2023 Annual Meeting
The Northwood Hills Homeowners Association Annual Meeting took place on Tuesday, February 7th at the District 11 Council office at the Prism Center (5580 Peterson Ln, Suite 175). Doors opened at 6:30pm for snacks and fellowship, with the business meeting starting at 7pm. Council Member Jaynie Schultz was on hand to provide updates about our District and answer your questions. Details were provided on the Association’s activities including Security, Beautification, and Membership Outreach/Benefits. The 2023 Budget was presented and approved by the members in attendance.
The annual report with the recap of 2022 and a snapshot of what we hope to accomplish in 2023 can be found here. The presentation slides from the meeting can be found here.
Capital Improvement Items for Bond Consideration
District 11 Council Member Schultz has asked us to organize a list of capital improvements that we want addressed in our neighborhood, in anticipation of the 2024 Bond election. Examples would be street reconstruction, alley reconstruction, flooding issues, parks, or any places in Northwood Hills you believe the entire city should invest in to improve. Those neighborhoods that organize will have a much stronger opportunity to be included in the election because it is often a matter of voices represented. IF YOU ARE AWARE OF CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT ISSUES THAT THE CITY HAS FAILED TO REMEDY DUE TO SIZE/COST, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE SUBMITTED THEM TO 311 FIRST AND THEN SUBMIT THEM here.
We will compile the list for our neighborhood and present to our Council Member at the appropriate time this year.
29th Annual NHHA Independence Day Parade and Celebration – Monday July 4
It takes a village to pull off NHHA’s signature event – the 29th Annual Independence Day Parade and Celebration. We need tons of volunteers, and if we all pitch in a little, you won’t miss out on any of the fun. Any time you are able to spare will be a big help in ensuring the success of the festivities. Please review the opportunities here and sign up for one or more spots! More instructions will be provided to volunteers as we approach the big day.
We want to thank the sponsors who underwrite this event and ultimately make it possible! If the need arises, please consider using these service providers, as they have shown their support for Northwood Hills:
- Ready Roofing & Solar
- The Shamsa Group (Ebby Halliday, Realtors)
- CSB Design
- The Redpath Team (Allie Beth Allman & Associates)
- Traver Construction
- Van Wunnik and Marcum, LLC (Certified Public Accountants)
- Leslie Pulaski (Ebby Halliday, Realtors)
- Hiatus Spa + Retreat
Here’s the schedule of events for Monday, July 4th:
7:45am — Parade registration opens
8:30am — Parade entries assemble
8:45am — National Anthem; Pledge of Allegiance
9:00am — Parade steps off!
9:30am — Post-parade games/activities begin
10:15am — Announcement of Trophy Winners
11:30am — Games/activities wrap up
Where: Pre- and post-parade activities are at Northwood Hills Elementary School. The Parade Route is south from the school on Meandering Way, west on Oakbluff, north on Brookcrest, east/northeast on Briar Cove, east on Cliffbrook across Meandering Way back to the school.
Parade Entries: EVERYONE is welcome to be in the Parade. But, if you want to be considered for a Judges’ Prize/Trophy, you must register and get a number and be associated with a Northwood Hills address. You can do that on-site the morning of the Parade beginning at 7:45am, or IF YOU ARE AN NHHA MEMBER you can register in advance and avoid the line by emailing us. We’ll pre-register you and send you a PDF of your entry # so you can print it off and attach it in the best manner possible ahead of time. This is especially helpful if you want to display the number in more than one place.
Entries/Trophies: Strollers, trikes, bikes, wagons, decorated cars, vintage cars, golf carts, floats, walkers, dogs – bring it on! Our prize categories include Best Hat, Best in Blue, Best in Red, Fun & Fired Up Family, Most Patriotic, Best Motorized Entry, Most Original, Best Dressed Pet, and multiple Spirit awards for those who awe, amaze and defy conventional categories.
Important: Parade participants CANNOT throw candy, trinkets or anything else from your entry to the spectators. If you have a true float (a trailer pulled behind a vehicle), make sure you can navigate all turns safely, that your occupants are secure, and that you don’t have any loose items protruding from your float.
Parade Order:The order in which we line up and proceed through the route is a function of safety for all participants, and is strictly enforced by on-site DPD officers.
- Floats, cars and trucks go first
- Other motorized vehicles, 4-wheelers and motorcycles
- Non-motorized bikes and small “wheeled” vehicles
- Strollers and pedestrians
Cost: Parade participation, and all games, activities and refreshments are FREE to everyone. The parade is paid for by Northwood Hills Homeowners Association with the assistance of sponsorships.
Post-Parade Activities: Inflatable games, bounce houses, basketball shoot out, dunk tank, popcorn, cotton candy, airbrush tattoos, balloon animals, popsicles, and more!
Dogs: Well-behaved dogs are welcome ON A LEASH. This is a big, active crowd. Please consider your dog’s temperament when evaluating whether or not to include him/her at the Parade. Dog shade/water available after the Parade.
There are NO bathroom facilities on-site. Don’t forget sunscreen! Bring your phone/camera!
Other: NO PARKING along Cliffbrook in front of the school – we need that area for staging the parade entries. There’s plenty of parking on the east side of the school along Birchridge.
