Hi Cole! We are gearing up for our Summer block party on August 5th. We are planning on having it at Russell Square Park & the surrounding streets. We are looking at blocking off street access on 36th & 37th and Vine & Gaylord. In order to do this we need approvals from the neighbors directly affected. There will be a couple of the CNA board members going out this weekend & early next week (if need be) to get signatures from the neighbors within that border. More details to follow... ...

It's too bad the Re-Imagine Play competition was not more successful. Hope the master plan can glean some ideas for improvement from the 2nd place finalist.
