MPORTANT PARKING INFORMATION

There will be no additional special parking restrictions posted (beyond the usual parking restrictions) during the hours of EPNA trick or treat. However, with so many little witches and warlocks enjoying this fall favorite activity, safety is our greatest concern. Narrow streets make it difficult for emergency vehicles to pass through if needed.

We ask that neighbors voluntarily observe parking for themselves and their guests as follows:

* Park cars off the streets (in garages, parking spaces and driveways wherever possible). * Park on the even side of the street only during the hours of Trick-or-Treat. * Encourage all guests to arrive and park before the festivities begin and to observe these voluntary parking requests. * Drive with extra care through the neighborhood during the hours of Trick-or-Treat.

THIS EVENT MAY BE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AS LOCAL AND STATE HEALTH AND SAFETY MANDATES DICTATE. CHANGES WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON NEXT DOOR, EPNA MEMBER EMAIL, FACEBOOK, AND THE EPNA WEBSITE.

68TH STREET MONUMENT IMPROVEMENTS


If you have driven northbound into the neighborhood on N. 68th Street at W. Center Street, you are familiar with the entry monuments located at that intersection.  Until recently landscape beds filled the space in front of the monuments.  Over time these beds became overgrown with weeds which obscured the monuments’ Enderis Park lettering.  Keeping the weeds under control became a maintenance headache.  Thus, the EPNA board decided to explore other alternatives.

The selected solution was to create small, hard surface spaces replacing the landscape beds.  The project was completed by neighborhood volunteers.  Jim Best and his Oxford House colleagues did the hard work of digging out the old dirt and laying the stone pavers.  Greg Happ volunteered use of his trailer to haul away the old soil.  Greg also transported the new stone, which was donated by Pat Yahle, from Pat’s house to the site.  This small project is a good example of what committed neighborhood volunteers can accomplish.
