Sunset Hill – Movin’ & Shakin’
Things are happenin’ for the newly reorganized Sunset Hill Neighborhood Association. The neighborhood — bounded by Hampton Road, West Tenth Street, Clarendon Drive, and Waverly Drive — began regrouping in late 2011 and started having regular meetings in Jan. 2012.
Sunset elected a board in April and the July meeting will be their seventh monthly gathering. Typically, meetings are held the first Tuesday of every month, but because of the Fourth of July holiday, this month’s meeting will be held on July 10 at 6:30 p.m. at Calvary Baptist Church.
At next Tuesday’s meeting, Renee Hartley, vice president of the neighborhood association, said they will be briefed on crime in the area, discuss their soon-to-be-completed website, and continue making plans for a neighborhood project tentatively called “Reclaim the Boulevard.”
“Reclaim the Boulevard is an effort to educate our neighbors along Oak Cliff Boulevard and Tenth Street, about the history of those streets and why it’s important to keep them free of bulk trash and litter,” Hartley said. “Our ultimate goal is to promote a sense of pride about our diversity and history. And to have an annual National Night Out block party at that intersection beginning this year. We’re really looking forward to the future of Sunset Hill.”
