Vickery Place Conservation District Addition Approved

Today the City Council unanimously approved adding 13 blocks to the Vickery Place Conservation District. The additional blocks will true up the district’s boundaries and will now include all the homes from Goodwin to Richard, Greenville to Homer, the 5100 block of Goodwin, and the 5400 and 5500 blocks of Bonita (with the exception of commercial properties on Greenville).

Neighbors in both the original CD and the appended blocks worked very hard to ensure that these additional blocks were included after the original Vickery Place CD was approved last June.

Congratulations to everyone who were actively involved in this project!

Vickery Place Conservation District Approved

Last Wednesday, the Council unanimously approved the Vickery Place Conservation District.

Vickery Place is one of the oldest neighborhoods in District 14. The conservation district is generally bounded by Greenville, Laneri, Richard, and Goodwin. Sixty-seven percent of the ballots returned were in favor of the conservation district. Congratulations to the residents who have worked so hard on this!

Vickery Place Candidate Forum

Tonight the Vickery Place Neighborhood Association held a candidate forum at Vickery Towers. Candidates from both District 14 and District 2 attended the event. (Vickery Place is split between the two council districts.)

Many thanks to VPNA officer Shelia Huffman, the residents of Vickery Towers, and our moderator Bruce Thomas for a lively event.
