NSNA Releases Aerial Video!

Watch The Near South Neighborhood Aerial Video

The Near South Neighborhood Association (NSNA), one of Lincoln’s oldest and most active neighborhood associations, has produced an aerial video showcasing the unique character of this historic part of Lincoln.  It is believed that it is the first Lincoln neighborhood to make such a film.  The video, filmed last summer using drone technology, highlights historic residential properties, schools, businesses, and the area’s close-to-downtown vibe.
Historic Near SouthThe video can be viewed here.
“This is just one more example of the great energy we have in our Near South Neighborhood,” said Carmen Maurer, a member of the NSNA board.  “We hope this helps inform others what we already know—that this is a neighborhood with something for everyone,” she said.  The neighborhood offers homes for every size pocketbook, great schools and parks, all of it within walking and biking distance of Lincoln’s Hay Market, Downtown and Antelope Valley districts.”
“As our video says…We’re new; we’re old, our future is bold. We are poised to be one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the city, as residents seek lifestyles convenient to Downtown work and play,” she said.
NSNA was formed in 1972, first coining the name “Near South” for the neighborhood.  It is comprised of the area from 13th to 27th Streets, South Street to G Street.   Its mission is “Promoting historic preservation, neighborhood revitalization and low density land use in the Near South Neighborhood.”

In addition to the aerial video, other NSNA signature events include: Ice Cream Social, Plant Sale, Spring Cleanup, Historic Walking Tours, Mother’s Day Tour of Homes, and Holiday Luminarias.

Prescott SNAC Meeting

Prescott School Neighborhood Advisory Committee Meeting

The January meeting of the Prescott School Neighborhood Advisory Committee is Tuesday, January 26th at 6:30pm in the school’s media center.  This is the first SNAC meeting of 2016.
prescott Several things are on the agenda including a shift in perspective if you will:
Looking at the 3 CLC goals involving: student learning and development, family engagement and neighborhood involvement, please be thinking of the following questions:
  • How is the community involved in the students learning and development at Prescott? (please think of community members as different from Prescott parents)
  • How is the community supporting the families?
  • Do you know of any barriers that could affect the 3 goals?
During our December meeting we looked back at ways we are engaging our neighbors through celebrations such as: Walkathon, Movie Nights, Summer Festival and of course our Outdoor Classroom. As we move forward into 2016 what do you think we, as a group, should focus our work on?
Several things were suggested at our December meeting including a Family Garden Night and the painting of a labyrinth.
In addition, we will work together to write the agenda for our February meeting.
Upcoming community events: Feb.10th 7:30-9:00 @Pinnacle Bank Arena- Prosper Lincoln Summit (please let me know if you are interested to attend as registration is required to participate)
We hope you could join us. Your ideas are important!
