GHENT NEIGHBORHOOD LEAGUE Membership Renewal Time
Thank you for being a valued member of the Ghent neighborhood. It is the involvement of residents such as yourself who make the Ghent neighborhood a safe, vibrant and enjoyable place to live. Thus, it is Ghent Neighborhood League annual membership renewal time and we hope that you will renew, or join, using the GNL membership form below with a $10 check made payable to the Ghent Neighborhood League and mail to: GNL, P.O. Box 11431, Norfolk, VA 23517.
It has been a very active year for the Ghent neighborhood, with many proposed City zoning changes that will impact our Ghent neighborhood, which resulted in the creation of neighborhood working groups to provide targeted feedback to the City. In addition, the GNL has responded to a number of residential project reviews in, and proposed commercial projects surrounding, our neighborhood. The GNL February monthly meeting featured the proposed City of Norfolk Arts District, to link the outskirts of Ghent with Downtown, that is currently being explored by the City. We understand that an upcoming “live Arts District preview” will be staged in the proposed area during mid-April 2013.
From a neighborhood project perspective, the GNL has spearheaded the launch of an expanded street sweeping program on both the north and south sides of Princess Anne Road as well as partnered with the City in efforts to improve Stockley Gardens from a safety , access and landscaping standpoint. This has involved the GNL’s presence in a newly-formed neighborhood working group to address the various issues and possible pathways to help remedy homelessness in the neighborhood and beyond. The GNL continues its work to partner with Ghent residents, the City of Norfolk, Ghent Business Association and other entities to ensure the neighborhood mission of protection and preservation continues. .
There are many exciting and important things happening in Ghent this year as we continue this work to ensure that Ghent will continue to be a great neighborhood both now and for generations to come.
Your membership renewal is the best way to stay informed and involved. Also, if you provide an email below, you will receive the monthly “GNL Monthly Meeting Notice and Bulletin(s)” for members, including invitations to neighborhood socials, such as the inaugural GNL Holiday Tea that was held this year at the historic Woman’s Club on Fairfax Avenue.
Please return the form below back to us with your $10 annual dues postmarked by April 1st , if you wish to be eligible to participate in the upcoming spring GNL elections.
