-dormant neighborhood association.
The Howard Park Neighborhood Association will meet for the first time in several years at 7 p.m. Oct. 22 in the media room at Howard Elementary School, 1611 N. York.
City leaders and Dearborn police officers will address the meeting, discuss the city’s Neighborhood Watch program and answer questions.
The association is still in its early stages, but interested citizens already have a number of options to find out more about the group.
The group’s Web site, www.howardparkneighborhood.blogspot.com, features photos of some of the area’s notable homes and businesses. The group also hosts pages on Facebook and MySpace. The e-mail address is [email protected].
The association consists of the area south of Ford Road to Wilson Street , bounded by Telegraph to the west and Outer Drive to the east. Howard Elementary School and the adjacent Howard Park sit in the heart of the neighborhood.
“Like other neighborhood associations throughout Dearborn, ours can be a helpful conduit between city leaders and our unique community,” the group’s website states. “Soon, we hope to have meetings to address questions regarding issues like Dearborn’s Public Service Days program and Neighborhood Watch program.”
