All, Please enjoy the photos from our 2017 Neighborhoods USA tour. Three of our great Council Bluff’s Neighborhood Associations, Bayliss West, Gibraltar and Fairmount Park, banded together to share our little piece of the country with folks from all across the nation.
May 16th is the day of the citywide Clean Sweep event, where people turn out to pick up all that litter on our city streets. FPNA participates in this event in its own way. We pay exclusive attention to our own neighborhood, including every street and alley, every stray paper or cigarette butt—nothing escapes the eagle eyes of our volunteers. If you want to join us, please meet on Tuesday, May 16th at 5:30 p.m. at the Glendale (at the top of Glen Avenue) Pumping Station with your gloves. Garbage bags will be furnished. When we’re finished, we are invited to Bayliss Park for a light meal served by our Mayor and City Council members. This meal begins at 7:00 p.m. but if we arrive much later than that, we’ve found from past experience that the food has already been devoured.
The Fairmount Park Neighborhood Association is excited to be a part of the metro area’s charitable holiday – Omaha Gives! on May 24! Learn more at OmahaGives.org and get ready to prove how generous Omaha and Council Bluffs can be!
Sorry for the late notice but the warm weather and rain have started the undergrowth to shoot up
Please see attached the Neighborhoods USA (NUSA) Registration Information for the May 24-27th Conference. FPNA/GNA/Bayliss West and Lincoln/Fairview Neighborhood Associations are sponsoring two of the neighborhood tours during the upcoming NUSA Conference. Conference attendees from around the country will board busses and enjoy sightseeing around our respective neighborhoods, while our own tour volunteers will point out places of interest along the way. Some homeowners will host short inside tours of their homes as well. We hope to see you all there.
