Reminder: The entire College Hill neighborhood is invited to take part in the August 1 official kickoff of the traffic improvement project and National Night Out celebration. Among the highlights of the event … on Mendenhall Street between Rankin Place and Carr Street … from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m:
- Mural painting at the intersection of Mendenhall and Carr (you’re invited to join in!),
- A splash pool, hula hoop making, corn hole and other activities for kids;
- A bike blender;
- Free pizza from Slices by Tony; and
- Free drinks provided by Morehead Foundry.
Neighborhood volunteers and city staff began work last Friday on traffic-slowing installations that will be tested on Mendenhall Street. The changes will be evaluated for their effectiveness and community response before permanent changes are made. A second phase in the fall will target Spring Garden Street. The project is being funded by the College Hill Municipal Service District.
