Opportunity To Provide Input On Proposed SoDo Project
The consultants responsible for the planning process of the proposed SoDo (South of Downtown) revitalization project will be back in October and November to hopefully gather further community feedback. The next meeting is scheduled for October 6th from 5:30 to 7:30 at the F Street Rec Center located at 1225 F street.
This proposed project will directly impact areas of both the Near South and Everett neighborhoods. Please attend the meeting if you can and inform your neighbors about the event as well so that as many neighborhood residents as possible can have their voices heard.

Six Historic Homes Showcased
The Near South Neighborhood Association will showcase six historic homes in the Near South area on May 10th.
Keeping with the mission of the Near South Neighborhood all six properties have been preserved or revitalized to their original state. Proud home owners will open their doors from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm, tickets can be found at The Mill (both locations), Meadowlark, & 17th and Washington Russ’s Market.
Homes in the tour include 1929 C, 1401 S 15th, 1932 S 24th, 1862 Harwood St, 1801 C and 1268 S 20th. In memory of Bertram Goodhue (designer of the State Capitol) the tour will include the ground breaking of the Goodhue Boulevard Monument which will be located on the South side of the State Capitol on Goodhue Boulevard.
“The neighbors of the Near South have been opening our doors for years; you’ll often find us sitting on our porches, walking through the tree lined sidewalks and enjoyed the small town community that is our neighborhood. The tour of homes allows others to see what beauty lines inside those walls. We can’t wait to see you there.” said Jim Friedman, Near South resident and Association President.
Media interested in visiting the tour or taking pictures must coordinate with Jerre Brammeier at (402) 477-1692.
