FPNA honored by the C.B. Historical Preservation Commission

We had a great turn out May 15 for the Council Bluffs Historical Preservation Commission awards. The get together was held in the lobby of the newly renovated Hugh-Irons Building in the 100 Block of Broadway. Mayor Tom Hanafan spoke and read a proclamation promoting May as Historical Preservation month. The officers of the Historical Preservation Commission then awarded three Neighborhood Associations, Fairmount Park, Gibraltar, and Lincoln-Fairview their yearly awards in recognition for the everyday efforts that our organizations commit themselves to keep intact what we think makes our neighborhoods unique. Efforts like working with the Parks Department to restore the Kirn Park stadium. The Brick Street Initiative that we’ve partnered with the C.B. Public Works Department and the Gibraltar NA to maintain our Historical designation. And the simple acts of volunteerism like food and clothing drives, providing lunches to Habitat for Humanity. It was a great occasion to talk with folks who have the same interests and intent as our Fairmount Park Neighborhood. For the photos from the event CLICK HERE
