The Deer Park Neighborhood Council                      Vol. 10   No. 27            March  2007





By Julia Long





Jack Garves and his wife are moving this week to their new home in Summerville, and I'm really going to miss them.  But Jack and both his father's family and his mother's family can never really be absent from Deer Park as they had so much to do with making our neighborhood what it is today. Jack's determined efforts in organizing the Neighborhood Council and his leadership during the early days of our group stopped Deer Park's from sliding into an area of little more than businesses and transients. Every one of us who values our neighborhood as a good place for families to live owes more to Jack than we can pay. I hope he'll keep up his interest in what happens here and return often to visit and maybe even give some advice.



Jack has promised to lend me some of his history materials to copy and add to a little history-of-Deer Park collection for the city archives. I hope you too will share your family history with me for our collection. If there's enough interest, perhaps I can get it all printed into booklet form for us each to have. Please think seriously about that. Surely, even if you're too modest to want to have yourself remembered, you'd like to honor your family members by having a record of their lives here.







The construction in University Park where streets are finished continues rapidly. Land has been cleared from Storen down past Baldwin and Powell Streets, behind the Westview Baptist Church, almost to the head of Wheaton Street for even more construction to begin soon. The developers confirmed this week that they will definitely be connecting their road to the end of Powell because the DOT has required them to have an outlet on the Fernwood side of their development.









New homes will be added to the two lots on Otranto that are located on the Deerwood side of Jenny Lind. The two houses presently there will remain, and a little road off Jenny Lind will enter what is now their back yards. The road will be a cul-de-sac with ten houses to be built along it.



You have probably noticed that the new Kerr Drugstore on the corner of Shadow and University Boulevard is going up quickly. There's still no definite news about any of the other lots in that business area between Shadow and Fernwood. 











It’s almost that time of year again!  To everyone in our community who wishes to participate again this year in the 2007 Clean City Sweep: we will be meeting at Bobby Jameson’s house, 8965 Deerwood Drive, here in Deer Park, at 8.a.m. until approximately 11 a.m.  If anyone has a project or a suggestion on a project, please give our Deer Park Civic Club President, Julia Long a call.  Her telephone number is listed below.
