Historic Preservation Efforts Update:
ECC's First Annual Homes Tour

a big success! THANKS TO ALL!

On the afternoon of Sunday, May 22nd, ECC neighbors with historic homes opened their doors and shared their stories with about 50 guests who explored our communal history, learned practical approaches to home preservation, and met more neighbors. We want to extend our appreciation to all the families and volunteers especially our UT intern, Julie McGilvray, for participating.  More info about our efforts will be available in files stored at the Terrazas Library and on the ECCNPT's website www.eastcesarchavez.org before summer ends.  For more information, contact Amy Thompson at 499-0780 or mankin76@gmail.com.

Community meetings for residents and neighbors held over the last few months has been very positive and

continued support by our neighborhood could possibly double the number of truly affordable housing for

seniors and add services that could be used by existing and future residents at RBJ and for those neighbors

who want to bike or walk to local retail outlets.  The next community meeting is in the works for later this summer. You can learn more about the goals of the Board of Directors who will ultimately decide what to do with their land or get on the meeting notice list by contacting Ashley or visiting the new website
