The Norwood Park Foundation would like to invite SRCC residents to a special open house at the Norwood House–just for SRCC neighbors. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the house, it sits at the end of Edgecliff Terrace, just above the dog park. In its current state is isn’t much to look at, but it is about to embark on an exciting new phase of rehabilitation! They would like to update SRCC members and neighbors on the upcoming work, as well as tell its incredible history. Please stop by to enjoy the view and learn more about the future of this incredible site in our own backyard! The open house is from 10 am to noon.
– See the finished plans & color renderings of the future Norwood House venue & community center and what it will mean for YOU!
– See inside the stabilized house and get updates on the current status of the Norwood project as it enters into an exciting new phase.
– View the collection of historic photos of the old estate and the new state historical marker!
*Parking is currently very limited; please plan accordingly, walking & biking encouraged.
The city’s attempt to rewrite its land development code continues trucking along despite many unaddressed problems and concerns. The Zoning and Platting Commission has voted to not recommend the proposed code to the city council. The Planning Commission has recommended the proposed code, but only after making many hundreds of confusing amendments to it at the last hour. The ball is now in the city council’s court, as they listen to hours of testimony from the public and then somehow have to make their way through all of the amendments and remaining errors, contradictions, and missing materials. The council has voted against putting the code rewrite to a vote of the people even though a citizen’s petition was validated by the city clerk, which will likely result in legal action. If you have concerns and opinions about the code rewrite, please call or email the council. Their individual emails are listed on the city website, or you can email all of them at once using this form:
The SRCC sent a strongly worded letter to council to voice our disappointment in the process and our concerns about the proposed code. You can view the letter here.
