Two things

2 Jun

Two things that we are focusing on around South Oak Hill this year.

1. Adding in more healthy activities to our gatherings. One request from the city was to keep the momentum started by Health in the Park by incorporating healthy activities into neighborhood events. So, we’ll be making an effort around this idea this year. Some things may work, some may not. But we will try!

2. Continuing our legacy of supporting the local agency that helps so many folks in St. Louis Park, STEP. We have done this in numerous ways in the past, including donating our proceeds from our annual raffle and collecting back-to-school supplies at our ice cream social. This year, we’re incorporating some STEP-supporting stuff with our neighborhood happy hours.

Thanks for your continued support of our neighborhood association activities and contributions to building a stronger South Oak Hill neighborhood.


Annual meeting and pizza party

18 May

When: 6 p.m., Wednesday May 25, 2016

Where: Pizza Luce, Hopkins

Come connect with your neighbors. We’ll have free pizza and soft drinks provided by the neighborhood association.

We’ll have a speaker on hand to discuss development and zoning, as well as the city’s housing programs — things like the city’s remodeling program, what might be in store for the old Methodist parking lot, what’s the city’s teardown policy, etc.

An RSVP isn’t required, but sure helps as we do some planning and coordinating of how much food and drink to have on hand. Here’s a link to the posting on Nextdoor: Or send me an email to

And, if you have some skills or other resources you can contribute to the neighborhood, this is a great opportunity to offer to share them ; )

We will put up signs as a reminder this weekend. Let your neighbors know about the event, too (especially those who may not be on the Facebook, Nextdoor, etc.).
