Picnic and Membership Meeting

We will be holding our annual membership meeting and picnic in a different format this year. The potluck social gathering will be held on a Sunday afternoon, as has been our long practice. But the membership meeting for Board elections and other business will be held the following Thursday hoping for a better focus on matters.

The Potluck picnic will be in the late afternoon of Sunday, May 31st, details to follow.

The Membership Meeting will be held at the Hattie Weber Museum at 6 pm on Thursday, June 4th.

Look for a slate of potential Board candidates from the Nominating Committee in early May.

We hope to see you at both of these events.

Welcome to Old North Davis

Dear Old North Davis neighbor or visitor,

We invite you to join with us in celebrating and improving our historic community–Old North Davis, the area between Fifth and Seventh and B and the ¬†railroad tracks. Get involved in our projects and join the ONDNA. We look forward to your participation and membership. Our goal is to promote city policies and neighborhood development that reinforce Old North Davis’s unique ambience, residential diversity, architectural scale, and historical character. We hope to encourage positive community spirit, a safe and inviting environment, goodwill, communication and friendship, and cooperation with other organizations that are attempting to advance the general welfare of our neighborhoods and the City of Davis. We manage to have some fun, as well!

The Old North Davis Neighborhood Association is a democratic, voluntary organization of Old North residents, property owners, and organizations. ONDNA membership is equally open to area residents, property owners (residents or not), businesses, and other organizations with neighborhood locations, such as the Davis Joint Unified School District and churches. The ONDNA is not a homeowners association and seeks to distinguish itself from private organizations with quasi-governmental authority. The ONDNA has no such power and does not seek it.

The ONDNA is one of more than a dozen associations of its kind in Davis. It and the others were formed in response to City of Davis policies that encourage formation of neighborhood organizations. City staff are assigned to assist such groups and were instrumental in starting the ONDNA. Staff guided the ONDNA’s development and continues to follow its activities.

The ONDNA meets city requirements for recognition as a bona fide representative of a neighborhood and the City of Davis accords it that status.

–Your Community Board Members
